Buuuuut eventually people started becoming interested, and once I'd got a few done everyone was lining up! It got pretty damn busy >_< Even the event manager of the bar wanted one (you can see it next to my elbow in the photo above).
I had heaps of fun, and got to sneak glances at the calligraphers all night. In the above photo I'm drawing Madam Johnway. Our crossdressing geisha.
... Don't ask.
And finally, here's some of the portraits I got done both on the night and a few done shortly afterwards (I couldn't get everyone's done in the 4 hours of the event, haha.)
I think I did around twenty+ portraits in the end, they were so much fun to do. Definitely going to continue to offer these at other events, such as the London Expo at the end of this month (eee, so excited for that, it's right after my degree show.)
