Almond Shaped Eyes

The idea for the 'Art by Committee' sketchbook happened when I was working on a lot of paperback covers. I had a habit of snipping out odd lines from science fiction manuscripts that struck me as fun prompts for sketching games, such as: 

"One man, whose eyes were more almond-shaped than those of the others..."

So I taped these snippets into a large sketchbook. Whenever I was hanging out in a diner with fellow illustrators, we would sketch a solution to one of these out-of-context excerpts while waiting for our meal. It was very spontaneous and fun, and after a while we had a whole sketchbook full of these illustrations.
