These two character sketches were drawn at a technology conference I attended for school. I used a cheap ball point pen to make the sketches. The pen was the only thing I had on me at the time. The fellow that looks a little like Santa Claus gave a presentation all about a fun software program called comic life. During the presentation he was very inanimate and never smiled. The fellow with the monkey on his back was the opposite. He was overly animated and kept saying how technology should not be considered a monkey on our backs; hence the monkey on his back.
