Oldie but a goodie...pretty sure I did this in a freshman year foundation drawing class. The whole class was given sections from a larger photograph of ventriloquists and their dummies, and as long as the characters on the outer edges matched up with our neighboring classmates', we had the liberty to change up the subjects however we pleased. I went for the pop culture/nostalgia route. Can you name them all?? Ink, colored pencil on toned paper. ©1997, 2012 John Ashton Golden.
