Geekline

I had this idea for a self-promotional piece. As a geek of sorts, I was thinking about how we the geeks always end up in lines. We line up for store openings when new merchandise hits. We line up at theaters when the latest blockbuster comes out. We line up for tickets at conventions and once we get there, we line up for convention exclusives, autographs, and food. So I drew a cross-section of geeks, notice the lanyards. I'm still goofing around with it, and there's always room in line for a few more. Click image for a larger view.

Nice. As a fellow geek, I can appreciate this. You just need some trekkies in there!

Yeah, you're right. Someone needs Spock ears or a tricorder.

By the way, to be serious, I'm VERY impressed with the variety and the humor and, let's say, the MUSICAL quality of the line of individuals, forming a beautiful, linear composition.

Each person I drew is loosely based on a random person walking by me. I suppose you can see some elements that would remind you of people we know, but I assure you, it's purely coincidental.
