Ball point pen on the morning newsprint

The 2008 Democratic National Convention starts today. Obama has already proven that he and his campaign have great stage craft and there should be a big bounce from the four day show.... but then again, this is the democratic party... factor in the protesters, demonstrators and team Clinton, and all bets are off.

Piggybacking off of Stephen Gardner's Sketch of the Day postings of multiple versions of the same drawing I'm posting these doodles this morning. These are done very quickly (about a minute or two) so I don't mean to compare them with Stephen's studied drawings. Spontaneity often takes precedence over accuracy with these quick doodles. They are filled with mistakes, but hopefully they all capture an impression of the subject.
