Do you know your Dickens?

You know it's almost Christmas when you find a production of Dicken's 'A Christmas Carol' being performed at your local grocery store. That's just what happened this Saturday: our neighborhood Whole Foods announced that San Jose Youth Shakespeare was performing the play at the store, so I was there. With my sketchkit, ofcourse.
If you know your Dickens you should be able to figure out some of these characters. (most of them are named in this flickr set, some I still don't know) Period costumes are so much fun to draw!

Dicken's Christmas Carol

Lots more sketches including studies of Scrooge on my blog.
Happy Holidays!

SO cool, Suhita! I LOVE this...we had a Dickens Fair in KC ages ago and I sketched like mad too, but yours are so fresh! Especially love the guy on the right.
