Famous Faces: Happy Birthday, Lewis Carroll

Lewis Carroll, pen name for Charles Lutwidge Dodgson was born on this day (January 27), 1832, well-known mostly as the author of Alice and Wonderland.

On this day, 2013, I tried sketching his portrait — as well as a study from one of John Tenniel’s illustrations in Alice and Wonderland (1865 edition). Graphite on paper, dimensions of each: rather small.
