Astrid Farnsworth Doing The Batusi

Astrid Farnsworth Doing The Batusi

‘Tusi #: 039

ArtistJasika Nicole
Subject: Astrid Farnsworth (from Fringe)
Date: February 7, 2009
Location: New York Comic Con – Javits Center, New York, New York, U.S.A.

Notes: On the Saturday of the 2009 New York Comic Con, 2 cast members of the hit TV show FRINGE, John Noble and Jasika Nicole, signed autographs at the Fan Expo Canada booth.  During a break I found out that Jasika is a cartoonist (and hand bag designer).  I asked if she wouldn’t mind adding to my sketch theme and she graciously agreed.  During lulls in the all-day signing she was able to knock out what is really a self-portrait.  And yes, I did ask:  Jasika/Astrid does Batusi with her eyes closed in real-life.  A totally unexpected artist addition to the Doing The Batusi theme!

That large stack of Aspen Comics was brought over by someone from their booth who had stopped by for an autograph (sorry I forgot your name).  Someone from DC (Mike??–again my apologies for my amnesia) also delivered a sizeable stack of comics for Jasika as well.  That made her day… I think 🙂
