A Little Bit on the Sketchy Side: Brian Joseph Davis has had the ingenious idea of having police composite sketching software draft up literary characters. Check out a sketch of Hiro Protagonist from Neil Stephenson’s Snow Crash.

I like being able to see if a character’s composite sketch looks anything like I imagined. It’s also cool to see how closely movie adaptations came to recreating a character. Davis takes requests, so send him a passage describing your favorite character if you want to see him or her drawn out like a person of interest.
