Country Mouse in New York City
I’m packing up my belongings to, once again, move far away. I’ve learned I can enjoy it a little if I take control of the situation by pulling out all of my belongings, reorganizing and pairing down. For some reason I have tax returns dating back to 2008. I don’t need those to come with me.
In this process I found some old sketch books as well as a bunch of loose papers I’m surprised survived all these moves.
Here are some I had all but forgotten existed.
First is a design of a girl who kind of looks a little like me. The head rotation isn’t the greatest (especially the profile that seems to be all nose and no chin), but I really do enjoy a lot about her. I’m especially fond of her hands. It’s a shame she ended up in the bottom of a trunk.
I also dug up some drawings that were from a book of Steve McCurry photography (the National Geographic photographer famous for “The Afghan Girl”)
The photos I took are a little grainy, but I couldn’t muster the energy to boot up the ol’ scanner.
Happy American Easter!
