Attending to the Sketchbook 

I've been daydreaming alot lately in my sketchbook.

However, as I start to fall pretty deep into the rabbit hole and lose sense of the impending end to the summer- I have to keep poking my head out into reality for air - and I thought what better time to share some details of pages with you. These sketches are all unfinished and these photos are pretty shabby and taken with my cell phone...when they're finished I'll post better, clearer and protected images.

This is a sketch of the winner of the television show 'So You Think You Can Dance' doing a dance number while I paused the recording.

the one of the fox and the woman eating the bird one freaks me out because of the symbolism. everything looks so good though. i love seeing your work. i can't wait for you to see my sketchbook tonight.

Ms. Diaz the sketches are so beautiful.
I love your understanding of animal/human form
Hopefully you know what I'm getting at here....
Otherwise I just sound crazy :D
