I am no longer in the hospital, as of two weeks ago!
Aside from some portraits, I have still been busy filling my sketchbook.

I've been writing poems, for my Narrative Image class- I was able to get an incomplete and turn in my final project late, due to my illness. My proposed final project was a book of poems, written and illustrated by me.
 I've been through a lot in the past month and I've been attempting to work through some of it via poetry, but it's a slow and sometimes overwhelming process. The first image in this post- "spinal"- is something I think I'm going to use for my book. It needs more work, but I think it might make a good cover. 

I've also got to re-learn how to bookbind. I would like to handmake this poetry book.
