This is a drawing of some elderly passengers on a Southwest flight waiting for boarding. I liked the series […]

Los sentidos humanos, por lo tanto, son receptores físicos a través de los cuales toda persona experimenta el ambiente, sea natural o artificial.

On the same hike, I started scoping out some local blooming flowers for a mural for my downstairs bathroom. For a little context, the bathroom is small, under the stairs and ugly. When we bought our house last January, there was even a mirror covering the ceiling (so you can watch yourself pee, I guess?) […]
