This is a detail of a larger drawing that was done 20 years ago. The trees limbs grow out from the trunk and connect in a way that much more closely resembles the capillaries of a vascular system than the branches of a tree. Our connection to the other life forms is a consistent theme in my work. Our relationship to everything, not simply other living creatures, but every aspect of being, is a constant source of amazement and inspiration.
If you always look down, you miss the beauty of what's around you in each of life's fleeting moments. The precious experience of simply being in the moment. If you never look down, you won't see that five dollar bill the guy in front of you dropped.
