I gave birth to a baby girl on Halloween morning, and was sketching her right from day one. (I actually packed my watercolor kit and a good squirrel mop brush in my hospital bag--laughable to see me pondering what brush is best for the occasion!--but have nonetheless only done pen sketches of her so far.)
Sketching helps me wrap my head around this momentous event. Who is this tiny human? What does she look like, how does she move?
Simultaneously adorable and surreal, bizarre.
It it that it's rounder, taller, wider...? Still can't pin down the exact dynamics that makes a baby's face distinct.
But good job, evolution, on making baby faces absolutely fascinating.
