Found Sketches from Way Back

I’ve been working in our “new” attic room — sorting through so many boxes, and finding wonderful stuff among tons of junk.  In one of the 26 boxes stored in the attic that contained previously unknown content — boxes that I just sorted through — I found 18 sketches from my early college art classes. I’ve been searching for some of these for years, though I’d forgotten about some of the others. I’m so happy to have found these!

They’re not awesome, but I was just learning to draw — and I had a lot to learn — so bear with me.  Here are 3 sketches from my first drawing class after returning to school to study art:
