Orphans have a way of seeing the world like no one else. I enjoy coming up with stories that include a focal orphan achetype. (See Carol Pearson's book, "Awakening the hero within," or anything by Joseph Campbell)

I was flipping through an old sketchbook the other day and I came across the rough character drawing for the sketch above. This turtle is based on the species I did my undergraduate ecology research on, back before I remembered drawing is what I enjoy doing best. I scribbled in some tone tonight and posted it just for you..
