When I started blogging my drawings I was working in small bound books (Moleskines), one drawing a day: bound drawings that somehow maintained a daily narrative, inseparable from their collective physical context. As time went on, the drawings became more complex and more enmeshed in an on-going thought process. They start one day and finish whenever they finish and I work in several sketchbooks at the same time, of various sizes. And the pages are now removable.
I work with internal (anatomy, a continuing fascination) and external (flux of experience and environment). And, over the last 10 years I’ve been experimenting with in-image captions, more and more in Spanish.
(Drawings are pencil, ink, watercolor, whatever on paper: various sketchbooks, going one book to the next. And the pages are now removable. All art copyright Sharon Frost, firstname.lastname@example.org).

Estamos aquilando un apartemento en Cádiz con dos terrazos estupendos, pero sin Internet (y. para nosotros, el apartamento es caro). Para los primeros días el wifi gratis en las plaza no funcionaba tampoco. Que pena. Buenos, ¡La Plaza Mina sirve!
(We're renting an apartment in Cádiz with two wonderful terraces, but without Internet (surprising since, for us this apartment is expensive. For the first few days the free wifi in the plazas didn't work either. Ack! Well, Plaza Mina works this morning.

(I have niether dog nor flute, Plaza del Arenal. This refers to media references to the 15M protestors in Madrid who were called street people/hippies. The encampment in Jerez is small, but it persists.)
