Ever since I saw La Strada, saw Giulietta Massina look at a tree and for a moment become one, I think of arms when I see branches. Or is it the other way round?
Like humans, trees have a structure underneath, nodules like knees or elbows when their limbs change direction. We even visualize our ancestry as family trees. And trees are the most dominant living form on earth's surface, more numerous than humans, though humans seem bent on destroying them.
And I'm bent on drawing them.
