Ow, my head hurts

Two bisected heads; first a pickled crocodile at the Grant Museum in London (tiny and old but very lovely), and then an anatomical model human at the Tokyo Museum of Emerging Science (large and modern, where I saw all the robots). I sketched them 3 days apart on either side of the globe, the wonders of the jet age. (That’s a printed line map of Japan on the human face, pre-stamped before I drew the head. I was running out of paper…)

    Can’t believe you ran out of Lexington paper!
