I love the desert, and it seems to me that it's very underappreciated. People like big trees and deer, or beaches and fish, but I've learned to really love all these pointy, prickly, gray, dead-looking, evil plants and animals that crawl and attack me. They're so unique and resilient, it's amazing! I want to spread the love and appreciation I feel to anyone who is willing to listen. . .or read my field guide. It'll be self-published through Blurb.com, and maybe I'll get a bunch to distribute around Tucson. I haven't began putting the book together yet, but here are some of my favorite drawings for it. I'll keep you posted on how it goes.
