It's All in the Nose

So I was drawing in my sketchbook and I've been doing a mix of flowers, patterns and characters. In discovering what I wanted to draw, I realized what I really love about humans and drawing characters are their profiles and their noses. There is so much that goes into a nose; not only is it a part of our face and used as our smelling and breathing apparatus but it gives a face so much character. Even the word nose is synonymous with "detecting something" or having instinct. You can nose around, have a nose for something, put your nose in it, be nosey, nose dive, and even have something right under your nose. Ha! There are so many sayings that include a nose, it's kind of awesome. I've always loved noses - the bigger and more unusual, the better for me.
