I talked to my mom this morning, and we ended up reminiscing on our past family vacations, as my sister, who is a junior in high school, is on spring break and they have been traveling a lot for college visits. When I was young, my family would travel to Colorado every summer to go hiking, biking, and exploring in the mountainous region.  We talked about the time when I was around 9 or 10 and we were on a hike in Beaver Creek, Colorado. It was near the end of the hike, when we were making our way back down into the valley, when my entire family stopped to step over what they all thought was a piece of rope. However, the rope started moving. I am going to preface this with the fact that I have a huge fear of snakes. I hold my breath when passing snake exhibits at the zoo and I think it’s truly crazy that people have them as pets. When I saw the snake, my parents joke that I am the first human that flew. I jumped so high and screamed so loudly. With this memory fresh in my mind, after reading the description for this weeks Sunday sketch, I knew exactly what I was going to do. I found a picture of a snake and combined it with the picture of the rope. The movement of both allow the images to feel more connected. I think this image, and the project as a whole, gives people the opportunity to see that things are not always what they seem at first glance. Screen Shot 2018-04-01 at 1.51.33 PM
