House On The Mind.

Not sure why but a lot of my sketching involves girls wearing a house on their head. I'm pretty sure it's not a fashion thing. At least I hope not. I do dream a lot about houses (with maze like interiors) and apparently to do so is to explore an emotional vulnerability. It kind of makes sense. The sketch below adds in another favourite theme: the circus. Not sure what that means.

I think these are very cool- I have always thought that women and houses are intertwined-
Really lovely!

this made me think of a book about women's happiness called The Nine Rooms Of Happiness which uses the concept of the rooms in a home as the interior of a woman's psyche. your sketches show the literal house on her head, which may symbolize similar!
