Lost Ladies: The Sketchbook Project, 2012

So many “unconventional” women have been lost to history. Those who are most frequently lost through the march of time are the weird and/or the women, and those who practice “alternative lifestyles” (in the current parlance of modern pop talk). Lost Ladies is a celebration of the weirdos, outcasts, social deviants, and outré others whose lives and stories have been ignored.
