Number 1: Sternum and Clavicle Bones

My first sketch of the year, (!) although technically it’s still December 31. But that’s OK.

I love the sternum. It’s such a strong feature of our anatomy, right out in front like a piece of armor protecting our hearts. I remember a classmate once saying that her coach told the players, “Keep your sternums up!” as a way to encourage posture that demonstrates pride and self-respect.

 
 

It reminds me of a bird, perhaps an owl. Clavicle bones are so graceful, like handlebars on a bicycle.
