I was going to snark about how she shouldn't quit her day job, but I followed the links. I think these are quite wonderful.

I always dug her poetry too.

Amazing that much talent in one person.

It's like there is no hesitation in her lines.

These sketches are fairly accomplished, but at the same time the relative positioning of objects and emphasized variation of lines seem to speak of a certain instability. I hope that Ms. Plath seeks help, if indeed she needs it.

I love her poetry :) I had no idea she was so talented in drawing as well.
