Yoga Skeleton Prehistory

Here are what I believe are the first skeletons doing asanas that I drew. I drew them before I had any kind of understanding of human anatomy, but I figured that it would be fun to look at my process. I put them in the front cover of my copy of David Swenson's Ashtanga Yoga: The Practice Manual, along with the opening chant for Ashtanga in transliterated Sanskrit and English translation. They represent a vinyasa. I should probably redraw a vinyasa for the back cover to go with the closing chant.

Always enjoy your skeletons - when I look over my old skeleton projects from college and then I see your drawings, always get inspired to pick up those rapidograph pens again.
