Drawings by Colleen Martin: I moved away from my home city of Miami eight years ago and miss a lot of aspects from my childhood there. The last time I went back home I found that a childhood staple, Miami Subs and its TV advertisements, had been rebranded as a new chain. This is what my first drawing is. My second drawing is of a dream I recently had. I was taking a bath and the skin cells of my father who died 16 years ago came rushing in through the faucet. In both the dream and the drawing, the “skin cells” were actually just small, shiny, beautiful blue discs that I then began collecting. My third drawing is quite self-explanatory: a happy, fearless woman preparing to dive. These are each 2 3/4 x 4 inches.
