Hmong Dabs

These are dabs. I was reading The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down by Anne Fadiman which describes the Hmong people's belief in powerful spirits, dabs, which can injure or cause illness or protect and assist humans. While I was drawing, Aaron looked over and said what are you drawing? Are you okay? That looks crazy. Are you going to show that to other people? They might think you're crazy if they see that.
Anyway, I really like the dab's cat face on the right.
