Rationale
How can aesthetics be used to project emotion, indicate status, or reference biological organisms? Can it be ironic? Humorous? How and when do aesthetics create a layer of formal information beyond utilitarian function?

I consider the exploration and creation of these objects an exercise in "form-giving". While these "toothbrushes" are not functionally realistic, the manipulation of their form is explored as a tool of reference. 
Sketch models to inform 3D understanding of objects.
(5-10 minutes each)
Sketches to quickly ideate and develop forms from natural objects. 
(5-10 minutes each)
Sketches from RISD nature lab (photos 1, 2 and 3). Listing attributes of natural objects (photo 4). Initial sketching (photos 5, 6).
