Illustration Friday - Sail

I always prefer flying instead of sailing. Typical view from the cheap seats, right before the bald guy in front of me leans back and spills my drink in my lap and onto my computer bag, with a wailing baby and 2 drunk passengers providing the soundtrack.

Maybe I should take up sailing?

You may remember this post: things I notice on the airplane ride.

Today is 8/8/08. :-)

  9. Have a few drinks and you won't notice the other things. Flying sober is for wimps.

    BTW, I have yet to recline my chair. Why move back an inch to what seems like a mile to the person behind you?

    Did you notice that you weren't FIRST this week at IF? Ha! Losing your mojo? But great illo as always.

  12. Wow, sounds like Heaven...where do I sign up? I always tend to sketch in the airport and on the plane, too. Makes it bearable. Hey thanks for popping by for a visit. Good to hear from you. :-)

  13. Could this be Willie's Wager: "i sketch therefore i exist."?

  15. haha, sweet drawing Willie. i've been enjoying the Boltbus lately myself-kind of like a plane on wheels, and far cheaper. Still, I flew for the first time in years not so long ago, and I thoroughly enjoyed it, even as a passenger in the crappy seats.

  24. I like the backs of the heads, you've captured the situation, I'm even getting irritated with them just looking at the drawing. I'd love to smack them with my rolled up newspaper.

    If you fly, you don't have to worry about swabbing the decks or getting scurvy. If you are sailing and stuck with spitting up babies and drunk passengers, you can always retreat to your hammock down in the hold.

    I think it's six of one and half a dozen of the other, one just involves a bit more rum.

  25. GREAT stuff! Love that style, but have to agree I hate flying "cattle class" too.
