In honor of FLIGHT

Posting a little late today. I had a 9 a.m. dentist appointment this morning in order to get a degraded filling replaced. I was amazed at how fast and painless it was. My dentist, Dr. Sam Chang, is a wonderful dentist with a great “chair side manner” and is very thorough in explaining his processes. I had some left over bad childhood memories of pretty rough treatment at the hands of dentists when I first got my fillings– Dr. Chang helped negate all that. And it only took 20 minutes! Fortunately, almost all the anesthetic has just about worn off, so I don’t feel like the left side of my face is sliding off anymore.

I also ran by my local comic shop and picked up a few new books– the most exciting of them being the new FLIGHT anthology helmed by Kazu Kibuishi…

I’ve only had the opportunity to look through it so far– but visually, it’s everything I was thinking/hoping it would be and much, much more. I’ve been looking forward to this book ever since I first heard of it and saw a little preview art. It’s so magical, whimsical and full of wonder– it’s something that would make an incredible introduction to the potential of comics and as a great gift to anyone wanting to “indoctrinate” someone into what beautiful comics can be (and in FLIGHT’s case– ARE). I’m sure reading the stories will be just as great an experience– but even if some of them fall a bit flat, being an artist myself, the artwork alone is worth the price of admission for me.

And so, in honor of the wonderous acheivement that is FLIGHT, I present today’s sketch.

Got to get to it now…
