Illustration Friday: Clear
Never is there more of a need to clear the skies than when Andy the Amazing Flying Ace takes to flight. While many of his tricks are downright....well, amazing, he's often unpredictable, doesn't have the best brakes, and he's not exactly known for flying in a straight line. So, if you happen to hear his plane engine buzzing near, unless you'd like a propeller up the nose, it would be best if you cleared the runway, and gave him the right of way.
I loosely sketched the idea for this illustration as I was driving on the toll road to go visit my parents, (even though I never condone sketching and driving). I was thinking that I was soon going to see little Andy, the most precious kitty that ever was, and his tendency to sometimes fly at great distances off the bed or couch rather than simply jump down, and so the character of Andy the Amazing Flying Ace was born.
A 'History of Angela' Fun Fact: My high school class was so apathetic that our class color was 'clear'.
