JUST A LEAGUE...



When I think of flight I associated with fear or fantasy. Actually being on a plane (which I did a lot of last week) causes anxiety in me. I also have the occasional dream of having the power of flight in the way the superheroes in my comics do. I love those dreams. Sometimes I have a lot of control over my maneuvering, other times I'm just learning. In this image I tried to depict flight as a metaphor for power, strength, & wonder. Beyond that, this is my riff at an Alex Ross or Bruce Timm interpretation of superheroes in flight. It was fun, it was quick. Happy to be posting again.
