ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY: ADAPT



BRACE FOR IMPACT! ALL HANDS! This image is a tribute to all the incredibly STUPID things I did as a youngster. I had an old beater of a bike that I took off of any manner of ramps and jumps--most of which went horribly wrong resulting usually in very sore bits "down there." I never tried the wings admittedly, but I thought about it. This piece obviously depicts a much older dude, possibly a shell-shocked former fighter pilot who is feeling an urge to take to the skies once again but is lacking the necessary "vehicle."
