Flying backwards


How often do you get to fly backwards, at the front of the plane, facing everybody else? It never happened to me before, for sure, and it is a very peculiar feeling to not be pushed back but forward during take-off.

Anyhow, I had to take advantage of the rare occasion, so tried a bit more Bic Cristal play in this sketch. Warm colour for the foreground, blue for the background. I have to confess I waited until the man opposite me went to the toilet, before drawing the details of that seat – he didn´t seem to have a super great day to begin with, didn´t want to make things worse by constantly staring at him during the whole flight… 😉
