I.F. Secret

That's handy, having just reworked this last week... the original idea was to have the kids and the inventor flying in secret above the clouds. Never quite worked out where they were heading. The original picture is lurking on flickr somewhere... I will refrain from linking to it as it blows.

The colour? On a flight to England once, during the decent, the sky...clouds... the whole goddam empyreal above was a luminous green. It was dreamlike and wonderful. Still hate flying mind...

Hahaha, I bet the original is really cool. This is such a wonderful style that I can't imagine you do much that really "blows". Just terrific characters in their warm coats and a lovely magical feeling to the whole thing.
