I've been drawing birds. Since they're for a magazine assignment, I can't show them to you just yet. But I can show you this. Is it a bird or an airplane....? I drew it in my scrapbook. I had good intentions with this scrapbook; I started gluing things in it, but it ended up being a sketchbook. Reverting to my true nature... the moral of which is be who you are.
I was thinking of St-Exupéry's book Vol de Nuit [Night Flight]. The Little Prince is his best-known work, but Vol de Nuit is what sticks in my mind.
