A Fable

I´m working on a new series with fable illustrations - 
this is the lastest one I finished yesterday and which fits to our theme this week.

Homage to History's Forgotten Women Aviators

Before Amelia Earhart, three female pilots attempted the transatlantic journey made famous by Charles Lindbergh.

Elsie Mackay was a British actress, interior decorator and pioneering aviator. Mabel Boll, known as the Queen of Diamonds, was an American socialite. And Ruth Elder, a beauty pageant contestant, used her winnings for flying lessons and became the preeminent American girl of the sky.

I have represented two of the women as I imagined them back in the 1920s, and the third is up in the sky!

Flying Down to Rio (Economy Class)

Dream big but fly carefully ....
