Beale Air Force Base

I almost forgot about this one but I really enjoyed sitting on the runway and drawing this extraordinary aircraft.

Here we are again, I'm making some changes to this one today to deal with the matter of scale. I'm quite excited about the mood with this one, I'm looking forward to seeing how it develops.

Beale Air Force Base

Some kind of folk lift truck that was used to load things onto other things, what can I say, it was classified.

Beale Air Force Base

So was a beauty, once again, I can't give to the details but I'm enjoying you all filling me in. These jets were used to train pilots and were in full use. whilst this does not come across in the sketch, they were big black and mean looking.

Beale Air Force Base

I can't remember what kind of aircraft this was but it was the first drawing I made on a hot desert landing field. I came , I drew, I burned my ass.

Air Force Program

Three photo's posted in a row, that's hardly sketches is it? I've got sketches and plenty of them but right now I don't have a scanner to hand but here I am with my fellow Air Force program colleges in front of the plane that holds the speed record for getting from New York to LA in 63 minutes, something like that anyway, I really should pay more attention. We were at Beale Air Force base in California and had a truly great week, I might have mentioned that yesterday, put it down to jet lag. Sketches to follow. Stay tuned good people of the world, I'm almost back to what I've come to consider normal.
