This past Sunday – Father’s Day, I was treated to handmade cards by my kids… I like handmade cards the best… Don’t get me wrong, beautiful artwork on store-bought American Greetings or Hallmark cards are great because some fantastically talented illustrator had to paint the original. However, hand-drawn artwork by your own kids trumps them all. My middle daughter Hannah, who loves zombie movies, and is convinced that there is a “zombie apocalypse” in our not-too-distant future, also knows of my appreciation of all things steampunk. She also obviously knows that my focus is on airships.
Being Father’s Day and taking all of the above facts into consideration, the logical action as far as she was concerned, was to create a Father’s Day card that was a “zombie meets airship designer” novelette. Below are the 10 pages of her artwork that made up the book/card. Thank you Hannah… and thanks to Kayli and Noah for their handmade cards as well… I love you all!
I hope all you fathers and fathers-to-be had a great Father’s Day!
My next post will be on how I finished the Diabolus, the airship seen at the World Steam Expo’11. Is there anyone whose kids drew them a Father’s Day card and would like to have it posted here?
