My dad used to say ” a move was as good as a change” but I personally think the opposite to be true: “a change is as good as a move.” Living in Clarksville is nice but I do miss the gypsy days of my younger years when it seemed like I was moving every year or three. Funny thing: I always felt a bit short-changed at the time because I didn’t have a home town – place where I spent my entire youth from birth to young adulthood, but after living for extended periods in some places I realized that I like a change of venue from time to time.
All of which has nothing to do with the new masthead illustration. The title is “Solo Kill” and it was painted with acrylics on a 36″ X 15″ Masonite panel. It was produced in 1990 and is based on a book written by Skye Boult – and if you search through my older Solo Kill posts you will find that there’s actually an interesting back story to both the book and the painting.
…and yes, it really is a cat flying that airplane.
