The Pilgrim's Progress (part 3)- Apollyon

Here is the second panel I have worked on for a book based on Nate Currin's album, The Pilgrim, based on The Pilgrim Progress by John Bunyun.  This panel is for the song, "Apollyon, That Old Serpent The Devil."  It is officially the largest file I have ever created for a single piece of art at 9.2gb!
There are plenty of more for me to work on and possibly show.  Until then, check out Nate's album as it is now available!

 This month I had the opportunity of a lifetime to celebrate my 26th birthday
doing something I had really wanted to do: fly in some vintage planes from WWII.
On my birthday, the 24th of July, I got to fly in "Gunfighter," a P-51D Mustang!  It was the best plane I have ever flown in.  I also had a unique opportunity to present, Larry (the pilot), with my cutaway drawing of a Mustang.  Now my art is hanging in their museum!  It is one thing to research and draw a piece of important history, it is another thing to actually fly in it!
Later in the week I got to fly in a B-25 Mitchell Bomber.  This thing is LOUD!  I was able to sit up in the nose for the majority of the flight and it was awesome!  I feel privileged to have been given two good views in two amazing planes!
The rest of the vacation was pretty cool as well as I got my first flight lesson where I learned how to take off, recover from a stall, and land a plane.  I also got to launch some model rockets.  All in all, it was a pretty spectacular vacation.  Now back to working on some art...
