Mew Gull

Pencil and watercolor on a moleskine pad. The Mew Gull is quite a special plane, only six of these were ever built and only one survives. It was the first civil aircraft to exceed 200 miles per hour in the 1930s. I squished its proportions a little too much in my drawing, lost some of the design elegance, you can see a photo here.

    I agree on the proportions, Enrico … on the other hand: If I’d seen the exact drawn copy of the photo, I’d have thought you’d have been wrong :-) that plane really looks akward – worth another story!

    – and here’s another KLIMT-Link for you – found at

    Thorten – yah I have seen that link too from drawn, nice website. I have so many Klimt books though that the galleries on the site feel a little skimpy.

    Don- thanks man. Not sure if I’ll be able to, just got back into work …

    Man Arenas- thanks man. I love your work … your blog is always super inspiring. Your piece for the art benefit in May 07 was stunning !! Wish I had won it, Ronnie got it instead. X)
