“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

[MESSAGE ONE. MESSAGE RECEIVED 10:37PM, SATURDAY]: "Hoooooonnnneeeey! Hope you're okay. Uhm, I don't know what's going on exactly. The pilot just came on said there was something wrong with our runway or there was something happening so now were just sitting around. It's been, what? An hour and a half... two hours almost... and it's really obnoxious and I can smell some guy wearing that terrible Axe body wash sh*t that I hate so much. I can see other planes, about...uhm... at least two or three of them... and they don't look like they're going anywhere either. God, I wish you picked up. I miss your voice. I know I'm supposed to save my battery, but I miss your voice and I could really use a stupid joke from you right now. Uhm... okay. I'm gonna go. Love you."
[MESSAGE TWO. MESSAGE RECIEVED 11:25PM, SATURDAY] "Hi, hi. I *still* don't know what's going on. People are just... some lady is just screaming and crying a couple of seats up. I can't get the stewardess to even look at me! They're all just telling everyone to stay calm and that we're supposed to taxi back to the gate. Wait... she's about to say it what's up... uhm... I'll call you back okay? Love you! Bye!"

Nice sketches and narrative.

So, they taxi'd back to the airport, and she tried calling him back but and only got static in the terminal. He knew she was on her way home, so he went in the rain to pick her up.

Damn, dude. Been a while since I checked in on your blog. I really love the sketch and narrative pieces. Especially these cars in the rain for some reason. Hope I will see you at San Diego this year. First time I'll be there in a few years.
