Flying Cirkus

The pieces selected for this wall (‘act’) of the show were all done while flying. Primarily on United Airlines flights as I travel the world. I find the time that I’m unplugged from the digital and electronic world on airplanes to be the best time to download whatever is on my mind.

I’m not a nervous flyer, but by focusing on writing or drawing during a flight I find myself not just productive, but also quite relaxed. It seems there are three types of pages I’ll create when I’m flying: capturing the experience of the trip I was just on, writing a poem, or sketching a graffiti piece. Occasionally, I’ll take notes from a book I’m reading and transcribe the juicy bits into my notebook.
