You're welcome! And thank-you as well for the vote of confidence! I'll post some work-in-progress scans in a couple weeks.

Some of you expressed interest in owning a print of my Continental 737-300 profile drawing.



I'm happy to say that the prints are in (finally) and they look great.

I'm offering signed prints for sale for $25 plus $5 shipping. They come in a protective display sleeve on black mounting paper. Here's a pic:



The display case measures 11x14 inches.

PM me if you are interested. PayPal is preferred, but I'll accept money orders or Western Union as well.

This will look great on display in your model room or with your Continental or 737 fleet!

Hey guys,

For those of you interested, here are some scans of my current drawing. It's been underway for about three weeks, and although progress is slow, I'm happy with everything so far. This drawing is to the same scale (approximately 1:115) as my 737-300 profile drawing I recently completed.

(The cheatline color came out a little bright and saturated in the scan, and there's some overall quality loss as well. And on the actual drawing, there is a much clearer difference between the tones of the two red cheatline stripes. Cheap scanner...)




Also, I've still got prints of the CO 733 drawing for sale for $25. Thanks to all you who've purchased one. Anyone else, PM me if interested.

Mike, have you ever considered submitting some of your work to some airliner magazines? Think you should, they would definitely accept them.

I've actually tried selling on Ebay, but there really isn't a customer base for it. I think that submitting them to a magazine is probably a better way to gain exposure as an artist.
Another way is to join ASAA (American Society of Aviation Artists) if you are a yank and GAvA (Guild of Aviation Artists) if you are a Brit. The aviation greats are on them.
A part of me wants to keep this a hobby, though. Are you with me, Mike?

Nah, this will be mainline CO. Air Mike is cool but my dad flew 727s for CO, but never for Air Mike, so there's not as much sentimental value in an Air Mike 727 for me.

Thanks Bill-ay. The thought has crossed my mind, yes, and it would be a dream come true to see my work in published form. I should look into it.

Aside from selling a few copies of my drawings to fellow airliner enthusiasts, I'm with you.

Yeah, unfortunately my drawings take a painfully long time to finish. But I'd rather complete one a year and achieve as perfect of a result as I can than rush through a drawing and have a mediocre result. Every aspect and detail of one of my drawings, no matter how trivial, is worked and reworked until I am completely satisfied I cannot feasibly improve on it. The process can be frusterating at times but I'm usually happy with the results.

It also looks like I won't be finishing this drawing before I head back to school at the end of August, so it will be shelved until next summer at that time.

I've kept a log of the time I've spent on the CO 721 drawing, and I'd spent about 90 hours on it at the time of the scans. I haven't done much work on it in the past couple of weeks though. Time-wise, I estimate I'm about 20-25% done with this drawing.

I am actually almost finished with a Hawaiian B717 in the latest colors! I really love how it's progressing. I'll keep you guys posted.

I have had some requests from members here to do paintings for them, and I will be glad to oblige. I will contact you guys by PM very shortly. I just wanted to show you what my paintings look when they are framed so you can get an idea of how they look in your den, office or hobby area.

This frame shown is custom made, with glass and Philippine mahogany, and it measures 11 inches by 8 inches...small enough to compete for wall space! It is a little pricey, but one could always frame it by themselves as well.

Here is the pic! (P.S...never mind about Christopher Walken over there..he's just wanting more cowbell.)

Can't wait to see your finished stuff, Mike777. Citationdrvr, I love your unique artwork, too. I like the F4u-1 Corsair over on the military side of DAC, too. Keep up the good work guys!!!!

I still need some practice to make the wheels tredimensional though. Sorry for the quality of this photo, It's kinda washed out, I don't have a scanner, so I just took a snapshot with my camera, too bad you can see the lines (due to the flash) where I draw with the pencil on the shower.
