This Issue’s Cover -63

Fledge

Sometimes it’s the little things. I found Tim Sayeau’s You’ve Got To Be Kidding! so charming I knew I wanted to base the cover on it, but agonized over what to focus on. After many long searches for images of Nutschel came up empty-handed  I had to scratch my original concepts. Still, there had to be something! Then I recalled how much I enjoyed the bit about someone painting Fledge, the first flying horse of Narnia, on the Gustav plane that carried the series to the new Narnians. And so, I have attempted an homage to that. I’m sure it’s not the most realistic depiction of an airplane nose, and nose art is traditionally a bit cartoonish, so I do hope you will forgive me for a bit of whimsy.

      Thanks again, Lorraine! I didn’t feel as confident about this piece as I might have liked, so it’s good to hear someone thought it was fun.

    Little late to add, but wow! Two stories printed, and the cover?!?!? Cue music= “Believe it or not, I’m walking on air/I never thought I could feel so free/Flying away on a wing and a prayer/Believe it or not/I’m walking on air!”
