Flying Things

The first time the Wright Brothers flew, they landed after only 12 seconds. The only time this guy flew, he landed in just over two gasps and a scream. I'm not sure how many seconds that is, but it's probably more than twelve. The higher the cliff, the longer the flight... the longer the "flight," the deader the caveman.

Sam Nielson said...

Really funny idea and post. I also think the composition complements his expression perfectly.

p.s. It takes less time to delete unwanted automated comments than it does for me to type in that dang code. Especially for me, since you're the one doing the deleting.

I told you in real life how I feel about this one so I'm not telling you that I like his face or back hair here because I already told you.

very cool design, I like how close his eyes are together, gives him personality.

KEVSU said...

The bird is a great touch. It looks as if it would offer a few tips if the caveman asked. It's so easy, a caveman could do it.
