ideas tossed around for some more concept art. this time boss man wanted something to capture the flavor of a screen play he's currently working on based on the life and times of ormer locklear.

uh, who?

locklear was a stunt flyer during and after WWI. during his time in service, pilots would sometimes have to 'wing walk' to perform repairs on their air craft. 

pretty hair raising stuff, no? 

anyhoo, locklear carried this practice on into the movie industry when he became a stunt man and performed all sorts of crazy ariel shenanigans for the camera. unfortunately, this proved to be the death of him.  during filming, the lighting crew didn't pull a light off him in time, causing the momentarily blinded pilot to crash.
