So, I’m not an artist by any means but from time to time I do enjoy sketching ideas out for my books.  This is a drawing that I did earlier this month.  It’s an idea I had for an airship, really, *really* rough!  My husband thinks it’s far too colorful in terms of the hot air balloons.  I was inspired by the early hot air balloons flown during the Victorian era and earlier.  Our local Science Center has an exhibit on the history of flight including a model of the one by the Montgolfier Bros from 1786.
