Vol de Nuit

This illustration, by Belgian François Schuiten, left me all agog yesterday when I stumbled upon it.  I love how it teeters betweens everyones dream of flying and the nightmare of falling endlessly.  Although Schuiten is of our time, his work is so Art Deco, especially with the feel of how they imagined the future.  I'm absolutely in love and can't wait to find out more about him.

Sensational picture. It suggests so much. I wonder what his other work is like - I too will try and find out more.

He must have a vivid imagination to produce such a dramatic painting. Thanks for the introduction to his work.
