One of my oldest friends had just gotten his first paying gig as a commercial pilot after spending a few years in the cockpit, so he needed a business card that reflected his new career. I started by creating a simple line drawing of a 1974 Cessna 150 Aerobat, his first plane and the one he learned to fly in. He and I both hail from the densely-wooded Pacific Northwest, so I threw in a warm green background. My goal was to project a sense of permanence and transience; to show that even when our work takes us all over the country (or the world), our origin story still exists within us.
