Motorbirds Going Places

Here we go...

This here below are BTW the initially designs. As you can see the final design ended up quite different than originally planned. The first idea was to draw a rocketship for my producer friend Robert Chandler from Space Age Films. But then, I came up with a more corresponding rocket-idea (which I'll show another time) for Robert and changed the whole piece.
