My piece for the 2013 edition of the Monsters and Dames charity art book, available only at Emerald City Comicon next spring! I’m a sucker for WWI-era military propaganda posters, aviatrix history, and dragons, so combining them seemed like a fine idea.
My notion was that some of the most useful dragons for warfare would be small and maneuverable, a bit like the biplanes that dropped small bombs and engaged in aerial dogfights in WWI. Pilots of a smaller and lighter build than your average Red Baron would be needed to maximize how far and long such a dragon could fly, and so who better to pilot that kind of dragon than ladies? I ASK YOU.
Haven’t been able to stop thinking about this picture since I first saw it last night, so I had to share.
