This week's Illustration Friday topic is "Jump" and I decided to use a great American true crime story to illustrate it. D.B. Cooper is the name of the guy who hijacked a flight for $200,000 then dove out of the plane with a parachute and disappeared into American pop culture. The reason this story always fascinated me was because it was that rare story where reality was a case that could have just as easily been an implausible movie plot.
Fun fact: Though he was initially thought to have not survived the jump from the plane, the FBI has kept the case open and the case file has grown to 60 volumes.
Thanks for checking out this fun sketch piece... Please check out my store for charity with all proceeds from sale of the original art, prints and posters there going to benefit Gavin Lawrey. He's a local 4 year old boy who's family is raising money to pay for medical costs including a Seizure Dog for Gavin. You can read about him and his fundraiser HERE
