In the Army Tent

Friends of Willie and Joe and other WWII living historians recently set up camp at Pearson Air Museum in the Fort Vancouver Historic Site. We made a brief visit and the family let me draw a little. I even had time and space to ask permission (though I did not get names, I'm so sorry, I've really got to work on that detail).

As you can see, this spread took two notebook pages, much bigger than my scanner and not quite a satisfactory stitch job either. Anyway, this one glows pretty well when I crack open the notebook itself.

This tent also did a particularly good job presenting women in the armed forces during WWII and the experience of displaced persons. Also there was some nifty bike restoration happening.
