Hello, My name is Joseph Mayernik and I’m the Illustrator and creator of the book Draw the Plane.
As a creative director working in the advertising industry for over 20 years, I’ve made it a habit to keep my sketchbook always at my side. I’ve also been fortunate to travel all over the country, and in those travels I’ve boarded hundreds of planes; Seen my fair share of security lines, departures, arrivals, gate checks and delays. These flights boasted many smooth ascents and turbulent descents through the clouds, and it’s in these moments where I developed the habit to Draw The Plane.
Every time I’m on a plane I draw the perspective from where I sit.
I’ve collected these moments, and with your help, intend to arrange them into a premier hardbound collection. Each illustration will be reproduced close to original size, accompanied with a short recount of the flight. I’ve also partnered with the Make-a-Wish foundation of Western NY and will donate a portion of the book proceeds to help offset their airfare costs. Which is Make-a-Wish foundation’s biggest line item when granting wishes to children. This website will detail the travels of the Kickstarter campaign. Consider subscribing to the blog and never miss a post.
Please support me in this effort to bring this book to print.
It’s only with your help that the Draw The Plane book will ever get off the ground.
Thank you for you time and consideration.
