I RECENTLY BEGAN sketching during long-haul flights. It helps distract me when I feel anxious, and usually I’m pretty drunk during takeoff, so the things I produce in my journal are hilarious. But they can’t compare to the drawings of Christoph Niemann, who 100% captures what goes on in the minds of every single person who has ever flown from the East Coast of the USA, to Europe and beyond.

My favorite part is the progression of the seat back monitor. Spot on.
