My dad was an artist when I was little. I started to play tennis and we needed more money to pay for my lessons and travels. So my dad quit what he loved doing to make more money for the family. He used to draw these little people and make oil and watercolor paintings. He had exhibitions in London and Berlin before he gave it all up for me. Now it's my turn to revive his passion and collaborate on the new pin series we decided to call Asilda World. The series will feature little people of various professions, similar to the work of Irving Penn who photographed people of various professions in Paris, New York, and London.
Pilots deserve so much respect for taking on this profession. It must be an exhilarating and lonely profession, dangerous and patriotic. Our little pilot is more old school, but it's amazing to think that so much lies in the hands of one or two people.
