Loving the band name Fan Death and brainstorming with Mathew Lippincott and Stevie Lewis of Public Lab, I now want to start a band called The Safety Coffins. Mathew suggested the above image as an album cover, via Retronaut.
I first read about safety coffins in Michael Crichton’s The Great Train Robbery, but Wikipedia has a nice article with more pictures: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Safety_coffin. TL;DR if you’re buried alive, there’s a bell you can ring to be let out. And food and stuff.
We also thought OSHA should publish guidelines for workplace safety for the dead. But do ghosts need handrails and HEPA filters?

I’ve doodled a lot of aircraft carrier carriers but I don’t believe this is real.
How many ships could a ship shipping ship ship if a ship shipping ship could ship ships?
But they can’t. I don’t believe it. Help.
It’s a start… needs finer lines and I also just need to get more practice with this style, esp. the white on black stuff.
