I painted this illustration based on the book "Jonathan Livingston Seagull".
Jonathan finds more value in flying itself than in flying to eat. Even though he is treated as a heretic in a group of seagulls, he carries himself and ascends to a higher level.
In short, it is a story that supports people who live differently from others, just as in the human world.
Jane, a girl who admires "Jonathan Livingston Seagull," has just joined the Navy, and she tries to follow Jonathan's way of life. Can you see Jonathan's story in Jane's face expression?
