Travelers often have time to catch up on their reading... especially if there are unexpected delays.

This started out as a "speed painting" but it took far too long in the end...

I'm pretty sure that was an influence - the guy with the sun umbrella :)

Agree - first impression is "hey, that's a crashed spaceship", and then you see the umbrella, and then you go "aaahhhh..... Riddic!"

There's something about putting up an umbrella that says "Well, I guess rescue isn't coming any time soon. Might as well try and get comfortable". I liked that bit in Pitch Black - although I think it has an older tradition. I'm pretty sure it was in "Flight of the Phoenix" (about an airplane crashed in the Sahara) Pitch Black brought it to Sci-Fi :D

I love the humor in this piece. You cracked me up. Stiff upper lip in the most unexpected of situations, of course!

He might have completely cracked :D

Or... there are some things living in the sand, things of an unsavory nature...

Is that the one where Burgess Meredith breaks his glasses at the end? I always loved the Twilight Zone :)
