Columbus Day

Today is the anniversary of Christopher Columbus’ arrival in the new world.
While there are many opinions of Columbus in history today, there is still ample reason to recognize his courage, persistence, and unshakable convictions as well as his legacy as an explorer.
In celebrating Columbus Day in America, we honor how incredibly brave it was, for a man of the XV Century, to climb aboard a very small caravel and sail into the great unknown.
Above is the first page of a story on Christopher Columbus I drew back in 1990. The story was supposed to be published two years later, (1992) to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the discovery of America.
