Travis Louie, Vic "The Messenger" Jones, acrylic on board, 10 x 8"
Vis is an air mail messenger and well known "nice guyâ€. He was always being struck by lightning. At least a hundred times a day, flashes of light would shoot out of the sky and strike the town of Oxhoofville. The bolts of lightning would always find Vic, whether he was in midflight or having his favorite sandwich. It was a such a common occurrence that people wore rubber shoes and gloves when they knew they would be stopping by. Like clockwork, he never missed a delivery despite the lightning strikes which happened every 10 minutes from 8am to 6pm.
