New Art… finally

Hey everyone. Sorry it have been so long since I have posted an update. I have been feverishly working on some new art and several commissions. Currently I am working one three different 747’s all for a client at UPS. We have completed a 747-400CF a 747-400 BCF and we are currently working on a new 747-800CF. We completed a Mooney for a client and have just finished a Pitts S-1 for the same client. We are doing a repaint on an SR-22 for another customer as well as a few more commissions. We also have added a few more art pieces of some existing caricatures. as well as a special car caricature for a local landmark here in So Cal. I also  added a new caricature with character. This time a FJ Fury. I plan on doing several versions of this caricatures in several different media. I have completed the standard digital coloring version. I am trying to finish up a graphite version and have planned out a color pencil version.

I have added a new P-51 Racer from the early days of Reno. Race 9, a chocolate brownand white trimmed racer. Race 9 Adams

I also addded my first Jet Class racer, the 2016 National Champion winner, American Spirit, an Aero L-39 Albatross

 

 

I will try and post the images as soon as I can and I hope to make these updated a more regular occurrence.

Calendars have been ordered

The first ever Blackheart Art caricature calendars have been ordered. We ordered a limited number of wall calendars and Desk Top Calendars to gauge the interest. If we sell these out then the plan will be to do another one next year or two next year in larger numbers. The wall calendars are made with heavy card stock with glossy image pages. So order now and when they arrive we will process your order. Remember these are limited.

Sport Class racers

Here are a couple of RV-8 Sport Class racers from this years Reno Air Races. I think the Sport Class will be the class (with F1 a close second) that will keep Air Racing going well into the future. The warbirds that everyone loves are just to rare these days and to costly to race regularly. I still love the unlimited class but time is the enemy of the big iron.

Christmas Ornaments

Last year we offered a round clear Christmas ornament with small caricature image inside. The image is two sided and can have either Happy Holidays or Merry Christmas on the image. We have a small amount available. $10 plus shipping. Just email us to order your favorite caricature, to hang on your tree this year. The Voodoo/ Strega ornament is for those with allegiance to both teams… or you live in a house divided.  BHAVoodooorn1Sunsetorn

Calendar anyone??

Hey everyone, Hope your Thanksgiving was just as great as mine. Well I have decided to try making a calendar. here is a sample and it will be up to you if we go forward with it. This is a sample to gauge interest. The more people are interested and want to order will determine the final cost. The more I can order the lower the cost will be. So let me know what you think and if you would like one. We have a regular size wall calendar and a desk top version. BHA

Corsair Caricature with Character

Every now and then I add a bit of character to my caricatures. In this case I had a possible client ask about doing a Corsair with more character. This was the result. While the customer like the art work it was not what he was looking for, This has sat on the back burner for some time now. I happen to share it on FB and it seemed to get a lot of likes so here it is the Angry Corsair. If there is enough interest i will see about adding more of these to the collection.

More Air Racers

While putting the finishing touches on a few new caricature commission, I put together a few new racers from this years Reno Air Races. First is a Formula 1 racer i had been working on for awhile. Pooder, a Cassut III, race 20. I really like the paint scheme for this little racer.

Pooder

Next up is another on the diminutive Unlimited field from this years Reno Air races. Race 12, The Rebel. I also have a regular proportioned side profile coming very soon. Just need to work on the name on the nose and small details.

The Rebel 2016

And finally the first in a series I hope to put together called the Podium series. It will all depend on how much time I can squeeze in between commissions and other projects. Here is the first Podium… the Unlimiteds from 2016 Reno Air Races. Voodoo took the gold, Czech Mate, took second, and Dreadnought took third. Next up most likely will be T-6 class. I already have the third place finisher ( winner from last year) Midnight Miss, so just need to modify any slight changes in sponsor markings. Last night worked on the winner, Baron’s Revenge. (If anyone has pictures of the right side it would be very helpful.)So I will only need one more. Someone asked for Formula 1 and I will have to do two completely new caricatures to  get that podium complete, the winner and third place aircraft. So look for the next one in the series soon.
