Black Widow

Hey everyone we finally added some art. When I first started doing these caricatures I was using color pencil and then moved on to water color and then airbrushing before going to computer art. One of the first aircraft I did was the P-61 Black Widow, one of my favorite aircraft of WWII. Well I finally revisited the old caricature and updated it using the same techniques I have been using for the last several years. “Lady in the Dark{, one of the most famous Widows and an OD and Gray P-61, “Nocturnal Nemesis” from the 421st NFS, Check them out in the Fighter/Propeller section.

Also new is a civilian version of the DC-9 caricature I did a few years ago. In fact I have added 4 different paint schemes. Two for KLM, one TWA and a northwest Air version. Besides the DC-9 I recently finished a commission for a past client the Cargo B777 in Kallitta Air colors.

Finally I added a new F-100 commission.

Neptune’s Trident

Merry Christmas everyone. Hope you all had a great holiday. First up today is a new caricature the Lockheed P2V Neptune. This caricature has been one I have wanted to do for many years. May dad served with VP-1 and worked on the Neptune. He even flew a few patrols while VP-1 was deployed to Okinawa. So I finally finished my first P2V caricature. The put together a special print with pictures of my dad while he was in the Navy. So this is one of those special prints. Coming soon for a client will be a follow up P2V this time a P2V-7. He wants to honor his father as well. So look for it soon. Just need to finish small details and it will be ready.

Next up today is another commission. This one we completed several months ago and was a Christmas present for the clients husband. Another RV-8 painted like a F4U Corsair in the US Navy Tri blue scheme. Follow up picture shows proud RV=8 owner standing next to his aircraft print in hand. Thanks again and glad he liked the print. A side note the client found us becasue of the sponsor logo we had on Sam Swifts biplane Hot Stuff at this years Reno air races. So much thanks again the Swift racing.

That about does it for new art we have completed, but there is lots of new stuff coming soon. (new 777-300F, P-61 Black Widow, new racers especially sport class, and a few much more.)

Happy Holidays BH

Voodoo Speed record Prints

Hello all

As stated in an earlier post I updated my  Voodoo Caricature with the new Speed record scheme and the Reno Scheme. Now I have put together a print to honor both the Red Baron flown by Steve Hinton to world record in 1979 and his son Steve Hinton Jr who flew Voodoo this year to a new world record. You can find both in the Air Racers section. BH
