Today we added a few new caricatures. Two custom commissions, a C-130H with MAFFs firefighting gear, and a Cessna 182. We also added a new air racer, Ed Weiner’s, Bardahl Miss from 1968 Reno Air Races. This is one of my favorite racers, and I even did a regular profile back when I was air brushing some art. I hope to do a couple other versions of his pylon racer, the early bronze color and the wild tiger strip version. I might add those two to my regular side profiles. Reno is just a few months away so I hope to get out a few more racers.
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.
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.
Last year we offered a round Christmas ornaments with your choice of caricatures inside. We are doing the same again this year. check out the examples below. ornaments are $10 plus shipping. You can pick which two images from our collection of caricatures you would like inside and whether you would like them plain, with just the aircraft, or with “Happy Holidays or “Merry Christmas”.
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.
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.
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. BHA
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
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.
Here is one of the recent commissions I have been working on, a Luscombe painted in a wonderful copper color. The same customer also ordered a second Luscombe so look for that one soon. Here is the Penny. Thanks Charlie.
