Happy Fourth of July to all my customers, friends family and fans. Hope you have a great holiday and enjoy a bit of American BBQ and fun.
Okay for this Fourth OI put together a really cool print with the Blue Angles and Thunderbirds combining to salute to the good old USA. Prints are 12×17 and we can also do prints on Metal in various sizes. judging by the 20×30 sunset print I had done on metal this one will look awesome.
Next up, while I as at it this weekend I I added another Air Racer, this time from the early days of Reno and air racing in the 1960’s The P-51K “Little One” racer by Lyle Shelton. Yes the same Lyle Shelton that flew the Bear to so many Championships. The was his first taste of Air Racing. He flew this Mustang owned by Richard Vartanian. Later this racer would become “Tonopah Miss” and carried race 12, in the 64 and 65 Reno Air Races.
Okay there you have it the newest caricatures. Have a great Fourth!
Well I hope you all had a great holiday, New Year and Superbowl. I must apologize of my lack of posts and production. The “day job” tends to kick my butt from time to time. That is no excuse just a fact. Fear not I am still working on new stuff and trying to finish up some custom work. (A-7, C-17 F/A-18 etc) I just finished two prints of the same aircraft for a customer who at first wanted the caricature of his warbird, then his wife told him he needed the regular profile to go with it. So we created a completely new art work that was regular proportions. I have to say it was a bit of a struggle as I have been doing the caricatures for so long, the new piece just looked strange. All long and thin. Anyway I think it turned out pretty good. Both art works are of the P-51D Shangrila that was flown by Dominic S. Gentile after he finished his tour with the 4th Fighter Group in England. When he returned to the states he was given a brand new P-51D so he could tour the states on a bond tour. The markings are for the 4th FG and used the same code as his P-51B Shangri-la. We will be doing a few more of the regular profiles (next up Wee Willie from Planes of Fame) and if your interested we can do a custom Mustang for you as well. Just drop us a line.
I also worked up a couple of new F-4 Phantoms, both USMC birds. This time adding some backgrounds.
Okay that about wraps it up for right now. I have a few more plus some images for the first air show of the season, the 2016 Cable Air Show and car show. Dreary day with threatening rain clouds, but some fun stuff to be seen.
