Thanks Nick Veronico for the awesome hi rez photos from the boneyard. I didn't actually recall that I did this once twice until seeing the pix! Might want to pass this along to Les Pete Rabyk

Check out their great book Boneyard Nose Art if you haven't down so already. Available on amazon and elsewhere. I'm honored to have several pieces feature in it as well as on the cover!

Recent crew chief retiree Pete Rabyk was given this awesome parting gift by the rest of his crew and co workers. Its the pattern I used to execute his nose art on 0358 surrounded by other paraphernalia in a super nice frame. Not a small item! Super cool! Thanks for letting me share Pete!

Ok fb keeps telling me people haven't heard from me in a while. No nose art gigs for a while....but I decided to woodgrain one of my spare hardhats (gonna be woodgraining for about one to two months starting next week!). And yes yes I know...it's not kosher with osha or at least with the hard hat manufacturers. (Pretty much all of them say not to paint or put stickers on them...ever been to a jobsite? Lol)

Heading to southeast Kansas for about three weeks for "other" artistic type work. Of course I've got my airbrushes with me so it me up if you need any nose art. Have airbrush...will travel!

Some great color pix of B-24 nose art in the video. Some of them are pretty good...probably from around the time some of the movie studios or Disney or warner bros were sending artists to paint nose art.

Take a walk on the tarmac at an Eighth Air Force B-24 Liberator bomber base in World War II. There's an immediacy, a familiarity, with color photography that...

Took this pic at the air park at SAFB where 3691 is on permanent display. One of my favorite nose arts that I've done. This airframe was was actually the very first Nose art I ever painted. At that time I was adorned with "United in Memory" artwork shortly after 911.

60 years ago, the #KC135 Stratotanker was born. Thanks to Total Force #Airmen, it still proves to be an asset to the U.S. and it’s coalition partners with global reach and global power. #Airpower!

Forgot about this one. This one didn't even make it to the bone yard. Some green horn literally blasted it with a pressure washer within a day or two of being painted. He was later booted out for a host of other boneheaded actions.
This one chronicles some of the planes that flew out of SAFB.

Ok this photo mockup is sort of a bucket list thing for me. Lol. I had a step van about 20 years ago. Wasn't doing nose art then, but I always visualized a sort of nose art looking logo on the side of it. Well I finally designed a kick ass logo, now I want a step van again!!!!!
