Bombin’ Betty Revisited   Leave a comment

This Getz Girl Pin-Up artwork honors those linked to the famous US Marine Corps VMFA-121 All Weather fighter squadron.  It was inspired by the squadron’s original WWII-era pin-up, which has graced patches, aircraft tail surfaces, etc. (see image below).

The Getz Girl version of ‘Bombin’ Betty’ was developed with input from Green Knight officers and Wives’ Club Members.  The new, unofficial artwork presents an updated, easier to reproduce look for a symbol which has inspired squadron members for over half a century.

It was a great honor to work on this, thanks to all the Green Knights and loved ones who contributed feedback.
