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.

VMFA-121 Green Knight's Bombin' Betty

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

Tiltrotors get logos… and posters!   Leave a comment

A friend working for the V-22 Osprey Public Affairs Office informed me that there were no emblems for the individual services’ aircraft, so I created a couple, along with posters to cheer the associated Marines and Airmen on.  Go get ’em you guys (and gals)!

These are available for squadrons or PAOs working with either aircraft (the posters can be customized with your squadron emblem) for official use.  I’ll try to work on getting some stickers with the logos available in the shop

Hamburg sign   Leave a comment

Actually, just a piece of wood cut to shape and painted to look like an old German road sign.  It was inspired by a real-life German sign that a USAF family was graciously given by their German friends when stationed there (theirs is WAY cooler than this one).

Hamburg is very far away...

Hamburg is very far away from North Carolina...

I created it to commemorate the fantastic 6 months our wonderful exchange student from that city spent with us.  We miss you Lenia!
