Aircraft Bomber Art & Pin-up Painting
Love for airplanes and the iconic bomber art came from dad. During WWII, my father; “Long” Bill “Speedy” Knoderer, illustrated flight manuals for the Air Force. The fad of airmen decorating their aircraft began at that time. Clearly the universal touchstone of beauty is the female form. Subtle silhouettes combined with other classic elements stir the imagination. A frenzy of appreciation is achieved with successfully combining carefully rendered seductive facial expressions and the commanding poses that yank at the heart of the red blooded. The level of ability of any artist is clearly evident as the result of perusing the hand painted rendering of the Pin-Up girl, perhaps the ultimate personal expression to distinguish your aircraft from the rest.
The genre of the variety of painted design spans the decades with recognizable styles that punctuate and refer to the richness of each era. Artists and painters push the envelope of stunning exterior paint utilizing many facets of the striping, gilding, sign painting, engraving and illustration trades.
While creating airbrushed murals on motor homes, many air force veterans commissioned special paintings depicting various aircraft that lead to yet other special pin-up paintings and original art on restored and contemporary aircraft shown at Sun n Fun and Oshkosh air shows.
The ability of the artist to travel to various aircraft repaint jobsites facilitates the ability to create these stunning images.
