History on a Shirt

Curtiss-Wright P-40 Warhawk


This print is adapted from artwork for a t-shirt designed for the Glenn H. Curtiss Museum in upstate New York. The design was inspired by a WWII pilot training manual. Out of nowhere, a P-40 Warhawk with its red shark's mouth suddenly appears in front of the viewer against an olive background. Behind the aircraft, a stripe of brick red identifies it as simply "P-40" and holds the logo illustrating the Curtiss aircraft company's association with the Wright engine. 

See our blog post imagining flight in a P-40 simulator for more on the characteristics of the P-40 and what a good pilot could do with it.

Print details:
The artwork is by Ewan Tallentire. The image is professionally printed on 8.5"x11" art cardstock that can be trimmed as desired so the image will fit a standard 8"x10" frame. Note that the digital image shown was saved at a low resolution to deter thieves; the actual print details are very sharp. Ready to ship in 3 business days; ships flat with cardboard backing.
