History on a Shirt
Art Print of 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, inspired by a WWII pilot training manual, almost makes the sound of a P-40 Warhawk visible as the P-40 powers up out of the military feel of an olive background, directly in front of the viewer. Behind the aircraft, a stripe of brick red lists it as simply "P-40" and identifies the union of the Curtiss aircraft company with the Wright engine that made this aircraft one of the best fighters of the WWII era.
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.
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.
