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.
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.
