F-104 ... "the missile with a man in it!" - my illustration work

... another of the pieces I created for a promotional video of my commercial illustration work. The Lockheed F-104 'Starfighter'. One of designer Kelly Johnson's brainchildren. Often criticized as being dangerous to fly. It very successfully achieved it's design parameters: climb very quickly and go very fast. The most desired attributes when you want to shoot down Soviet bombers.

Somewhere underneath all of that digital paint is a photo of a gaudily painted 'gate-guard'.  wiki
