For many, Nose Art is perhaps one of the most interesting aviation-related phenomena which emerged from the World War II era. Please join in with the Military Aviation Museum as celebrated artist and designer Chad Hill of Django Studios walks us through the process of creating a piece of modern Nose Art, while exploring the historical significance underpinning each brush stroke. Hill started his artistic career at an early age thanks to his parents. His mother taught him how to draw, while his father and uncles instilled a love for hot rods, tractors, and WWII airplanes in his young heart. Hill has been an artist for the past 27 years, and at Django Studios he specializes in Automotive and Aviation Design, and Marketing Branding. Over the years, Hill has also performed work to add period-correct nose art to restored World War II aircraft. His illustration work is on show at a variety of aviation museums and air shows, and even at the Smithsonian’s National Air & Space Museum.
Please do to take a look at his wonderful portfolio of work here.
