Military Aviation Museum

Military Aviation Museum This is one of the more unique projects I’ve ever gotten to try. The city of Virginia Beach has an active charitable organization called “A Dolphin’s Promise”. They ask a business or individual to contribute to cancer research by buying a dolphin and working closely with an artist to decorate and display it. The Military Aviation Museum wanted more than just a paint job, they wanted a full-blown swimming flyer. I spent far more time than I should have between the planning, painting, rebuilding, and fiberglass work, but it was just too much fun. Nicknamed “Flipp-air”, this piece is part dolphin-part WWII Corsair fighter plane and became one of the proudest moments of my artistic career; if for no other reason than its success and popularity with my partners in the project. We did something cool and did some good in the process..
