Artist's Personal, Painted Leather Jacket Available NOW!
This is my own, painted jacket I developed personally with "Tex" Hill. We worked hand in hand to develop the concept and design. This beautiful, antiqued jacket has a copy of his signature on the front. I am the only leather jacket artist legally authorized to reproduce his signature on the jackets I paint. Here is a personal, cherished note to me from "Tex" before he passed away on October 11, 2007.
I've been associated with a lot of aviation artists in my time who have painted the P-40B, Tomahawk, "White 48" that I flew while I was in the American Volunteer Group/Flying Tigers, but you are the first to paint it on the reverse of a flight jacket! I can't tell you how pleased I was with your rendition of my airplane. It's the best thing that I've seen done on any flight jacket. I'll wholeheartedly recommend your work to any of my fellow Fighter Aces and other pilots I know. It was a real pleasure working with you Bob.
