Inspiration: Aircraft Nose Art

On this Friday I’d like to share a little source of inspiration: Aircraft Nose Art.

It’s rude ‘n crude and 100 types of awesome. It’s sort of an old school form of mobile graffiti that developed from a practical way of identifying friendly units and spread to becoming a rad way of customising a plane. The designs were brash and full of bravado and offered a sort of psychological protective symbol against death whilst giving the two finger salute to military regulations.

Enjoy!
