That Sneaky Marine is me!

You can read the full story at bleedingonion.com... titled ‘Sneaky Marine’!

I painted those pictures in the camouflaged (with a few others that liked what I was doing) during the first gulf war in Saudi Arabia. Why? I was bored. Those pics were taken at the Port of Al-Jubayal. Although I do not think you can see it in the pictures, there is one helicopter that has a silhouette of me holding up fingers in the peace sign. The top photo was the first helicopter I painted. I started on the head and breast, everybody else joined in. I painted the middle finger on the bottom of a helicopter. Others have Elvis, and a rooster (crew-chief's nick name was Rooster).

I have the pictures and my journal in storage to prove it!

And feel free to contact me.

Haha I have pictures of that as well from years back. I must say though sneaky marine that was a killer job. I function in the day to day world as a graphic designer and an artist so seeing someone messing with that type of paint jobs etc made my day. Really any special paint sheme on aircraft is artwork to me hence the tiger painted CF-188 in my avater.

Just wanted to say kudos for a great job!

I have added three others pitures about this with me and the paint crew from December 1990. You can see them here: www.bleedingonion.com

No photoshop. No anti-Muslim. No macho propaganda. Just me, a smart-a$$ed Marine having some fun.
