Wounded Knee 2073: AIM-bot by Deepblu742
Wounded Knee 2073: AIM-bot
Strange idea I've had for integrating future machine/mech into native american culture. Not 100% sure of the message/style yet...stay tuned.

Dogfighter Series: Dauntless by Deepblu742
Dogfighter Series: Dauntless
Inspired by the story of Stanley W. "Swede" Vejtasa, WW2 American Navy pilot of an SBD Dauntless dive bomber that was on a patrol during the Battle of the Coral Sea. His flight was jumped by 12 Japanese Zeros & in the ensuing fight many of his squadron mates where shot down.

Realizing his plane was a 100mph slower than the heavily armed Zeros and his rear-gunner being outclassed with his twin 30 caliber guns versus the Zeros' dual 7.7mm & 20mm canon, he countered the Japanese pilots "racetrack" runs on him by pulling tighter heavy G turns than the Zeros could to constantly face his attackers head-on so he could bring his own twin front mounted 50 cals to bear. He managed to down three Zeros, even surviving a head-on kamikaze attempt which damaged his wing!

Evidently the "Swede" was recognized for this incredible feat by being transferred to a Wildcat fighter squadron and went on to shoot down 7 more enemy aircraft making a bomb/torpedo run on the U.S.S. Enterprise, quite possibly saving this famous carrier from oblivion. He earned 3 Navy Crosses during the war, the only one to earn them for both dive bombing and aerial combat.

So I had to make an dog-faced illustration to commemorate this badass dogfighter!

Norcal-Surf
Old sketch, stylized depiction of walking the long overcast beaches of North Cali. The smells of salt & seaweed, cold dark water, the distant calls of seals and gulls.

Woke up to some good news for a change, after a 352 million mile journey, the 2.5 billion (USD) Mars Science Laboratory successfully touched down its 1 ton rover, dubbed Curiosity, late last night. What an impressive achievement for NASA and JPL, this is definitely a great kudos and booster shot in the ass for the budget starved space exploration program. Seems the planned downsizing of the program is akin to a "going out of business" sale, a casualty of the increasing deficit looming over the country.

But I'm really stoked this worked, the sky crane and retrorocket landing seemed like science fiction...now if everything checks out green on the rover's systems/instruments we'll get some interesting data and pics. Ooh-rah for science n' astronautics!!
