Philip Castle Airflow

Another sample from the portfolio of retro airbrush master Philip Castle. Judging by the livery of the jet in the top right,  I’m guessing the image is a promotional piece for the “Blue Angels” that’s the US equivalent of the Uk’s “Red Arrows” – basically fighter jets performing formation acrobatic stunts.

I’ve borrowed this scan from a more extensive library of his work at: http://www.images2k6.com/supercoll/pcastle1.htm The original art is scanned from Philips Castle’s 1980 anthology “Airflow”.

    Wow, I really love this piece. I think it is the “retro” feel that it has.

    Nice find! :)

    Cheers Russel,

    I had seen his Clockwork Orange work before, but thanks for reminding, should do another post for Philip… BTW I think he did the Full Metal Jacket ‘Helmet’ for Kubrick too

    I need to get in touch with Castle. Anyone know how? I will be in the UK in September – but last I knew he was in California. Just opened a gallery and would like to feature his work in an upcoming show. (813)294-2730. I have several pieces I bought when my last gallery was open.
