In June 2010, my boyfriend Joe decided to repaint his airplane and asked that I create a unique design and color scheme. I came up with what I thought was a striking design but it took some convincing to get unartistic Joe to envision it. Of course, when the paint job was completed in July 2010, he was absolutely delighted with my work.
Apparently Joe is not alone because in April 2012, someone else copied my design, probably from the file of the same aircraft painter, and it became the cover poster for Falcon Insurance Company.
Obviously, Falcon knows good design work when they see it! Does this mean I can add aircraft paint designer to my resume?
