An Illustration Developed Using two Different Techniques
This is an illustration concept developed for a tutorial in my Concept Illustration course. The subject is Gail Halvorsen, a noted American airman who became famous for dropping candy from American bombers in the years right after WWII. Later known as the "Candy Bomber," Halvorsen got the idea from children he encountered across Africa and Europe. They always asked American servicemen for candy and thus a great idea was born. A monument was built in Germany to commemorate his efforts. He quietly launched his plan for dropping candy packs with parachutes during cargo missions in Germany in 1947 and became an overnight celebrity.
