Farewell gift for CO (Commanding Officer)

Air force colonel engineering unit sitting on a jet fighter engine that he maintains and inmprove. Singapore army cartoon by caricature artist. Farewell gift to commanding officer. Well wishes for new postings to another squadron in the military service. flypass, F16, hangar, runway.

We rushed this order over the weekend for a squadron of the RSAF. Its a farewell gift for a CO and the initial idea was to draw him in the cockpit of F15 D+ jet fighter. His unit ensures that this particular type of plane is in tip top condition and I suppose he must have been a good leader that all his merry men wanted a caricature drawn with him on this occassion. It is an interesting challenge and I do not wish to portray a normal ‘Top gun’ theme that would be inaccurate for an engineer. Based on the descriptions of his occupation and implements they used, I envisioned a cowboy, so I drew a caricature of him riding the jet engine holding a drill gun wearing a safety helmet with a radioactive sign. They thought I’d draw him in a cockpit of a F-15 D+ and did not expect this but they all loved it in the end and sent us a nice thank you note which made the sacrificed weekend worth.
