The TBF Avenger has been always one of Matthew's favorite aircraft. When he was doing the above TBF Avenger illustration, Matthew found our website and was deeply moved by Loyce Deen's story. He decided to do his Avenger illustration with Loycee Deen's plane. With Gregg Mastriforte's support (the creator of Loyce Deen Tribute page http://www.loyceedeen.org), Matthew was able to get in touch with Mr. Michael Cosgrove's (son of Lt. Robert Cosgrove who was the pilot of Deen's TBF); and also with Berth's (niece of Loyce Deen), and got their support for using photos of the crew on his artwork.
Besides this TBF artwork, Matthew also has a P-51D Mustang (with George Preddy's Cripes A' Mighty marking), and the work in progress of a P-38J (with Richard Bong's marking). If you would like to purchase or see more of his work visit him on facebook.
