Aviator Baseball T-Shirts
This is the Aviator Girl I illustrated back in 2011 for Abney Park’s Steampunk RPG. I added my signature digitally since back in that time I wasn’t very prone to signing my work. When drawing I called her “Abigail” or “Blue”, she is part of an Airship crew that launches those extra aviators. She is watching an another airship fly pass them in her free time.

The birth of the Lithographer rating (LI) in 1948 was due to the realization that the technology of the time had eliminated the need for several specialized professions. Specifically, the new rating combined the rating of Printer, two service ratings in the Printer rating (Lithographers and Offset Process) and the Specialist rating of Photographic Specialist. Similarly, the Lithographer rating’s disestablishment in 2006 was the direct result of the transformation of printing and publishing not only through digital computer technology, but also the emergence of multimedia as the predominant method of information dissemination. For many people, the word “lithograph” conjures quaint images of Currier and Ives prints, but that was a far cry from what Navy Lithographers were producing by the time the 21st century had gotten under way. Sailors serving in the Lithographer rating used both lithographic and digital processes for replication of graphic and print documentation, and were well-versed in the capabilities of desktop publishing. Although they operated offset presses, they also worked with digital-duplication equipment and high-speed copiers. On one hand, they could handle process camera operations, a technology that was first employed in the 1890s; on the other, they were intimately familiar with electronic pre-press and publishing systems. As part of a move to make the Navy’s rating system more reflective of real-life media operations, the Lithographer rating was merged along with Illustrator Draftsman (DM), Photographer’s Mate (PH), and Journalist (JO) into newly established rating of Mass Communication (MC) Specialist. Although the conversion of Sailors in these ratings to the MC rating was automatic, Navy Lithographers and others who preferred not to continue their careers in the Mass Communication Specialist rating were given the opportunity to request lateral conversion to a Career Reenlistment Object 1 or 2 rating for which they qualified.

F/A-18 Hornet is a twin-engine supersonic, all-weather carrier-capable multirole combat jet, designed as both a fighter and attack aircraft (hence the F/A designation). Designed by McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) and Northrop, the F/A-18 was derived from the latter's YF-17 in the 1970s for use by the United States Navy and Marine Corps. The Hornet is also used by the air forces of several other nations and, since 1986, by the U.S. Navy's Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels.

In the early 1960s, communist military strength and firepower in Vietnam increased. As a result, PACAF began a buildup in the area with the addition of troops and better arms and equipment. In response to what has become known as the Gulf of Tonkin incident in 1964, Tactical Air Command pilots and support personnel found themselves deployed from the CONUS to PACAF bases such as Da Nang Air Base and Phan Rang AB in South Vietnam. Bases in Thailand (Takhli RTAFB, Korat RTAFB) were also used by deployed TAC fighter squadrons
