Aviation artists Bob Thompson and John Hume, recently had their artwork accepted for representation on the Aviation Art Hangar website, one of the premier aviation art websites in the world (aviationarthangar.com). The site represents some 65 artists whose work covers aircraft from the birth of aviation to the modern aircraft of our day—private, commercial and military. The site sells art prints and originals and includes artists’ bios and their portfolios.
Robert has lived in Alaska since 1967. His love for art and aviation, like his love of Alaska has been a part of him since childhood. He earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Arizona State University in 1984 and has been involved in the arts ever since. His subjects include private aircraft and Alaska bush planes as well as commercial airliners. His work is included in private collections, as well as in commercial collections.

His subjects range from early Alaskan bush pilots to heavy metal propliners to high-tech F-22 Raptors. Clients include aviation museums, private, commercial and military pilots, Air Force units and aerospace corporations across the United States and the Pacific Rim.
