    Although I am a lurker for the most part I just wanted to thank JC and @Derg for creating this community. I have learned an immense amount over the past 10 years from JC, not to mention the entertainment value as well.

    btw, I passed my commercial ride today. Looking forward to CMEL and CFI. Thanks all!

    Well done.

    I'd suggest that if you wish to be a successful professional pilot, that you work on your "I'm a badarse, standing next to my airplane" pose.

    My suggestion for a place to start:

    That's a really nice drawing. Any idea on who the artist is?

    Yes, Wade Meyers. An outstanding artist and a good friend of mine.

    I have a custom painting by Wade of my F-15E from the Shock and Awe invasion (you can see him working on it there in his portrait):

    I hope to be that good someday. I just started my first painting in 2014, but got deployed to the sandbox before I finished it. It's stick figure art compared to Wade Meyers' stuff. I know I have a long way to go, but I learned a lot from that first one.

    Wade started as being inspired by the style of Keith Ferris, but like all good artists ran with the ball in his own direction. Plus, he's just a really neat dude to boot.

    IMHO, his use of descriptive geometry (he wrote a nice book on it...) makes for some very good accuracy in aviation subjects.
