while we were out

Missi and Brian took these sometime last year and I'm just getting around to posting them. 
So many good WWII graphics. I especially like seeing what art the soldiers chose to decorate their planes and jackets -- I think it gives a personality to them.
1. camo plane
2. patch
3. leather jacket detail
4. graphic on plane
5. stripes on a torpedo (I think that's what it is)
6. Might Mare plane art
7. graphic on plane

Japanese Boro

Although made up of different patchwork pieces, Japanese Boro still manages to have a cohesive feeling. I think that's what I like about it most.
