Christian Dieppedalle's aeronautic
Christian Dieppedalle honors
the allied airmen who fought for the freedom of France and Europe by
producing astounding aeronautic illustrations of allied bombers and
fighters that fought in the skies of Europe during World War II.
Each illustration is the result of typically one or two hundred
hours of work.
The first step is historical
research: he tries to get as much information as he can about the
aircraft and the mission by looking into the military archives and
contacting the airmen and their families. He uses computer graphic
software such as Illustrator or Photoshop to create his artworks and
he makes sure each every minute detail (including color, serial
number and weather conditions) of the illustration conforms to
These amazing pieces of arts are now exhibited in city Halls across France,
in museums, memorials or in the homes of war veterans and those who honor
them in France, the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, the
Netherlands, Germany and Poland. Christian Dieppedalle’s goal is to honor
these men and ensure they are not forgotten by the younger generation. We
should always remember that we owe them our freedom.
