Tanner Airlines Junior Flyer

July 1, 2013

Eric Tan‘s solo FLY show at Gallery1988¬†features 15 witty limited edition silkscreened travel posters. Cohesive to the theme, Eric transformed the gallery into the ‘Tanner Airlines Reservation Center’, complete with Tanner Airlines model airplane (by Eric) and junior flyer wings. He approached me a couple months ago with his wings design to see if I could turn it into pins. Lucky for me, he already had the design, size, pin back style, and metal preference in mind (an ideal client!). I fabricated the prototype and, voila, we then reproduced a collection of Tanner Airlines Junior Flyer wings!!! He announced that the first 30 people to purchase prints at the opening would receive their wings. True to their name, Eric’s prints and pins went flying out the door! It was such a fun project to work on and Eric is truly an amazing artist.

Wings are bronze with a magnetic pinback.

Thank you so much for all your amazing work on the wings Ape! They came out better than I could have ever imagined. I’m glad you got to come out to the show and see all the people in line who wanted their very own pair. It really added such a cool dimension to selling the idea that this was an actual airline company.
