Original Virginia-class illustration now available as framed and unframed prints
Celebrating submariners and naval tech
These art prints, based on the original Virginia-class submarine illustration that first appeared in the U.S. Navy’s All Hands magazine, commemorate submariners and naval technology. The illustration made its debut as a specially commissioned work exploring the crew and capabilities of the most advanced submarine in the world. Now, for the first time, you can order a print of your own in two sizes, 24″x18″ or 36″x24″. Order them framed in classic matte black or unframed.
Informative and beautiful, these prints make a statement at home, in an office, or anywhere. The matte, museum-quality prints are on durable, archival paper. They’re perfect for current and former Virginia-class crew, their friends and families, and navy buffs. Click a button below to purchase the print of your choice.
As the first of the new Virginia-class (SSN-774) submarines sailed into action, All Hands magazine introduced the vessels in its issue celebrating of 100 years of submariners’ service. I was honored to illustrate the sub for the issue’s center spread.
Later I created a customized version of the All Hands illustration for the USS North Carolina, which was installed on that sub after its commissioning. The work was also adapted for an exhibit at the Battleship North Carolina Museum in Wilmington.
The original illustration has now been reproduced many times in magazines and newspapers. In the years since this piece of art was first published, crew members, their families, and friends, as well as submarine enthusiasts have asked if personal prints were available. Now, finally, they are.
