“Emergency Blow” by Nate Ostrow. Mr. Ostrow is a Department of Defense Technical Illustrator with extensive experience creating artwork for the Submarine Force and other DoD organizations. His work can be found in the wardrooms and other spaces aboard more than 25 Navy and Coast Guard ships, as well as in the Pentagon, SUBLANT and SUBPAC headquarters, the Bowfin Museum, the Naval Submarine League, and elsewhere. The artist visited the World Trade Center Restricted Zone with the U.S. Coast Guard Atlantic Strike Team in November 2001 and recently joined the U.S. Coast Guard Art Program. He has also worked as a concept artist for General Dynamics Electric Boat and Marinette Marine Corp.

“Emergency Blow” is a recent addition to his portfolio, illustrating a familiar training evolution often performed by U.S. submarines.
