    At the base of my post is a link to the cartoonist who painted the plane that is about all I can find out on him other that he did paint a lot of nose art during the war.

    I came across it was on Morotai in 1945.

    Possibly the 13th AF

    Looking at the B-25 Groups based on the island the 38th 42nd Bomber Groups pops up.

    As an aside, that is perhaps the best nose art that I've seen. Even that not on the nose.

    Found a book with the plane possibly it's left hand side? Maybe?

    Looks like it was with the 41ST bomb group.

    Well based off this picture the aircraft is with the 820TH bomb squadron you can just see the bottom of the black vertical stripe.
