Dave Stevens 1955-2003

Rocketeer creator and all around great artist and pulp aficionado Dave Stevens passed away today.

Goddamn shame, that is. My friend Derek and I were actually talking about the film on Friday and whether something like that could ever work (Short answer: no). But, at the same time, there's still an art litho of the Rocketeer movie promo poster still hanging in my room, and it's still one of my all time favorite movies.

I can think of no finer tribute to him than this following poster I made a while back, using art from another great artist taken from us too goddamn soon: Mike Wieringo.
