THE ROCKETEER by Mitch Gerads

As i'm sure everyone will do, and because he deserves it always, a huge thanks to the creator of the Rocketeer: Dave Stevens. It takes quite a powerful and imaginative mind to create a character in the 80's that everyone truly believes has been around for generations.

With that being said, another thanks to Steve Bryant for picking Mr. Secord. On my short lost of books to work on, the Rocketeer is top 5 at least.

I look forward to hearing what you all think and can't wait to see more from my fellow TWartists!

How the flip did you get the camera so close to that propeller? Man, I opened my G-Reader this morning and was amazed by this layout. I had to really stare at it... there's a lot going on here. Amazing work, Mitch. What a cool shot. The shadow on the ground... nice (smart) touch. Thanks for giving a damn about that kind of thing.

Mitch Gerads said...
