– The Rocketeer –

The Rocketeer is a comic series written in 1982, and is a homage to pulp heroes in comics of the 1930-40’s.

The series is a bout a young pilot who finds an experimental Jet Pack created by Howard Hughes, and is set in 1930’s America. Dave Stevens gave the whole comic a very retro and deco feel to the artwork and design in the comic, and mimics the idealistic futurism apparent in that era.

I love the slick and linear design, and the futurism style. I think that this could be very helpful in designing characters or backgrounds for our animation – and could look quite bold on camera, which would be nice.

I also love the colouring and the chroma-colour/technicolor  effect it has.
