I’ve been a fan of The Rocketeer for quite some time after being reintroduced to the franchise by my pal Dave Howlett. The movie is fantastic and the comics are even better. But I can remember when seeing that amazing Rocketeer poster kicking around the theater back in the early 90s, and I always loved it. So here it is, along with a bunch of other work by the artist, John Mattos.
My jaw hit the floor when I discovered this stuff. Such smooth vectors and beautiful color palettes inspired my art deco and vintage travel posters. I would really like to get a glimpse into John’s creative process, where he starts and what references he draws upon.
You can check out John’s Behance account for more of his excellent illustration work.
