Couple of reasons I chose this guy to draw this week, the main being that I've just gotten my hands on the phenomonal new 'Rocketeer: The Complete Collection' from the boys over at IDW. It's a stunning book collecting all of the beautifully illustrated strips by the late, great Dave Stevens. Amazing tales of pulpy goodness featuring dollops of derring-do, gorgeous dames and nefarious Commie-Nazis. Here's a link to IDW Editor-in-Chief, Chris 'I'll sleep when I'm dead' Ryall's blog where he gives a great and thorough lowdown on the book: clicky.
Reason the second:
Dec's just joined a second art collective, the Comic Twarts(don't ask). These guys are horribly-talented feckers, and the stuff they post is of a uniformly high standard. This past week, the Twart guys all tackled a Rocketeer piece, check 'em out here.
I wanted to try my hand at a piece featuring this guy, since Dec basically said that these Twart boyos were all far better artists than us Micks(don't have to tell it like it is, Dec), and it riled my blood and got me feeling all competitive-like.
