"Fly with U.S." poster

here's a poster that i did for j.s. lewis, author of the grey griffins series of books. a while back, i created this pinup for inclusion in his forthcoming sketchbook, "the mysterious journal of j.s. lewis". shorty thereafter, he asked me to create a WWII style propaganda poster featuring a squadron of jetpack-fitted U.S. infantrymen.

here's the cool part: copies of this poster will be available for purchase from j.s. at the 2009 san diego comicon! he'll be at the komikwerks booth (#2648, right near marvel and boom!)...stop by and pick one up!

It's also similar to the WPA posters put out during the depression and the decade following it. Very Cool Poster. I love the uniformity of all of the people in space and I especially love the type choice.
