My Little Rocketeer kick.



Hey people,
So somehow I've managed to miss watching one of the coolest movies ever, and I'm not talking about The Land Before Time this time, yeah, it's The Rocketeer. I don't know how I missed this but I finally watched it and was on a Rocketeer kick for the last week. I found a place that makes the jacket, and I have labeled it my birthday present to me. Rockin.' So check out the gallery (Linewerk- Icons) for new Rocketeer pics and an Alphonse Elric (Full Metal Alchemist) piece. Cause I gotta get an anime portfolio going, and seriously, who doesn't love Al?
Also, I've been inspired to make a Back To The Future piece and have a percentage of the print sales donated to The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research. That man is possibly one of the greatest creatures on this planet. Fer real.

Anyway, after spending most of my holiday vacation from work being sick, I'm going to end it with bombing the crap out of my system with some Vitamin C. x.X Later guys!

  1. Yes, the Rocketeer was awesome. After all these years, my strongest memory was the romantic Begin the Beguine scene. Jennifer Connelly -- RAAR! jc

  2. Haha - How could you have missed that movie until now? It was a staple on pizza and movie night at our house! You have captured his essence very neatly - I love the expression of boyish wonderment in the face (even though the helmet would actually be expressionless). Great work Sara!

  3. I am going to set a Google alert for this movie. I've been reading about Disney's "The Rocketeer" for the past week as I've been doing research for the review I wrote for "The Rocketeer: The Complete Deluxe Edition", the collected issues of the original comic book. Dave Stevens, the writer and artist of the comic, "The Rocketeer", sold film rights to the movie back in the 1980s but it took about eight years for the movie to be made.

    Stevens died in 2008, the year before IDW published the complete collection of his comic.
