I'll Miss Dave Stevens

Dave Stevens, creator of the Rocketeer and pin-up artist extraordinare, has passed away at the too-soon age of 52.

Dave was an amazing artist in the classic pulp tradition with the kind of craftsmanship you just don't see enough of these days. He'll be greatly missed.

More links and kind words over at DRAWN!, the illustration blog.

And let me also say for the record, the the film adaptation of The Rocketeer is criminally underrated. I'm watching it again first chance I get.
