Yuki7 and the Art of Kevin Dart
I found this picture at Ted Mathot's blog and wanted to know more about the character it depicts: the stylish Yuki 7. Seems like a great Action Girl kind of character, eh? Well, Mathot says that she's the creation of Kevin Dart, an artist I've had in my sidebar (along with his studiomate Chris Turnham) for a while.
When I originally added Kevin and Chris' site to my bookmarks, all they had was an astoundingly excellent gallery of posters for fake movies like The Deadly Bikini Girls of Shark Island and Scubagirl. Now they have a blog and Dart's got a blog, and having discovered them, I'm still cleaning up bits of exploded brain from my keyboard. I could seriously spend the rest of my life making up stories based on Dart's posters and die a happy man.
I still don't know too much about Yuki 7 other than she's a '60s-style spy character from what Mathot calls "an upcoming book project." Whoever she is, I'm looking forward to reading more about her when Dart's book comes out.
