Sometimes it’s hard to believe there was a time when the Adobe Creative Suite didn’t exist. Prior to the late 1980s, if you were creating an advertisement or illustration for a magazine, cover art for a video game cartridge, a movie poster or a book cover, you did it the way it’s been done since […]
Greetings popcorn nerds, Jetpack Jason here. This is a first installment of a series of Golden Age Sci-Fi Cinema Reviews. Today, I’m reviewing “The Flying Saucer”, released in 1950 and produced by Colonial Productions. For the time being, I’m going to be focusing on the venerable alien come to Earth genre. These films typically take place […]
Jilluminati is my modern tribute to the classic ‘horror host’. A horror host pinup is something I’ve been wanting to create for a while. I’m working on a comic book concept with her, as a late night tv host. Behind her, painted on the walls are two generations of sexy horror hosts, Vampira and Elvira. […]
My Star Trek pinup titled, “Am I In Your Chair, Captain?” This illustration was created entirely in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. You can find a time-lapse video of its creation here.

My latest pinup. It’s been a while since I’ve put my nose to the grind and really worked on my art. I’m enthusiastic about this one though, and I believe it will help me to get back on task. I love video arcades, and Galaga is one of my all time favorite games. It seemed […]
A few years ago, inspired by my favorite theme restaurant, the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater at Disney Studios, Florida, I decided to make my own intermission mix video. It feature 1950s and 1960s sci-fi trailers, snack bar advertisements and technology newsreel footage. It was always my intention to make more of these and put together a […]
Here is another Christmas catalog mashup, aided by, Wishbookweb.com. This time, I’m exploring the wonders of my own childhood. The Sears Wishbook arrived in September every year, and I can distinctly recall spending hours flipping through the toy section, craving. These images are some of the things I wanted most in the mid 1980s. Speaking […]
