I saw a thread on here a while back where folks were talking about the world's fair poster from The Rocketeer and it got me interested in reproducing the image in vector form so that I could get myself a high resolution poster made.

I finally started the project today, this is my progress so far in Adobe Illustrator.

I've still got a ways to go, but I think it's a good start for today. The fonts for "Rocketing into the future" and "New York world's fair" are not quite right yet.

Here's a good example of the NYWF lettering.

Was out of town and unable to work on this for a few days, but now I'm back to work.

Little bit of progress today. Mostly tweaked the colors a bit and started blocking out the third flying guy. Got a few more big details to block out and then I'll start going over each object in the scene and adding fine details.

I was working on this but work has slowed due to my job. Glad to see someone is able to jump on it and get it rolling! :thumbsup

Hi there,
I just joined to pursue this fabulous poster from the 1939 NYC World's Fair! The last post I see is from March of 2016. Did the recreated poster ever come to printing?
