KEVIN DART: YUKI 7 RETURNS

KEVIN DART: YUKI 7 RETURNS
Illustrator/Designer Kevin Dart has created a special universe around his character Yuki 7 and her ensemble of Tokyo HQ cohorts, The Gadget Girls.
By using the form of retro movie posters, Kevin creates a world that promisses swingin' Spy Vibe action. Like a B-movie mogul, he ignites our imaginations simply through the advertising. His images are rich in spy conventions and suggest plot and thrills (I'd jump at a chance to write a Yuki 7 screenplay!). Last year we saw the publication of Seductive Espionage and Kevin joined us on Spy Vibe for an interview about Yuki 7 and his fave spies. Kevin has continued to develop Yuki 7 projects and his website sports a cool Looks That Kill poster along with a time-elapse of his illustration process. Dart hints that there's a second Yuki 7 book in the works, as well as a new short animation!
