Kevin Dart’s Looks that Kill

Looks that Kill is the latest installment in the Yuki 7 book series created by one of our contemporary illustration favorites, Kevin Dart. In this new adventure book written by story artist Elizabeth Ito, we get the opportunity to tag along with Yuki 7 and the Gadget Girls, her special task force of ladies, on one of their missions, immersing us in their thrilling world of seduction, espionage, and glamour. Accompanying the fantastic story are new and energetic illustrations by Kevin and 14 other talented artists, such as Meg Hunt and Matthew Lyons. This book is definitely one worth adding to your collection!

BONUS: Bundled with the book is a brand new DVD featuring the short films of Yuki 7. Directed by Kevin Dart and Stephen Coedel, this supplement makes Yuki 7′s world come alive, and includes behind the scenes processes and other exclusive features. See the video below for a little taste:

If you happen to be in or around the Los Angeles area this weekend, be sure to stop by the official book launch party and gallery show at Q Pop gallery in Little Tokyo. Be one of the first folks to purchase a copy of the book, meet the artists, and have fun! More information may be found on the official Yuki 7 site.

Some more great imagery and typography for inspiration here. Completely has the feel of a 1970′s female James Bond story. This kind of retro style illustration could really work well in modern web design. It’s nice to see some typography drawn on an angle for a change – not everything has to be strictly grid based.

thank you for the wonderful designs.. I would be coming back to get a little inspirations as i found some of them to be very cool! especially the ‘first class fireworks’

Envious. That is all.
