Kevin Dart is a freelance illustrator based in Southern California and is the creator of Secret Agent Yuki-7; the star of one of his most recent projects – a series of retro looking spy movie posters.

“Yuki was the result of a lot of ideas that had been floating around my head for a long time.  When I got back from working in London last year I was thinking a lot about this concept of a jet-setting spy girl with impeccable taste in fashion.  I love 60’s spy films like Deadlier than the Male, Danger: Diabolik, and of course the James Bond movies.  So I wanted to create a fictional series of movies that, had they actually been made, would have been the greatest spy films ever made – filled with awesome chase scenes, amazing costumes and sets, and gorgeous ladies.” – Kevin Dart in an interview at grainedit.com

As if the above four posters weren’t cool and exotic enough – Kevin has also created four equivalent Japanese and French posters just for good measure:

To accompany the Yuki-7 posters, Kevin has also created a pseudo ‘behind the scenes’ book and an animated film trailer. Check them out in the following blog entries here.

All the Yuki-7 posters along with some of his older ones are available at his online store Fleet Street Scandal.

There are also some great interviews with Kevin that give a really good insight into his influences and creative process over at spyvibe and grainedit.
