PS 703 (June 2011), the Sixtieth Anniversary Edition of the U.S. Army’s internationally acclaimed, ground-breaking and pace-setting leader in communicating motivational and technical information, is off the presses and on the streets.
It’s a powerful product.
Joe Kubert has done a magnificent job. He pulled out all the stops, used every tool in the shed, and did himself, as well as all the other PS artists who preceded him, proud.
The wraparound Front and Back Covers are shown above.
We then present, below, a string of thirteen double-page spreads and one singleton.
In the first one, IFC-1, you’ll even find thumbnail head-sketches of Joe, his right-hand man Pete Carlsson, and moi.
Starting with the wraparounds, a close examination of the above selections from PS 703 will reveal whimsy, humor, technical precision, depth, movement, spaciousness, amazing eye-flow, duotones, functional color, and an unobtrusive yet ever-present awareness of the task at hand.
It’s a pleasure to be associated with Joe in the presentation of this Blog Salute. He’s a gentleman, a true creative genius, and a wonder to work with!
