Reproduction "Gotham Electric" Jet Engine Advert

A reproduction of a vintage General Electric advert; created in Adobe Illustrator.

I used a lot of the pen tool, feathering, grain, and gaussian blur effects to recreate this iconic ad.

If you hunt for this on google and Pinterest you'll notice there are actually two versions of this poster; one has a lot more detail on the jets, clouds, and terrain. I opted to reproduce the more stylized version.

The work reminds me a lot of Joseph Binder’s style, but I have not been able to determine the artist on the original. Anyway, here is my faithful recreation.
