Mars art: Silhouette portrait of John Carter by ... Rockwell Kent?

Thanks to Jeff Doten of the website Barsoomia, I found this beautiful piece of Mars art depicting John Carter that kind of looks like an Art Deco painting or print created in the early 20th century by American artist Rockwell Kent. Actually, this mock pulp magazine cover was done recently by Pixar artist William Erik Evans. He "designed it to look like an old pulp magazine cover that John Burroughs [son of author Edgar Rice Burroughs] would actually write for."
