The Collection: Summer
My jaunty retro line illustrations of vintage objects in decorative frames, digitally printed in summer colors (cherry red, blue raspberry, warm goldenrod) on bright white super heavy cardstock, 11x17".
I love vintage... and sketching it is less expensive than collecting.
For this poster I drew a mix of functional and decorative pieces seen in my travels: a classic horse's head sculpture, a vinyl and chrome kitchen chair, a lead crystal decanter, an atomic style alarm clock, and even the covered wagon lamp my grandparents had in their upstairs hallway that was my nightlight when I slept over.
I drew a funny, frilly picture frame around each little object, and arranged them vertically along three banners. My drawings are reminiscent of mid-century illustrations, with flat poster-like colors, and my design is a bit like an old ice cream parlor menu.
