My jaunty retro line illustrations of vintage objects in decorative frames, digitally printed in Fall colors (salmon, peacock, burgundy) on bright white 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 tufted armchair, a salt shaker in the shape of a pink flamingo, a pair of beer glasses that I think were a gas station premium, and an Atomic-Era alarm clock. Please see the photos for more details.
I drew a funny, frilly picture frame around each 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. It's part of a set of four different designs in Winter Spring Summer and Fall colors.
