The Summer Collection
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 funny, frilly picture frames around the objects, arranged vertically along three banners. My drawings are reminiscent of mid-century illustrations, with flat poster-like colors, and the design is a bit like an old ice cream parlor menu.
This is from a set of 4 different designs in Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall colors.
