The other day, browsing through Flickr, I stumbled upon the photostream of Junkyard Dogs. While all the work isn't credited to be his, he does have a really nice collection of all things vintage and retro-futuristic; old computer ads, movie posters, book covers, etc. Pure gold.
I've been pretty overwhelmed about space lately. Our culture really loves to visualize and imagine space exploration, life out there, and it's something that really gets stuck in your mind and it has to be expressed in someway at some point. This post is my way of saying: the space rocks, get inspired by it like I am.
So I went searching for cool space inspired artworks to share with you, and I think I've managed to assemble a good set of cool pieces for you. From photography, to retro space art, here you'll find some sweet art!
Last week we posted a tutorial showing how to create simple artwork in Illustrator and then in Photoshop we added a few effects to make it look old and with that vintage/hipster feel. Some people asked about some of the steps in Photoshop so I decided to make a simple walkthrough about how to use Photoshop to create this kind of effect. It's a simple technique but it can be very handy for this kind of artwork.
So in this tutorial I will show you how to create a simple vintage look stencil in Photoshop.
