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.
We post about new digital artists and designers most of the time, we also post about different styles and how designers and artists try to bring references from the past and adapt for the needs of the present. Last week I read that the Mad Men crew got magazine illustrating guru Brian Sanders, a 75-year-old artist now living in Cambridge, England—to illustrate the iconic poster.
Back in the days, business cars were called trade cards and businessman of those days would distribute to clients and potential customers just like we do now. The design on this cards is the only thing that actually changed over the year. Check out how amazing was the design on these.
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!
