Mid Century Modern. Print. Illustration. Design. 1950s.

I'm exploring 1950s design at the moment and a lot of fun it is too. As I said before I'm going to have prints made for sale [somewhere, maybe Etsy].

Mid Century Modern. Pattern. Illustration. Design. 1950s.

A variation on semi-circles and squares. I intend to create prints of this sort of work and start an Etsy store. I'll keep you posted!

Mid Century Modern. Pattern. Design. 1950s.

Mid Century Modern decor was inspiration for this piece. I'm enjoying this series of work at the moment, I have to get back to the animation soon, but as always a new inspiration has come along. The Populuxe era had it all, style for its' own sake and wild and eventually mis-placed optimism for the future. More to come in this vein in the next weeks....

Sputnik. 1957. Mid Century Modern. Illustration

1957 and the world got smaller. Sputnik raised tension between East and West and started the space race. Mid Century Modern design and art took inspiration from this event and so have I.
A Cold War in the vacuum of space.
