I’m on a retro kick again. I used to collect recipe booklets and brochures from the 50′s and 60′s. A lot of them were illustrated with these simple, blocky collages and when I started on this one, I noticed it was in that style, so I kept going with it.
If I was a professor of design, advertising, and/or illustration, my first project would be to imagine the most useless, disgusting, or just plain ridiculous product, then present it in a way that makes it appealing. 50′s commercial art really does that for me. If ads were still in this style, I’d probably be smoking two packs a day, washed down with rum and Coca-Cola. And woven sisal fibers!
