Space Boy Doodling

Here are a couple of little doodlings for a space boy character I've been working on. Good to get back to basics with the old pen and ink. Have been doing a fair bit of this sort of stuff of late.

Fit of Enthusiasm!

In the last couple of years I have managed to get myself quite excited by 1950 and 60s poster artists so here are a few images gathered together for your delectation and delight!

Most of them are French. Favourite artists include Herve Morvan, Jean Colin, Bernard Villemot and Lefor Openo.

You'll probably be familiar with some of their work already. Villemot did a lot of those very famous Orangina adds and Herve Morvan did the illustrations for Banania which is I think the French equivalent of Nesquick. I would really like to do a bit more research on this lot, one day hopefully I'll get the time. These few images here are by Herve Morvan and they are really just a taster - this is definitely a topic I'll be returning to.

Ok, so this is my first post so I'm really just going to try a few thing out and see how it works.
Like how to add an image....aha done it I think. Anyone who knows me will recognise the cat (called Fleur) from my on-going Owls of Destiny project.But more of that latter...This blog is really going to be about small things that excite me with the odd reference to things that are happening in my life (currently very little!)
