    I’m no luddite, but seeing these emphasizes how much we graphic designers and illustrators lose by working in an all-digital medium. Look at the flora in these illustrations – just look at those lucious, broad brushstrokes. Then look at the man-made elements – rigid, hard, man-made! So awesome. Thanks for posting, this is a great find.

    The book “A-frame” also definitely has great illustration in it. These illustrations make want to illustrate as well. Mine aren’t quite this mid-century looking though.
