I absolutely love mid-century design, and will buy pretty much any book for a bit of 50s illustration (continental cans, prime example). I’ve been wanting to bring more of this bold, graphic, 50′s look into my work but wasn’t sure how. I was playing around with negative space; painting just a lady’s head, arms and legs and came up with this image, which I’m really happy with with. I thought it looked rather fetching as a tote bag, which you can buy over on Society 6 (free shipping until Sunday!) There’s also a rather dapper chap who makes a nice cushion.
