Cops and Hookers Poster


Yet another fine rendering I found on some web-site.

I love the way the unknown artist has positioned the

LIFE magazine


Back in 1914, Malevitch declared his “black Square’ was the full stop in Art. The same can be said for LIFE’s covers: the purity of their aesthetic has never been beaten. Their influence cannot be more heavily stressed – just look at the early covers for ZFK programmes.


Modern Mechanix Cover

A beautifully-rendered retro artwork for the cover of Modern Mechanix. Despite the development of computer-aided graphic design in contemporary media, there’s no denying the power created by this painted image. I love it – it’s so cute!
