discovered: retro racing car print

7 Jun

American Racing Drivers Club poster by ModernPop, Etsy, $28

I’m a sucker for mid-century-inspired illustration (see my “become a collector” post here).  And ModernPop really fits the bill.  The illustrator behind ModernPop describes her work as “art prints for children,” but I think many of these prints would be great for adults too.  The poster above is “inspired by the colors and forms of vintage race car design from the 40’s & 50’s using a color palette of mustard yellow, forest green, and steel blue.”

The prints are 11″ x 14″ and printed on watercolor paper.  If you have room, I’d recommend pairing it, side-by-side, with the above image, featuring vintage aircraft.

"F+D" for Fionn Daley

ModernPop also has a collection of 8″ x 8″ alphabet-inspired prints – why not select your child’s initials and create a set?

Check out the shop here.  There are just so many great images – robots, birds, letters, science terms – it’s hard to pick a favorite.  I could design a whole room around these color palettes and images.
