Wow I am really digging the retro-styling of Florida based illustrator or shall I say graphic illustrator Justin Mezzell. He’s got his thing dialed and it’s ringing my number.

Illustrator Kristian Hammerstad has an old school pulp comic style combined with a skater punk zombie aesthetic tipped off with a good dose of humor. It’s an extremely likeable combination of elements that comes together so seamlessly that you almost forget the skill and craft required to generate such fun imagery.

I am not sure if I have ever posted the work of illustrator Matthew Lyons before but he is something special. His unique 50′s-esque brand of image-making has sparked quite a following and he recently posted a new series of images simply entitled ‘Locations’. There is some really nice things happening in the recent set between muted color palettes and strong geometric shapes that would look quite stunning on any mid-century modern wall.
