Photographer Alex Prager has a unique style that harkens back to a time when the right fit, cigarette or hairstyle could make just about anyone look famous so long as the camera captured them at just the right moment in an act of authentic cool.

Brighton based illustrator Jamie Cullen has an interesting mish mash of influences represented in his imagery including references to pop culture but with a throwback 70′s sensibility created out of undeniable modern vector art.

I have to admit that I am a gushing fan of Sci-Fi illustrator Dan McPharlin. Everything he puts his fingers too just turns into pure magic. He has updated his Flickrfolio recently with new album art for various bands that was completed in his trademark 70′s throwback style and all of it is just beautiful. Dan is the man.

Jiro Bevis is an illustrator who knows who he is and how to work comfortably within an accessible signature style that is a twinge 7os psychedelic retro and a load of fun brimming over with distinct personality.

I could try to explain Alex Varanese’s recent project myself but being that he is such an uncompromisingly honest person, it’s probably better to just let him tell you himself:

“This project is undoubtedly my most conceptually ambitious work to date. It comprises 14 full-sized, 18×24″ prints that explore the awesomely absurd idea of time travelers who return to the late 1970′s to release the technology of 2010 and dominate the world of consumer electronics. I re-imagined four modern products as if they existed over 30 years ago and tried to bring them to life through fake print ads, abstract glamour shots, and even a characteristically pretentious type treatment or two.”

Totally awesome.

Photographer Alexandra Valenti captures a feeling from a bygone era with washed out images, naked babies, hippy garb and rainbow tints that take you back to an era about music, love and drugs. Ahh the good old days. It’s not too late to bring them back no?

Steve Scott is the London-based illustrator responsible for that kick ass throwback Birdy Nam Nam that circulated the blogosphere and airwaves a few months back.

Wow, I seriously defy you to just try and find something more awesomely gratifying than Ben Pearce’s Flickr sets. Hours of pure enjoyment. His Retro set is classic.

You will need an account however, due to a little 70′s style nudity. A little retro nudity never hurt anyone.
