‘Day Trippin’ was inspired by car and tourism ads showing the blissful motoring escape into beautiful scenery- just like the road to Fujairah! My favourite being this tourist ad for Greece. This poster has been my best seller, I guess a lot of us have fond memories of the booze run to Barracuda...

I love this old syphilis ad from Louisiana, between 1941 and 1943, for WPA War Services. The design is so bad it's good, so I just had to recreate something similar, for another public health warning - 'Ex-Pat Rage'. Terrible affliction when it strkes

Inspiration musings – JBR Beach

18 Feb 2016 09:27:25

JBR Beach was one of my first posters, inspired by one of my all time favourites - Roger Broder’s ‘Antibes’ for PLM shown below. Last summer I went to Antibes to visit a friend and to see if I could find any prints as this particular poster goes for thousands at auction. I could only find postcards, but had a very nice time in Juan Les Pins nevertheless, obviously all in the name of research.

Historic ads that inspired my work - a selection of my favourite glam destination posters that set the tone for 'Downtown Boulevard'

For 'Friday Brunch' I looked at old alcohol ads- a few here from the turn of the century that really celebrate booze fuelled wild abandon! Thanks to my buddies for posing for me..

'Life's a Cruise' hopefully feeling at home amongst some of my favourite ocean liner travel ads from that era.

Inspiration musings – JLT Lakes

30 Jan 2016 19:05:24

No guessing where I took my JLT Lakes type from! I love these Italian lakes ads - thought it quite amusing to highlight the beautiful JLT lakes... Thanks Maddy for posing for me at 6am (and sorry for sharing!) – I like to get something productive from an all night boozy session

For 'Suburban Dreams' I wanted to liken Dubai's suburban bliss to the American Dream ideal. A well tended grass front lawn became the ornament of idyllic american family homes after the civil war, and along with this came a plethora of ads for lawnmowers! I thought these ads really set the mood for the 'perfect' residential planning that is Springs, Meadows and Emirates Hills...

Inspiration musings – Golf

For 'Golf' I looked at the many vintage ads from the 1920's onwards (seen here situated in some of my favs) – I especially like Roger Broder's 'Lausaane' lithograph from 1936.
