Description
Submission for Threadless, I couldn't help myself when I saw the Vintage themed competition. The piece is based on vintage typefaces and ephemera designs. I took the lyrics from a Billy Joel song "The good old days weren't always good and tommorow is not as bad as it seems."

The Good Old Days
  • The Good Old Days
    Submission for Threadless
  • I couldn't help myself when I saw the challenge for Threadless loves Vintage. This submission is based on vintage typefaces and inspired from old Billheads and ephemera. I used a line from a Billy Joel song "The good old days weren't always good, and tomorrow is not as bad as it seems" to play on the idea of the over romanticized look of the days gone by.

    Digital Arts Magazine asked me to do a tutorial based on this piece for their October 2012 issue. Get a hold of one if it's available in your retailers, Thanks
