Ward Jenkins is cool!

March 12, 2010

Rachel and I really dig Portland-based artist/illustrator Ward Jenkins (aka Wardomatic). I stumbled upon his stuff while trolling the flickr-sphere for “mid-century” illustrations. He’s posted a bunch of interesting pictures from old children’s books and started a flickr group called Retro Kid. As it turns out, his eye for old pictures isn’t the half of it. Here’s an illustration he posted today – created for the Desktop Wallpaper Project sponsored the design-blog Kitsune Noir:

We recently bought a print from his b-boy series from his Wardomatic Shop on etsy for a friend’s birthday. Very fine indeed!
