The first in a new folly into digital art, this retro futuristic poster was originally just a weekend project, however as time progressed it became a long term project.
Its a satirical take on the retro futurism of the 20th century with its various influences and themes.
The city scape and high rises are to show the grander of the period and hopes for becoming something great with theories that the space ship and blimp would still be in use in the future. Additionally the atom is to represent the drive for a science ‘miracle’ and the untapped world atomic energy could bring, but also a joke on an aspect often found in retro futuristic posters, that despite it not relating to the poster in anyway.

This is the second in my satirical take on retro futurism using similar themes from the first, however focusing on a more oceanic setting which relates to the modern crowd and games such as Bioshock.

One of my major interests is retro futurism, and art of the era, and I wanted to make a pattern which sort of holds the enthusiasm that was around at the time. I have made larger patterns, which I think look a lot better and have that real retro art deco poster feel to them, which are on my list of projects to stitch, but sadly I keep getting new patterns in my head and it gets pushed further and further back.
