Artist of the week – Michael Lombardi

Hi all! I wanted to introduce you all to a wonderfully talented artist from Perth, Australia who is now based in Melbourne. Michael Lombardi has an amazing retro/vintage style that I adore. His work is unique and diverse and he captures situations beautifully as portraits, murals, logos and posters. Anyone who loves vintage style will appreciate his wonderful illustrations. From 1920s flapper gals and 50s astro-babes to 1960s G0-Go dancers, there is nothing he can’t bring to life with his quirky style.

His artwork is available online for purchase and he also does commissions, as you can see from the various swing dance logos, portraits, animation and murals he has done. If you would like to buy any of his work, please go to this link or his Etsy shop and if you would to commission him to do some work for you, you can contact him via his website at www.michaellombardi.com.au

Vintage Christmas and New Year Cards

Some of these are amazing and truly capture the Art Deco feel of the time. Others are just plain cute or caught my eye due to their catchy design and imagery.

A very vintage Christmas…

Another year has flown by and I have not posted as much as I would like. In 2015 I will have more time, so be prepared for vintage goodness again en masse. But for now, here are some of my favourite festive images from the 1930s.
