Inspiration: Mid century designers
Love the little flecky lines and amoebish bodies. (Similar to Alexander Girard)
Love how simply the bridge is represented
It almost looks like it was torn out of paper
Love the very simple ink bottle contrasted with the elaborate stamp
(Rand was all about contrast)
I'm working on a book cover tonight. Am trying to keep it very minimal. When warming up I often go through some my favourites for inspiration. They include many mid century graphic designers: Paul Rand, Alvin Lustig, Alex Steinweiss and Olle Eksell.
