My final project for my first Digital Imaging class, this one was to create 5 panels with a solid concept. I was able to find a book that had clipart from the 30s, 40s and 50s (and had a name along those lines) along with a book on how to construct a bomb shelter, a book on rockets, and other text on the history of NASA, J.C.Penny, Ford/GM/Chrysler/Packard/Willys (the American domestic car manufacturers at the time) and the military industrial complex. Printed with a Canon archival pigment printer. All of the large type was drawn by hand by me, then scanned into the computer and live traced in Adobe Illustrator to create more of a grungy look.
