Today's book shelf treasure is this vintage Mickey mouse comic- alot of students and illustrators that want to start making retro pieces or working on a mid century style often ask us how we do it. There's no quick answer we are extremely passionate about the era and the style and have been fashioned by mid century things since childhood. But my advice is always the same, first you should try and get hold of old things, the internet is great for reference up you need real paper you can hold and study and look and why it looks old and the techniques the artists used, my second piece of advice is grab everything from @retrosupply
you can afford.
We will try and start posting some more time lapse videos and tutorials about how we produce our work in the future. But until then get out there to your local secondhand stores and start collecting.
