Inspiration Found : David Klein


This week I’m looking back instead of forward, with the illustrations of David Klein. Although his catalog is vast, he is probably best known for his work illustrating travel posters for TWA. I am so in love with his approach to color and detail, if I had discovered him as a teenager there’s no doubt that his art would have coverd every inch of my bedroom walls. It’s quite easy to imagine these motifs interpreted on a variety of surfaces, and I’m positive that his iconic style has influenced surface designers all over the globe. Below are a few of my favorites.
