Modern Ladies #1 - 'Old School' by poojipoo Modern Ladies #1 - 'Old School' by poojipoo
The first image in my “Modern Ladies” series, flashing the code any old school gamer should know…

I'm greatly inspired by vintage ads by artists J.C. Leyendecker and Norman Rockwell and the like, and wanted to play on that inspiration with a series of artwork portraying "modern day" women but in those classic styles. More to come soon!

Print available for this one!

This is awesome! I'm a gamer girl myself, but I was born with the Game Cube being my first ever console. I still have three of them that work in my house!

This is such a phenomenal piece.  The style incorporates modern and retro elements, and the colors are just sublime.  I was thinking doing a similar poster with the Konami code (and I was quite shocked by how the girl in the picture resembled me- right down to the hair and the glasses(!), what a coincidence!) but in a different style.  This was wonderfully inspiring!

Awesome foto! Saw it on TheGameStation's Facebook page, and just had to trace it back to the creator!

Oh, nifty! I didn't know it had been shared there! Thanks for letting me know. :) It's always fun to see what folks say about one's work outside the confines of deviantart, haha...

I thought of Leyendecker the first thing when I saw the thumbnail.
The reference to Leyendecker is obvious,especially her hair.
Nice!
