I was shopping for a skin for my laptop on They have a new print shop that features different illustrators and I found this one. It's by Justin Skeesuck. I was really drawn to this one because I am very into fashion Illustration and I'm also into the classic glamor of the 1950s and 60s. I love the way he uses block coloring and the simplicity of this piece. His pieces are inspired by old matchbooks from the 50s and 60s. This is part of a 3 part series called the 1960s. He does a lot of other work including photography and graphic design work for companies but this is definitely my favorite piece of his.

  1. I'll definitely have to look into his work since I enjoy this piece! The shapes and blocks of color are really powerful and the curves contrast nicely with the edge. Of course, I love fashion illustration too so that's what initially drew me in, but I appreciate the boldness in such a feminine subject.
