I've become an instant fan of UK Illustrator, Paul Thurlby. His alphabet prints are very reminiscent of vintage character illustrations which I love. I'm always intrigued as to how illustrators can recreate that look so well.

Another admired Illustrator, Fiona Hewitt has not only mastered Illustrator so well but her recreations of vintage Asian packaging design are truly amazing!
