I came across the work of Brighton based illustrator, Allan Sanders
recently and just love his retro style. He describes it as being, "concerned with simple 'everyman' characters as they try to take on the world".
Allan's illustrations are packed full of detail and a sense of fun. They mix quirky typography and sophisticated illustrations which create that happy, nostalgic feel.
Although as a Lancashire lass myself I think I need to have words about this one - what are you trying to say Allan??
You can see more of Allan's great work over on Loopland, his lovely website
, on his blog
or on Flickr
