Retro Robotic Renderings
Michael Murdock Replicates Vintage Invention Illustrations

These Michael Murdock illustrations looks like a geeky scientist’s book of inventions from the 1950s.

Created by Murdock from Sabor Design Studios, these great, retro-looking designs depict pages of lost inventions with extreme concepts such as Atomic freeze blasting ray guns, robots, rocket ships and R2D2-like machines.

Along with each illustration is a detailed note section about the design’s use and function. Murdock’s worn out yellowish brown paper portrays a vintage look, with blotchy black smudges that only enhance the old school feel.

Michael Murdock creates crafty mid-century depictions through his passion for drawing and sketching, specializing in illustrations, design, motion graphics and art prints. His use of pencil sketch and dark contours projects the free-drawing feel that make the art work look like a skilled doodle, as if from a dedicated artist sketching away.
