Paris-based artist Sebastien Cuypers recently put together a few designs and illustrations that will leave anyone with a fondness for the mid to late '80s salivating. The era of big boomboxes, ubiquitous spray-paint cans and funky sneakers just has so much to offer aesthetically.

Cuypers takes full advantage of this overflowing palette in the designs featured here. From T-shirt decals to print magazine editorials, the artist demonstrates a well-honed skill for funky, '80s-inspired illustrations.

Such illustrations are in popular demand these days. Walk into any H&M or similar store, shuffle through the T-shirts section, and you'll find many designs in a similar vein. However, not all of these decals are of the same quality of Cuypers's work, nor do they emote the same degree of nostalgia for their old-school muses.
