Classic and vintage aesthetics are two major themes in the works of illustrator Matthew Lyons. In these illustrations, Lyons depicts the future with a retro perspective.

Intriguing contrasts of the past and future are evident, as there are smartphones, tablets and eco-friendly technology present, all incorporated in a 1960s-style art.

If you take a look at the furniture and fashion, there’s a vintage look to it: the long-strapped purses, hipster-like fashion, squared sofas and retro dressers are prominent. The characters in these illustrations look somewhat robotic, which fits perfectly with the futuristic theme.

Matthew Lyons depicts a retro style in his art, which is interesting when paired with futuristic subjects. The earth-like hues also contribute to the vintage look.
