Miles Thompson Makes 1950s-Inspired Artwork

Miles Thomson is a wild man—just look at his photos! The Californian artist knows his way around fun-loving illustrations which mix "elements of surf art, jazz iconography, cowboys and injuns, vagabonds and drunks, life and death—all that good stuff—in a lowbrow style that looks like a Hallmark card from the ‘50s." These are exactly the type of drawings that Donald Draper of the hip series 'Mad Men' would use for a magazine ad.

Max Thompson is also working on images of famed icons Al Capone, John Dillinger and Jesse James, so be sure to be on the lookout for those!
