Inspiration from Mucha

By July 23, 2008 2 Comments

I’m working on an image for “As You Like It” and hoping to channel Alphonse Mucha on this one. One of my favorite illustrators from the early part of the last century and a fixture in our household growing up (his work, that is), our family has had a long connection to this artist. At one point in the ’20’s or ’30’s my great-grandmother was a kind of patron to Mucha and ever since his presence and work has been around me.
Pretty girls and flowers. Always seems to work. But beyond that there is so much style in the work, so much motion and design and great typography. Stay tuned. Let’s see what happens!
