Elements of the past can be seen behind many of today's successes: the new Camaros and Mustangs have vintage '60s lines, Mad Men oozes mod stylings, and Auburn's recent sports glory proves they intently watched the SMU 30 for 30. For a designer finding gold with mid-century style, look up MontyGog's Art-O-Rama
From a 'burbs-based drawer with a Kevin Smith-level love of pop culture, MontyGog's a collection of prints done in the style of 1950s cartoons, with exaggerated characters drawn in basic abstract shapes and flat colors, focused on later pop culture icons and cult-classic movies, but not classic cult movies, cause there's nothing funny about All Dogs Go To Heaven's Gate. On the cinematic front, there's a pair of Shaun & Ed portraits from Shaun of the Dead, a print detailing the highlights from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory including the purple fat chick, and a poster giving the rundown of Weird Science titled "Actually Making A Girl", whose ownership unfortunately won't help you in your quest to Actually Make Out With A Girl. Childhood-recalling offerings include a chevron-chested pump-equipped dude buying pre-killed baddies in "Dig Dug Balloons", paired portraits of Transformers, He-Man, and Thundercats toys, and "Cobra...the enemy!", a montage of G.I.
