Go North

Looking back on the 50s and 60s, ads told a story to sell the product through text and illustration. Plenty of the ad stories and illustrations were irreverent to what the product actually did, rather more like fairy tales than ads and at times not even showing the product itself. In this image I wanted to make a tongue-in-cheek ad for an AARP article, illustrated as a dreamy fairy tale inspired by those ads as well as the work of Lisbeth Zwerger.

I'm irrepressible when reminiscing about the good old days. Er, wait, that's not right.
