Weekend writing prompt: 9/20
This week's wwp is called: Robert McGinnis
McGinnis is a prolific mid-century illustrator who's most known for doing James Bond related pieces. The keyword for this weekend, isn't necessarily to choose a piece of artwork of Robert's and write about it; but to find a mid century illustration that speaks to you and write about it.
Here are some other artists to google for inspiration:
And Robert McGinnis, of course!
Clicking on each of these images links straight to an image search for the artist.
If digging through a particular artist's style isn't your thing, here are a couple pinterest boards with good collections of images:

http://www.pinterest.com/aitaidas/illustration/ (This one is also great!)
Roger Wilkerson is also the *king* of this stuff on tumblr.
I found these websites when I was searching for which piece to use to represent each artist:
Lastly, if you have a little extra $$ laying around, this book is one of my absolute favorites, and a definite must-have if this sort of art tickles your fancy.
I don't remember it being nearly this expensive, ack!
I could write a million LSoH posts on this stuff, because the complexity of America in a time where the art depicted is so...simple... it just astounds me.
Find a picture that really grabs you, and write about it!
Happy writing, & happy weekend~!
