Missing Shiny

Philip Castle, Farrah Fawcett

Lately, I'm missing shiny. After two decades of adhering to the flat world, I've begun to admire the shiny stuff.
For years, clients asked for shiny and sparkly type in three dimensions on every motion design project. Of course, we didn't do that. We took the opposite point of view, focusing on the simple forms and lack of ostentation. So, why now, am I drawn to airbrush illustration of the 1970s and 80s? Everything in these images is so clean. Even skin is glossy because it's so pure. -- Burning Settlers Cabin: Putting the Gloss onto Glossy
