fifties style illustration

Actually I think Jonas Bergstrand works in just about every style the fifties had to offer (which I mean as a compliment). I do believe it's copycatting, but I also believe that almost every illustrator (including myself) steals his way trough the rich traditions of the past. The art is doing it in such a way that is the result is self-evident and in a way where the image works for itself rather than being a style pastiche. I can't say that goes for all his work, but the good work does that. And well.
