Jip & Janneke Make Up

Ok, this will be a short introduction to Dutch culture to all our foreign readers ūüėČ

The most popular Dutch childeren’s book of all time is “Jip en Janneke” (pronounce: yip &¬† jen-nu-ku; well, at least something like that). The books are written in the fifties by Annie M.G. Smidt and beautifully illustrated by Fiep Westendorp.

 

Above: Janneke (left) and Jip (right).

Why all this information? Dutch store Hema has introduced Jip & Janneke make up for grown-ups: lip gloss, bronzer, eye shadow and nail polish. I’m not a big fan of¬† the colours, but the package is brilliant!

The Art of Kevin Dart

Illustrator Kevin Dart has made some of the artwork for the current No Doubt summer tour. His art is really amazing, very girlie and sixties inspired.

A few months ago he was asked to do a poster for the¬†No Doubt tour.¬†They had come up with the theme “A Clockwork Orange” for their tour, and wanted to be portrayed in a 60’s suspense-movie poster based on the song “Spiderwebs”. Here’s what he came up with:

I think he has done a amazing job, I love it! These are some earlier rough sketches:

And he has done some other great art as well. Some examples:

Sixties Pin-Up Art by Robert McGinnis

I bet you’ve never heard of Robert McGinnis before, but I’m sure you know his work. He’s an American illustrator. His work can be seen on¬†paperback book covers, but he’s also done¬†movie poster, like Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Barbarella and¬†James Bond.

Every time¬†I see his¬†drawings I know I was born in the wrong decade.¬†The women¬†in his work are always incredible pretty, stylish, cool, classy and mysterious……(ok, and little bit trashy).
