Peugeot Advert by Lyle462 Peugeot Advert by Lyle462
Rene Vincent (1879–1936) was a French illustrator who worked in an Art Deco style and became famous for his automotive poster designs. This is my version of one of his pieces from back in the day.

Nicely done indeed!

France was a hotbed of engineering excellence around the start of WW1 and into the 20s - they made great cars and aircraft too...

original one? I would rip apart half of my room to make a perfect spot for it! :)

Btw... if you are a fan of poster art you might find this intresting
It's a collection of old, comunist, Polish (mostly) propaganda posters. If you skip all the brain wash stuff included on those, they are often very nicely done from artistic point of view.

link to collection:

my favourites:

[link] (the sign is "Moonshine Cause Blindness")

[link] (the sign is "don't load to high", less political propaganda, more health and safety ;p)

enjoy! :)

Excellent links...thank you! Oh yeah, I pay no attention to the brain washing. It's great for the art content and good in the historical sense. You know the old saying "Those who don't learn from history are bound to repeat it." We have to remember this sort of thing so we do not repeat.

Glad you like them :) Maybe you will find some inspiration in some of these ;)
And if you have any questions about signs on the poster than feel free to ask.
