"Retro Fest" is a piece inspired by mid-century style. It's a celebration of hot rods, tiki, pin-striping, pin-up, and 1950s era counterculture.
This image was originally designed to be featured, and sold, at the "Cheesecake" Pinup art Gala at "Retro Fest" in Lancaster, Pa. Much of the proceeds of which were donated to Excentia, a group dedicated to "Empowering People with Developmental needs."
Now you can have a copy of this homage to rockabilly style for your home!

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Hello, I’m Deanna. Creating little worlds is all I want to do.
I spend my days in my illustration studio, surrounded by herbs and antique curiosities, in rural Pennsylvania. I enjoy many interesting adventures with my husband, daughter, and Shmoop, the “Office Cat.”
Since I was a young child, I’ve been creating. Some of my earliest memories are of drawing historic clothing, making fairy tale paper dolls, and designing my own “book covers.”
The work I make is influenced heavily by my affinity for historic eras: Color palettes, patterns, textures, architecture, typography – the list goes on. From Medieval to Mid-Century, I love it all.
My preferred method of working is to begin with a traditional sketch in pencil on paper, and then to colorize the image digitally. It’s a two-step process that allows for flexibility and speed, without sacrificing quality. I’m also quite adept at drawing and painting in miniature.
