Nostalgic Illustrations By Hollis Brown Thornton
- Caroline Kurze
South Carolina-based artist and illustrator Hollis Brown Thornton creates drawings that depict now-obsolete technology of decades past, including cassette tapes, VCR tapes, floppy disks and old video games. Using permanent markers, which means that there is little margin for error, he creates nostalgia-inducing drawings of these defunct tech products, often stacked up and packed together to create mesmerizingly colorful compositions. We can still remember that the drawers in our childhood homes used to look a lot likes this. The striking illustrations are available as prints here.
