You look colorful today

During the last year I’ve used many analogue cameras in my works, because I love them. The technique behind it is just mesmerizing, all radars, bolts, metal plates, and when you push a button in the end a wonderful picture comes out, how awesome is that? In this case I got inspired by a picture of a woman holding a Polaroid cam. The initial illustration had some references to Polaroid, but after contacting them they politely noted that they couldn’t give me permission to use this in a commercial work (even if for my own prints), which is understandable. So – as in many cases – I designed my own direct camera, an authentic ‘Itchi’, and model number ‘5’. The print is available in my shop, so be sure to give it a look!
