  1. anticipating the dawning of a new era: the 1960s, with its aesthetics of psychedelic forms, patterns, and text.



    helvetica turns a little psychedelic, too.

i love your drawing style!

jett

the drawing itself is fantastic, but is designed around a counterculture that really didn't come to the forefront until 1964. there was certainly a bohemian counterculture before then, but the same could be said of the '40s and '50s. it started really gaining popularity in 1964 in response to the impending Vietnam war (the phrase "hippie", a variation on hipster, was supposedly coined in '64) and had exploded by 1967. i really hate to be such a fuss-ass... like i said, i LOVE the drawing, and if you were to draw something else in this style i'd totally 5 it.

it looks like a hippie version of me

thanks!

jett- i understand what you mean. i didn't intend for the design to show that culture literally change in 1960; rather, referencing the entirety of the 60s decade as it is looked back on.

Yoko? Neat design, regardless.

And yeah, the psychadelic era didn't really start until after JFK was killed.

Well, we can be picky about when the era came about, but most people relate stylistic changes to the decades - 50s, 60s, 70s, etc... So I'd leave it the way it is. I really really like it; your brain must be a wonderful machine, sonmi.

thanks lichkness :). that is what i intended, because i think it would be more confusing to have a, say, 1963 there. though i can understand the need for preciseness.
