This is another from my retro advertising series where I created an image closer to what you would find in the back of a vintage comic book rather than a hanging sign like most of the other pieces. I have always been astounded and amazed by the range of toys from decades past that would be considered totally unacceptable today, recalling a time that appears violent on the surface but is truly more of a reflection of the innocence of youth, when a child could play with toys like these purely with the intent to have fun, with no dark or brooding subtext. Here we can see youth, mortality, innocence, death, consumerism, fear, life and joy.
