    Douglas Lee: Hot Dog

Love old 80s record sleeves? Then you'll love the airbrush illustration of Douglas Lee

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Ever drooled over your dad’s — or brother’s, or your own — record collection and ran your hands over the sleeves dreaming of airbrushed babes and toothpaste typography? If the answer is yes, and I sincerely hope it is, then you are certainly in the right place. Douglas Lee, one of the many talented illustrators of agency extraordinaire Monsieur L’agent, is one of those great people who ditched doing anything studious and taught himself the real things that matter in life: illustration, photography, graphic design and, most importantly, how to be really, really cool. See his artwork for Ariel Pink for proof of this, and while you’re there check out the smashing job he did on making old lady nail varnish look totes contemporary and trendy for French magazine Jalouse.
