Illustration Friday "Rambunctious"

For this weeks Illustration Friday, I wanted to poke a bit of fun at the old 50's advertorials and their, sometimes, questionable products and ideals. I'm happy to say I've never had to resort to "BLAM-bunctious" or any other similar products ......... yet!

Hope you enjoy it and don't forget to read the small print.

  12. Brought to you by the same people as the 'Wilful Child home lobotomy kit" (discontinued) and the "Stay in your room straightjacket and soundproofing delux set". Beautiful concept and I love the execution, you really nail that 50's cooool style dadio! Your monster cards are the bees knees... a great illustration set in any format!
