Milan-based illustrator Lorenzo Gritti’s work harkens back to the cheap and terrible printing techniques from the early to middle part of the 20th century. Over and above this further back than retro style, there is a no muss, no fuss, simplicity in the construction and execution of his witty, conceptual illustrations. Restraint is one of life’s simple pleasures don’t you think?

Oh, one more thing. Don’t you wish you could be a Milan-based anything?
