The Wonderful World of Randy Regier

via Web Urbanist:

You may not have heard of Randy Regier yet, but you’ll be glad you did. This Maine based artist creates amazing works in a faux retro style that shows a high regard for the reckless optimism and futurism of post war America. Randy handcrafts toys and creates humorous packaging that exemplifies a bygone era in American culture.

As someone who dabbles in retro photo techniques myself, I am really impressed with his level of authenticity and attention to detail. Look at the photos — no softboxes here, it’s all high-wattage flood and spot lights. Awesome. Not to mention his ridic fabrication skills. Wow!

You can check out more of Randy’s work here.
