Mid-Century Retro Lunch Special

Cheerful "mid-century" colors and motifs decorate Mena's signboard in the bagel shop this winter. We are getting a new board for 2010. This one will be retired to wall duty after being knocked about for three years. I continue to use '50s and early '60s design on my commercial signs. It is quite trendy and you can see it in "retro" style packaging and graphics these days if you pay attention. But I am old enough to remember the original stuff and back then it was considered cheesy and silly. Now it's chic.

Acrylic "chalk" markers on painted Masonite, 30" x 20".
