Illustration Styles

So I’ve decided that regardless of the outcome of my project it will definitely contain illustrations, whether it is cubes or cards.

Therefore i have decided to look into illustration styles of the 1940’s, 1950’s and 1960’s when the now elderly were youthful in order for myself to develop a style that would connect to the users (dementia suffers). I feel that if i interpret a style that would have been familiar to a dementia sufferer years ago they are more likely to reminisce and connect to the illustration, as commonly dementia sufferers believe that they are still in a period of time in the past.
