Drawing Inspiration from Your Locale

A lot of artists and designers draw inspiration from where they live and, for me, Pueblo is a source of inspiration.  Pueblo was once as a well-off Victorian establishment, then became a steel city and is now a growing arts circuit.  As a result, there is a lot of history, a mixture of culture and ethnicity and a mixed graphic design style. The posters in Pueblo range from sleek contemporary to an odd but effective combination of grungy and mid-century modern.  Last Leaf Printing pretty much summarizes the mixed style in Pueblo that has been an inspiration to me.  The murals and building ads are my favorites--some of them are the vintage thing and others are retro contemporaries.  Here are some details of my favorite murals in Pueblo.
