Superheroes' Cities and Pop Culture Cars

If you love the look of retro posters, check out these by Justin Van Genderen. The Chicago-based illustrator has created a set he calls Comic Travel Locations that show places like Gotham and Metropolis in stunning style.

“If superheroes really existed in this world we might see a poster like these in some old travel agency, all tattered hanging on the wall,” Van Genderen said in an e-mail interview with

If you're more into old tv shows than you are are into comic books, you'll get a kick out of his series Vintage Car Ads. "Here are a few cars from my childhood," Van Genderen says.

You can buy these and more over at Imagekind.
