These stunning prints are being sold directly by the artist, Neal McCullough. When I spotted them, they blew my mind. They are the perfect combination of childhood toy memories and Mary Blair. Don’t take my word for it though, just feast your eyes on these…
How did Neal create the happy masterpieces?
Looking at the toys my kids play with today got me thinking back to the mid 70s, when I’d play for hours with my sturdy Little People playsets. It’s an endearing childhood memory that’s really endured, and I’ve noticed those same playsets in use at my daughter’s nursery school and friends’ houses to this day. It’s great to see toys lasting several generations and still being played with, not just sitting on a collector’s shelf.
I’ve illustrated three scenes in these new, limited edition art prints; the Airport, the Service Center and the Schoolhouse taking inspiration from the original toys we know and love. These colourful prints will look great hanging anywhere kids gather to play.
Priced at £20.00 ($33.00), there are only 50 of each print available. Each print is signed and numbered by the artist. This A3 sized print features an original Hand Drawn Creative illustration and is professionally printed in Belfast, using the finest textured paper (Nettuno Bianco Artico 140GSM).
