I was first introduced to the work of Miroslav Šašek in 2006 during a trip to Ottawa. In the bookstore of the National Art Gallery was a copy of “This is the Way to the Moon”. The fact that it was about space travel was enough to get me to pick it up. At the time, illustration and lettering weren’t even on my radar, so back on the shelf it went.
Fast forward a few years, and now I’m diving into this whole lettering/illustration thing. I knew I was skewing into a neo-retro style, and had been building a library of styles I liked. The one illustrator that kept popping up was Sasek.
