Was going to get into air brushing techniques, which segued into Toulouse Lautrec and his spattered litho plates and from there to Eckersley Lombers but settled on Cassandre

You may have noticed by now that I like a sporting poster  and also matched pairs so as we are witnessing the start of the last tennis major of the year I bring you.

Its rather genius the way that it takes the perspective from the ball’s point of view and applies a sharp airbrush technique : very innovative for 1932.

In the early 80s an artist called Konrad Klapheck decided to take a riff on this classic. The ball had been done so how about ….. the raquet

Just as effective , one is deemed a classic the other a little bit of an also ran, I guess its all about timing.
