Inspiration: Ward’s Morgue File

Today for our illustration inspiration, we’re featuring an Instagram feed that’s quickly growing into a bounty of visual goodness. Our internet buddy/art pen pal Ward Jenkins started Ward’s Morgue File in November of last year (2018) and has already curated over 150 beautiful examples of mid-century commercial art, concept art for animated films, record covers, and illustrated books. To date he’s covered so many of the greats: Mary Blair, Tom Oreb, Gene Deitch, Jim Flora, Walt Peregoy, Alice & Martin Provensen, Ralph Hulett, and more.

Pop over and check it out:
