Little Tidbits: Winsor McCay and "Little Nemo"

i was in love with the movie Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland when i was younger, and i still have fond memories of watching it at my dad's with my sister, and having nightmares of the "nightmare king." in may i was told by a friend that the movie was based off a turn-of-the-century comic that was illustrated beautifully by Winsor McCay. after doing a little visual research i was totally surprised and fell even more in love with the story and with McCay's amazing illustrations.

i really enjoyed designing my children's wear print in the fall semester and i think that McCay's illustrations are definitely a unique and refreshing source of inspiration for an old fashioned-ish children's print. i could really see myself doing a print inspired by these in the near future.
