America The Beautiful Posters - Government Sponsored WPA New Deal Art a National Treasure

Collection of Vintage Travel Posters.

Our Vintage Travel America Collection are reproductions of the original works of art commissioned by The Federal Art Project from 1935 to 1943. Works Progress Administration created over 2,000 elaborate posters dedicated to a plethora of New Deal initiatives which include Travel America Theme posters. Under the direction of the Works Progress Administration, New Deal program, the project was created to provide employment to Americas artist during the Great Depression. Artists were paid $23.60 a week to produce murals, easel paintings, sculpture, graphic art, posters, photography, museum and theater scenic design, and arts and crafts. This mammoth undertaking provided meaningful work for more than 10,000 unemployed and underemployed artists who produced hundreds of thousands of artworks commissioned under the Federal Art Project. As a result, the Federal Art Project supported such iconic artists as Jackson Pollock, Orson Welles, and Woody Guthrie, before their work could earn them income.

Being a Nerd Is Cool - Get Your Geek On.

Being a geek or nerd is now cool!

Well, how did that happen?  I remember a time when being a nerd was like having a social disease.  You were one of the "smart kids", the kids who got all A's, when you and your peeps were struggling to pull a C like it was a big accomplishment.  Well, how time change and actually for the better.  In today's world of high technology the "smart kids" pull down the big paychecks, stock plans from the tech giants.  The news is full of stories of 20 year old millionaires and a few billionaires.  So now it cool to be a GEEK! Popular culture has embraced and endorsed the coolness of nerds with humorous movies, where the geek becomes the hero and saves the day, the nerd now gets the beautiful girls.  On TV the leading comedy sitcom is "The Big Bang Theory", a group of nerds who have developed friendships even though they are socially awkward.  Nerd humor is in the drivers seat each episode as they live their lives and do their jobs as scientific geniuses with heaping amounts of  jokes, puns, innuendos and word plays all revolving around science and math. Hopefully, this new coolness of science and math will translate into more and more young peeps embracing the sciences disciplines in the future.  The United States has been lagging in this area for quite some time, our future depends on invention and innovation. Here's a short video clip with a few of my favorite funny science and math design illustrations ...

Get Your Geek On!

Paranormal Supernatural Extraterrestrial

What are they? Do they really exist? Are they dangerous?

Supernatural beings and experiences, mysterious legends, fantastic tales of monsters, creatures of legends, UFOs, extraterrestrial beings, life after death experiences, paranormal activity, all of which are unexplained phenomena.  Unexplained events of un-explain beings and unbelievable events continue to fascinate us today as much as men of early history.   Folklore told around a campfire hundreds of years ago continues to engage us today.  Often discussed on shows like Coast to Coast Am and radio legend Art Bell new show Midnight in the Desert, people from over the world relate hair raising stories of mysterious beings.  Here's just a few ...



Many species appear in cryptozoological literature, including mythical and animals of folklore, such as Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster. Cryptids have appeared regularly within TV, movies, comic books and popular culture. A few examples such as the okapi and mountain gorilla are also commonly used by cryptozoologists as examples of animals they say were previously thought to be cryptids, but are now known to truly exist.  Could this also be true of Yeti? Nessie? Mothman?  Only time will tell.




Bigfoot, Sasquatch

Bigfoot is described as large, black, dark brown or reddish brown hair, muscular, bipedal ape-like creature, 7 ft. to 10 ft. tall and estimated to weigh from 300 to 1,000 pounds. Report of Big Foot sightings have mainly come from the Pacific Northwest region of North America. However, British Columbia and Western Canada have many stories of encounters with humans.
