A sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations.
“I was overcome with acute nostalgia for my high school days.”
Everybody loves the happy, warm and fuzzy feelings of their youth. Everybody longs for the simpler times of days gone by. Nostalgia means reliving and reflecting on your past — those family vacations, the childhood friends, the movies you saw, the TV shows you watched, the music you listened to, and the many current events of the day.
And being a graphic designer, I decided to bring back the long forgotten culture of the 60s, 70s, 80s, and more by illustrating them on a wearable medium — the nostalgia T-shirt (and in some cases the sweatshirt and hoodie).
I started BLVDdesign.store in early 2021 when I got myself a digital drawing tablet — never used one of these in my life. Started doodling with it and I eventually illustrated things I remember as a kid. I did a few designs and printed them on T-shirts for friends and family members. The shirts received rave reviews. So, I started this website as a document/portfolio of my doodles but presented them on shirts. I’ll continue to upload these doodles of a time gone by — lets pay tribute to the good ol’ days!
