I’ve always had a great affinity for anything vintage, distressed, aged, and plain ol’ beaten’ down lookin’. In thinking about possible sources of inspiration for this, two things come to mind: the television shows ‘Sandford and San’ and ‘Barney Miller.”
With the former, I just loved that red pickup truck and the faded white lettering on the door panels.
With the latter, the entire set seemed to take its colouring from a dusty old attic. Of course, the most prominent vintage item on Barney Miller was Sergeant Wojciehowicz’ baseball that sat on his desk.
