PLEASE NOTE, the displayed parody artworks of classical cartoon characters are not copies but distinct satiric imitations/caricatures, by exaggerating and transforming the original characters and their related indica (see 'Coat of Smiles') in a way that creates new originals and new meanings, different from the intentions of the originals.

Pan Am

I just came across this graphic design gem from the past.

This BTW reminds me of another Pan Am piece. Actually, I already posted this here on the blog. But anyway, it's always worth a re-post: "At Pan Am the sky is no longer the limit."
