Viva Las Vegas

Any time I get to watch a movie as research for a project, sign me up! I'm working on some Las Vegas themed illustrations at the moment, so did a sneaky 'research' afternoon of watching Elvis and Ann-Margret in the very glittery Viva Las Vegas. I'm a sucker for the signage of old Vegas, all those neons and lights and brilliant letters are all of my favourite things rolled up together. I was pretty well hooked just after the opening credits, with all of the camera pans over Vegas and the fancy hotels and casinos on the famous strip.
We didn't love Las Vegas quite so much when we visited in 2012, so it's nice to revisit and romanticise it a little through some illustrations. Hopefully I'll be back soon with some new work to show you!
