Forget about gorgeous weather, beaches, museums and culture, we all know traveling is all about hunting down local urban legends – well, at least artist Fernando Reza portrays it that way! Back in September we posted a roundup of vintage Trans World Airlines (TWA) posters by David Klein, and these retro-inspired posters by Reza are similar in style with a whole lot of added whimsy.
Reza’s creative ads for the non-existent TWA invite tourists to travel to various destinations, like Puerto Rico, Loveland, Ohio, Manhattan, and Scotland with eye-catching graphics depicting their respective urban legends – mythical beasts like Bigfoot, El Chupacabra, and the Lochness Monster. Because nothing makes me want to hop on a plane more than the thought of running into creepy monsters that may or may not exist. I’ve seen Finding Bigfoot – it could happen.
In all seriousness though, these faux-vintage posters definitely highlight an aspect of travel that usually goes untouched except for in bad-but-addictive TV shows. Check them out below:
