What do you get when you pair vintage sheet music with vibrant, joyful doodles? Magic. You get magic.
This is the gorgeous, happy, lovable work of People Too. Designers/best friends Alexei Lyapunov and Leha Ehrlich stalk the sales and stalls in their native Novosibirsk, Russia. Then they take their precious finds back to their secret lair (no, I don’t know for sure that they have a lair. Bear with me. I’m painting a picture, here.) and doodle and doodle until the sheet music comes to life. The illustrations have an innocent 1950s vibe that I find really refreshing. They’d even work in a child’s room!
The design team also creates commercial-yet-charming paper sculptures which I have profiled before! If you’d like to purchase the musical doodles, gallery-quality prints, tote bags, note cards and the like can be found on Society6.
