Pixie Kitchen Billboard

This sketch was inspired by some fond childhood memories. It is my interpretation of one of the many billboards I used to see along Highway 18 when my family and I would be on our way to Lincoln City at the Oregon Coast. The Pixie Kitchen was opened in the late 30's (as I recall) in a little hamlet called Oceanlake right along Highway 101. At one point there was even a short lived amusement park called Pixieland just a few miles North, back on Highway 18. Sadly, both are long gone.

My interpretation of a billboard for the Famous Pixie Kitchen along Highway 18.

It is, indeed? Just curious, is there much retro/vintage design in Venezuela?
