Kelly Hall Brighton Pier

We've featured lots of updates on the classic travel poster before, encouraging you to visit everywhere from the United States to space. Slightly closer to home – but no less appealing for it – are Kerry Hall's takes on the travel poster, inspired by Brighton and the surrounding Sussex countryside.

1930s Seaside Prints by Dave Thompson

Dave t 
A frequent sight in British railway stations from the early 1920s, sharp & stylised posters advertised tourist hotspots accessible by rail, from the sunny climes of the Cornish coast all the way up to the remote Scottish Highlands, showing off the understated glamour of what's now become known as a 'staycation'. 

Artist Dave Thompson has captured the resurgence of the 'stay at home holiday' and taken inspiration from classic art deco railway posters to create these prints of iconic landmarks across the south coast, making a day trip to sunny Sussex as appealing as a weekend in Saint-Tropez (almost).

£25 each from Castor & Pollux Gallery. See the website for more details.

Mai Tai Zombie by Jonny Hannah

Mai tai

It's not the first time we've featured the striking work of British artist Jonny Hannah. His most recent exhibition Burning Love is a heady wall-to-wall mix of jazz, blues & retro Americana with a twist of wit and wickedness that has become his trademark.

Mai Tai Zombie is a unique painting on a cut out board, resembling the signs that adorned the original tiki bars that swept across America in the 1930s. An appropriate finishing touch for those lucky enough to have a bar at home, or those who just wish they did.

Mai Tai Zombie is £95 from Castor & Pollux - you can catch Jonny Hannah's Burning Love exhibition at their Brighton gallery until 13th March.
