Vintage Character Inspiration from The Imaginary World

I am really bad at drawing people and animals, as in I draw stick figures.... Yes I know, it is horrible. I recently came across this treasure trove of awesome vintage packaging over at The Imaginary World and am in awe of how simple some of these characters are but how much expression you get out of them. We just finished watching season one of Mad Men last night (Yes, I am that far behind. Don't judge me), so these are right up my alley! 

I am guessing Cecil is the fish/ swap thing?

That bird kills me!

My personal favorite!

All of these can be found over at The Imaginary World, along with a lot of other images of vintage packaging.
