I had a friend with a decent-enough career as a graphic artist, but when digital became the mode, he failed to pick it up and lost out. Became a rural taxi-driver. 

 

That happened to us straight out of university. Substitute rural taxi driver for traveling the world on engineering projects and getting shot at.

Well, 'charlie' is slang for cocaine, 'horse' for heroin, so maybe airbrushing does things I've yet to discover.  I suppose it would be ok for a high gloss finish.

Back in the 80s, poster shops were chock full of airbrush art. Now thought of as either crass or vintage.

 

Some of us thought it was crass back then! Athena had a lot to answer for.

You looked at the movie posters and ignored everything else!

Oh yes, the bum scratcher. She definitely wasn't airbrushed. Long before Photoshop!

That’s when I discovered you had to varnish the chipboard before you mounted the poster on it  with wallpaper paste!   Ah, those well filled fishnet tights!

You've mostly managed to avoid casting shadows on the backscene, shame that right hand chimney can't be slightly further back.

Or maybe move it left a bit to the end of the building, but would probably mess up the roof base. Whatever, all looking very good.

I was going to suggest Encome Town as a first choice, but now consider the previous answer to be much more specific and yet generic, accurate whilst being ambiguous,  and terminal and at the same time open ended. 

 

Hussah!!
