I noticed a lot of people using those illustrations from retro advertisements on t shirt designs, and Im wondering if those are free of copyrights? I have access to a whole bunch of them, by way of scanning the actual original pieces. Im wondering what the laws are regarding using these in designs.

Can't speak for all retro graphics, but I purchased an amazing royalty free art set from Nova which has literally hundreds of retro graphics (vectors, no less) for use on t-shirts, posters, etc...

Does Nova have a website by any chance? I'm also interested in royalty free retro graphics.

They sure do, it's: http://www.novadevelopment.com

Here's the product that I purchased:

http://www.novadevelopment.com/products/productinfo.aspx?productcode=aqw

I was gonna keep it a secret, but the fact is that I found out about it from the "I Made That" book. In fact, everyone who is new to t-shirt design may want to purchase a copy. There is a whole lot of useful information contained within the pages of that book.

Cheers,
Chris

Has anyone tried to learn how to draw your own retro drawings? There are some old illustration instruction books by Jack Hamm done in that style. I was thinking about trying to immitate that style when I get around to it. That way I could make some really hilarious custom retro drawings.
