Please suggest images I could convert into crewel which are cartoon modern in style, but not depictions of characters.

I have The New Crewel
and plenty of can-do spirit, and I want to do a crewel project for my home. A pillow, perhaps.
I love the look of "Cartoon Modern,"
and have some Eyvind Earle
art at home, so while I thought of imitating his style, I don't think that would serve my crafting goals best.
I'd like to get ideas for cityscapes, landscapes, space scenes, machinery, or other background-level depictions that I can "trace and color" myself with crewel yarn and creative stitching. I'm not much good at starting from a blank slate. They should be colorful and not incredibly complex. The image linked above is a good level of complexity, but I don't really want an office with some dudes as decor.
It seems like the web is full of hip artists whose work would be suitable for a little tribute like this.
Any ideas, guys?
