There is a style of artwork that I want to learn to create. It abstracts away most detail, but it is not really abstract art. It has a lot in common visually with vector illustrations, but some of the examples I see are created using markers, acrylics, and other physical approaches (as opposed to digital). Here are examples (all motorsports, but I also see this style with some vintage travel posters):

example 1

example 2

example 3

    I don't think these are the same style. Nos. 1 and 2 are similar, you could call them pop art, but No. 3 looks like a 3D render of a car, and to me it stands out as totally different to the other two.

"Pop art" seems to fit the bill to me.

It really doesn't matter if an illustration is created in a traditional manner or digital manner. That doesn't necessary alter the name of a style, if there even is a name (not everything has a name).
