Inspired by the classic pinups of yesteryear, here are my takes on the vintage pinup girl calendars (with a cartoonist's twist). Each month, I'll produce a pinup illustration available for download to use as wallpaper for your computer desktop. I may change my style from month to month in subject and in illustrative technique. For example, some may be very Vargas inspired, where as the next month could look like something Tex Avery would have done. Either way, these retro-inspired girls will hopefully give me a chance to explore the past (along with the female form in sexy and fun ways), and for you to enjoy the present everytime you turn on your computer.
Notes: This one snuck up on me! I can’t believe it is August already. Usually I start working up these pinups around the 15th of the month. I’ve been so busy that I realized Friday that the month was ending!
Ah, the beach pinup – long a standby favorite for artists everywhere. For mine, I decided to use a color scheme that reminds me of how awful the dog days of summer can feel. Which got me thinking… dog days of summer? Dog? Quincy! I had to do it!
So, let me dork out and tell you that since we have plenty of shots of the ol’ Quincers in iPhoto, it wasn’t too hard to find one with him chewing on some toy. I just changed the toy out with a bikini top. Instant Pinup Magic!
