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: Holy crap, it’s Christmas time! And I hope to have a little Christmas announcement here shortly, but for now, here is December’s pinup! Nothing too fancy here, although this is the first one of these that I’ve used Photoshop to finish (versus Illustrator). I made use of Twinsparc’s Wet Floor actions on this piece, just because I thought it might be nice to pare down the background for once. To simplify. An important rule for everyone I think during the holidays: cut out the background noise and simplify your life so you can get through to the new year!
Happy holidays to all of you! Thanks for coming back month after month to download these pinups. Now that I’ve started to track them, it is pretty amazing how popular they really are, and that is incentive enough for me to keep doing them! See you in the New Year! Be sure to come back next week for that announcement (or sign up to the e-mail list, or my site feed – whichever floats your boat).
