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: February is here, bringing the last unseen pinup online from the Pinups 2006 Calendar (which will be no longer be for sale by the end of the month – buy now!).
February is a hard month, because you don’t want to do the obvious. When I think of Valentine’s Day, I think of intimacy and sharing in whatever form (sexual or not). Sharing a bed with anyone is pretty intimate, so I pictured this pinup waiting for someone, either a lover, husband, boyfriend, girlfriend… whatever. Color-wise, I wanted to have rich coffee and chocolate hues to offset the pinup’s red hair and undergarments. I think it all works pretty well together.
Next month is March, bringing us a whole year of pinups here on the site! I’ll have to think of something good!
