“pin-ups”

  1. Dan DeCarlo (1916 – 2001)

    Daniel S. DeCarlo was an illustrator and comics artist best know for his work with Archie Comics. DeCarlo grew up in a poor neighbourhood of New Rochelle, New York but dreamed of becoming an illustrator like his hero, Norman Rockwell. Young DeCarlo attended the New Rochelle High School and upon graduating, he actually phoned Rockwell to discuss his university options. Inevitably, DeCarlo enrolled in the same university that Rockwell’s once attended, the Manhattan’s Art Students League.

  2. Manga Mondays ~ Ilya Kuvshinov

    Ilya Kuvshinov is an illustrator and storyboard artist originally from Moscow, Russia, but whom currently resides in Yokohama, Japan. Much of his personal work consists of pin-ups influenced by video games and film. Beautifully and sensitively rendered, Kuvshinov is able to paint alluring female characters without the need to sexualise them (for the most part).

  3. Earl Oliver Hurst (1895 – 1958)

    An inductee of the Society of Illustrators Hall of Fame, Earl Oliver Hurst’s work is unmistakeable. Born in 1898 New York, Mr. Hurst’s career was exceptionally successful, of course, not without a difficulty. He chopped and changed his path and titles quite a few times but worked with a host of clients along the way. Some of his well-known magazine work includes Collier’s, American Weekly, True, Pictorial Review, McCalls, and Home Magazine. Also doing numerous advertising illustrations for the likes of Nabisco, Royal Crown Cola, General Electric, Sanka, Jantzen Swim Suits, and Swan Soap.

  4. Book Review ~ Sirens: The Pin-Up Art of David Wright

    David Wright was one of the leading pin-up artists of the 20th Century. Unlike his American contemporaries Alberto Vargas and Gil Elvgren, the British-born Wright brought a sense of realism to his willowy beauties, who appeared in publications on both sides of the Atlantic, especially during WW2. Now, finally, access has been granted to his archive, and this is the first ever collection of his work.

  5. Daniela Uhlig

    German Illustrator and digital painter Daniela Uhlig has a rather eclectic style. Daniela has a fantastic ability to render the female form and create dazzling pin ups and gorgeous faces. Based in Berlin  she currently works full time however she also works as a freelancer in her spare time and still manages to find time to produce more personal work.

  6. Edwardo Risso

    As an avid fan, I have been following the work of Argentinean comic book illustrator Edwardo Risso, for some time now. Best known for his collaborative work with writter Brian Azzarello on 100 Bullets, Mr. Risso and his iconic, often gritty, style has become instantly recognisable among comic fans.

  7. Robert Sammelin

    I am just about in love with the work of self-taught Swedish illustrator, Robert Sammelin. Since 2007 he has worked as a Senior Concept Artist at DICE, producing concept art and graphic design for the Battlefield series, Medal of Honor, and Just Cause 2.
