    I love drawing them. It's a sexy classic twist

    to drawing fashion sketches and models.

    I am a fan of the many nose art done on B-25 and B-29, not to also mention some of the early pin-up pictures........also like the way Boris Vallejo artwork on early sci-fi novels.....when they left a lot to the imagination and truly made it an art form...seems like these days...

    Such Confidence!

    I admire the self-confidence of women in the 1940s in general.  My mother was in her 20s then, and seeing her photo albums and hearing her stories gave me a sense of the liberation women of her generation felt during WWII.  That some of these women expressed that...

    I Really Do

    I wish I could be one back when they were presented so beautifully and sexy without being (like today) appearing somewhat trashy and slutty. I believe you can be beautiful with your clothes on. Thank you. Bettie Page is the epitome of the pin up girl. But let's not rule out the...

    I Admire Pin Up Girls

    There's just something about the pin up look that captivates me. It's super seductive without being over the top raw sex appeal. Personally i believe its nicer to leave things to the imagination.
