This is from back in 2010 with the lovely Rayna Terror. Come on over to my instagram page thepinupprojectarchive for more!
This is my version of what could have been his “auto-dresser” with the lovely Simona entwined in it’s mechanisms. Not the easiest thing in the world to design, so I salute the genius of HR – long may your ideas entertain!
I figure that by the time I get round to maybe doing a couple of card ideas, getting them printed and maybe finding someone to sell them to it will probably be Christmas anyway so it made sense to start early. This one was actually fairly quick to turn around, it made me chuckle so I hope it might find an audience of similarly easily amused folk like myself! If anyone’s reading this then do leave a comment or get in touch by email or on facebook and let me know what you think about pinup Christmas cards – is it a good idea or not?
I can’t believe this is my first painting of the year and it’s the middle of September already! My pin-uppery has taken a bit of a back seat of late so it was really nice to get back to the easel and get down to some paint pushing. I hadn’t realised quite how rusty I was though, this one was a real challenge – it could have easily gone horribly wrong. Not my best work, but given the circumstances perhaps that’s to be expected. I need to keep my eye in a bit more regularly!
It’s been my privilege to work with some fantastic models in the past but Meluxine is arguably the most successful at what she does so it was with a little trepidation that I set out on this painting once our sitting was done. I was anxious not to make a mess of it. I’m afraid my nerves got the better of me in the end though and despite wanting to carry on with a looser technique that I’ve been experimenting with, this ended up reverting to my usual more finished style.
I’m not complaining, everything turned out ok, sometimes instinct can be relied on to get you through where brain power fails. Happy Halloween anyway!
