does some beautiful work, especially pinups, and I sure do love a good pinup! So I thought I just had to have him draw PinUp Girl, natch. Go cruise by his gallery, by the way, to see some lovely ladies.
Mario has a great handle on the classic pinup vibe, I think--that tongue-in-cheek sassiness and humor that lets the viewer know the lady is having fun and not taking things too seriously. I let him run with it, and he came up with this great idea of putting PinUp on a mini-sub, a take on the classic girl-on-bomb nose art motif. It fits PinUp's nautical outfit well. This is just a fun little piece, and the little touches of color on the grey tones really stand out.
Thanks, Mario, for this old-school pinup of PinUp Girl!
