I know it would be strange to say that I am a huge fan of the 1950's pin up art...but I am...so when I saw the prompt over at Sunday Postcard art...I had to do a ink and watercolour piece to honor that fun loving period....Everyone always looked so good back then...their hair was always made up...they had the coolest red lipstick!!! I love it!! I think that is why I love red lipstick so much...and my nickname is lips!!! lol
I think I will have to do more of these...
The above image is some fan art I created as inspired by Illustrator Al Moore.
Moore was a busy illustrator from the 1940s to the late 50s, generating advertising, fashion, story art, and pin-ups. Covers for Saturday Evening Post and Collier's and interior work for these and Woman's Home Companion, American Magazine, Woman's Day, McCall's, Cosmopolitan. Ads for Hertz, Whitman's Chocolates, Ford, Camay, Nash, US Rubber, Coke, Old Gold, Botany. Replaced Vargas and Petty as Esquire's main pin-up man. Moore's girls are less glossy and impossible than those of his talented predecessors, being more girl-next door realistic and natural. He provided calendars for Esquire, Brown and Bigelow. Last illustrations for Pan Am and US Olympics.
