So, I'm redesigning mooncatx's Jem archive, and for fun, decided the layout for the Red Room (i.e. the blue archive) should have pin-up versions of Jem and Pizzazz akin to the one I did of Stormer last year (see icon). The archive won't be up for a while, but I thought you might get a kick out of these (which are featured in a slightly more edited [i.e. the Naughty Bits are Hidden] form in the layout):

Jem as a Petty girl
Pizzazz as a Varga girl

(warning: not work-safe)

For them what don't know, George Petty and Alberto Vargas were artists who drew pin-ups for magazines like Esquire during WWII, and into the 1950s and 1960s. It's an art form known as "good girl" art, I know it's not to everyone's taste, but I just had such fun manipping the images.

Vargas is -gorgeous- stuff. I became more familiar with the range of pin-ups thanks to a fun little book I found in a bargain bin. Pages and pages and pages of pin-up reproductions. Yum!

My Poppy got me a Vargas tin with Diana the Huntress on the lid when I was 15, and that was my first Vargas pin-up girl. Fell madly in lvoe.

Those are beyond awesome! :) I love pinup art -- I'd never have thought of something like that!

Well, I wanted to do somethung sexy but still tasteful for the blue site. And it made sense to make Jem the coy Petty girl, and Pizzazz the slightly more slutty late-era Varga girl *lol*
