60s Pin-up InkTober 8

The 1960s was a great time for Pretty Girls. Many of the models in "laddie" girly pin-up magazines were amateurs, modeling for small change or no payment at all. All they needed was some make-up, some simple lingerie, and a willing photographer. Most of them were "natural," no plastic surgery, no boob jobs, no liposuction, and only a bit of photo-retouching. I have a book of British would-be glamor girl photos from that era, and some of them even look like they are having fun. I haven't drawn a pin-up girl figure for quite a while and here's one of those Brit birds. Just a bit 'o' nostalgia for those of us of a "certain age."

Pitt brush pen, originally sepia switched to greyscale, some white-out. 3 1/2" x 6 1/2" on sketchbook page, October 8, 2015.
