Walt Otto’s Pin Up Girls

Autumn is slowly slipping away from us, but I found these beautiful illustrations by Walt Otto that are reminiscent of harvest season.

They are very wholesome indeed 🙂

Edward Runci’s Pin Up Girls

It’s been a while since we had some Pin Up Girls, so today I wanted to post images by Edward Runci.

His skills are comparable to  Gil Elvgren.

 Runci girls frequently got caught in compromising situations like climbing a fence to flee a bull, or dress blowing up on a Ferris Wheel ride.

His girls are rosy-cheeked, voluptuous, often blonde Marilyn Monroe-types who radiate  wholesome sensuality.

 Who doesn’t like a cheeky Pin Up!

Jay Scott Pike’s Pin Up Girls

Although  I usually focus on the works of Gil Elvgren, there are so many amazing Pin Up painters worth mentioning.

Todays Girls are the work of Jay Scott Pike.

There’s a lot of knickers / panties dropping which can only be a sign of how inferior elastic waists were back in the day 🙂
