I have a real soft spot for old school pin-up girl art - think Vargas, Elvgren, Armstrong, Ballantyne, Bass, etc. There are contemporary artists out there that are doing pin-up work, but none have managed to make a real impression on me - until now!
Andrew Bawidamann is right here in Columbus, Ohio - hi neighbor! - and his artwork is amazing. He takes the old pin-up art form and twists it, giving it a unique and stylized modern look. He does a lot of military themed girls which are a big hit with our soldiers!
His work seems to be popular with the tattoo crowd also, no surprise there - how cool would this be as a tattoo?
Ahh, if only I wasn't such a wuss with a needle phobia...
Anyway, here is the link to his site, be sure to stop by and check it out!
