They're creepy and they're kooky...

A couple of pics today. The first was from the series of pin-up illos I did for Penthouse magazine.
I thought it was appropriate after all the discussion on female pubic hair over at Eddie C's blog. Interestingly, I always wanted these paintings to be far more 'coy' in keeping with a 40's Elvgren-style of thing. The magazine wanted see more rather than less, so this is where the illo ended up.
In this era of instant images, photoshop etc. I think the only reason for doing pin-ups like this is if it's in a nostalgic context.

Sometimes you scribble away and the end result is not too crap.

Wow. I never thought I'd see a naked Morticia. And now that I have, I think it's pretty cool. Nice atmosphere with the bats and the creepy blue skintone. The sketch below is a good one, too.
