I have for the past few years been getting into a lot of retro art and styles from the 40's-60's. One of the things that I have ALWAYS wanted to do was an old-fashioned 50's pin-up girl drawing! I looked for inspiration from old photos of actresses like Elizabeth Taylor, Jayne Mansfield and Betty Page, but I ended up liking this one photo of Marilyn Monroe, who lets face it, is a beauty ICON of that time. So this is based on that photo roughly. I have done a few more of them as well, who knows, maybe I will end up doing a pin-up calendar! Hehehe!
