He left Esquire, to be replaced by Alberto Vargas who we will be featuring here soon, and became a freelance commercial artist. His girls soon ended up gracing magazine ads and calendars for such unlikely products as Tung-Sol Radio Tubes and the aptly named, Ridgid Tools.
If you LOVE Pin-ups like us, then you should check the Mel Ramos Pin-up too !
Do you design Pin-ups and calendar girls? Artistic custom calendars aren’t just great gifts, they’re also keepsakes.
Wow, how amazingly inspirational are the curvy Pin-ups of George Petty ! He was one of the top “cheesecake” illustrators of the 30s and 40s. He began his career with a series of cartoons featuring beautiful girls and their far from handsome beaus.His work coined the term “Petty Girls“ to describe the carefully airbrushed girls with brilliant smiles and sexy poses. SO kitsch and so beautiful, I always deeply loved Pin-ups !
