- Full Description
’80s and ’90s pop culture, homages to Alberto Vargas and other classic pinup illustrators, and contemporary fashions and fetishes are all inspiration for an exciting collection of modern pin-ups. With tributes to Baywatch, Rambo, Star Wars, Jessica Rabbit, this collection of over-the-top Americana also features standouts from Alvarado’s Redneck Pin-up series; provocatively posed pirates; leather jacket-wearing blondes; classy big-haired chicks with antique cars; a dynamite-wielding cowgirl; polo-playing preppies. No full nudity.
Plus a sword-swallowing gal; laser- and gun-toting steampunks; sultry nurses; elegant ballroom dancers; and more. Alvarado’s belief is that it’s all about the model; her image and pose are the most important elements in a composition, and he draws the viewer’s attention to the models by employing a plain white background in many images, but using flamboyant costumes and props. Tattoos are part of the mix.
Alvarado's latest book, Cosplay Pin-Ups, has proven so popular--and we liked it too--we decided to bring back both of his previous collections.
