That Low-Down Feeling

Pin-Ups & Calendar Girls for your Bachelor Pad: Picture Gallery devoted to Gil Elvgren‘s Pin-Up & Calendar Girls.

Elvgren was one of the most important pin-up and glamour artists of the twentieth century. In addition, he was a classical American illustrator. He was a master of portraying the feminine, but he wasn’t limited to the calendar pin-up industry.
…the Norman Rockwell of cheese-cake. His heroines are often caught in humorous but distressing situations. His exquisite oils of gorgeous girls-next door their skirts often blowing up to reveal lovely nylon-clad limbs rival his mentor Haddon Sundblom’s “Coca-Cola” Santas for sheer nostalgic pleasure.

He made some remarkable pin-up images, like “Weighty Problem“, “Bear Facts” and “The Right Touch“, and Coca-Cola ads like “Just Like Old Times“. More of his works can be found at Gil Elvgren, The Painted Anvil, Pin-Up Pages, The Pin-up Files, Mop Pin-up, including an unpublished illustration, Vanguard Gallery, Mutoworld and Spotlight on Golden Age Advertising. BTW, just few of his illustration works can be NSFW. (via dadanoias)
