Aude aux Abesses
What a lovely image: a gorgeous brunette in a “café”and a marvellous Paris Métro exit in Art Nouveau style. The enclosed exit of Porte Dauphine station with the “Metropolitain” word really exists and it was designed by Hector Guimard in1899. About the girl I’m not so sure. Maybe she’s only part of the imagination of the French artist Patrick Hitte. Hitte is specialised in cheesecake images. His pin-ups have a fresh new style with some details of classic pin-ups illustrations. More of his works at here.

    Hello Bibi,
    Thanks very much for your nice post.
    The girl is half my imagination and half a sketch from a sitter.
    The Metro Exit is Abesses Station, the one on Montmartre, place des Abesses. Hector Guimard did a wonderfull work. Regrettably, there are not much stations remaining.

    Thank you for the beautiful images: the pin-ups and the metro. That metro is on my list of places to visit in Paris, since the first time I saw a picture of it, years ago.

    What a blog.
    You do a real job on it!
    Sometimes, i’d like to have two lives, one for drawing and one for surfing on internet.
    Thanks for all your interesting links.
    Example : The Pulp books, it will help me for my project of calendar 2009 (i’m finishing now the 2008), I want to make 12 pin-up like those book covers, SF, fantastic, etc…

    Merci beaucoup Patick. Vous êtes très gentil! J’ai tout le temps du monde pour blogger. C’est pour ça qu’il y a beaucoup de nouveautés ici toutes les jours.
    Sur les liens… je vous en prie. 🙂
    Just to test my French. And French always sounds prettier than English to me. 😉
    I’m glad I can help other people. And please let me know when you finish your new pin-ups.
