What Everyone Ought To Know About The lost art of Pin-up art.

Marie Clarie,vintage fashion,art,makeup,retro style,They're many Pin-up artists and a lot of them are loved but Pin-up art is not as popular as it once was.
Back then Pin-up art was seen in magazines, ads, billboards,
but now? not so much. tough they're some people who took this age-old art and added a modern twist, like the 2012 April issue of Marie Claire. so let's take a look at ads and Pin-up artist from back then.


Oh, before we get started. for people who are unfamiliar with the term, "Pin-up girl" their traditionally sex symbols and their pictures were often "Pined-up" on a wall. basically, whatever product you put them on sold like hot cakes.

The artist that is known for illustrating the covers of cosmopolitan, life magazine, and more! He's known mostly as a "Glamour artist" then a "Pin-up" artist, that's probably because he focuses on Glamour then being in your face sexy. his art is more 1940's style when casual elegant attire was in.






Dan DeCarlo.
(1919-2001)
