this was a direct experiment from 'gigposters' ( steve walters' work). it was fun but i got to admit it took a hell of alot longer to do than i'd hoped for. i'd like to keep working up this style ala terry gilliam and winston smith. wish me the best.
kraftie* it's from the 'rottenberg collection'. definetly the good, bad and fugly of pin-ups.
yes i did the baackground. i worked in the surf industry for over 10 years so i've drawn more than my fair share of hibiscus.
thanks guys* i'm happy w/ the way this came out but unfortunetly it was a rushed job. i'm usually really anti using an image twice but this has such good potential that i need to hit the xerox and do it right. we'll see.
