Lorelei James and MaryJanice Davidson are doing an event together to benefit the Readiatrics Book Drive – and the ads for the event are something else. I’m totally impressed with the quality and if it weren’t such a far walk, I’d head out to Rapid City to attend.
I love the use of vintage art, especially pinup girls. I know some folks hate them, but for me, the more curvy images of women are so much more powerful now, and seem daring and subversive decades after they were originally painted. The vintage pinup girl also wears a lot more clothing than current depictions of sexualized women, and reveals how much the concept of sexy has changed, and at the same time, not changed. Now, if we can come up with some vintage pinup dudes, that would be even better. I’d have a decor motif for my office!
