I went through a brief pin-up phase a month or so ago, and became somewhat enamoured with the work of Gil Elvgren. What a superstar. I decided I needed a book of his immediately, and have spent quite some time flicking through all his amazing work. Saucy ladies have never looked so, well, saucy I suppose. My phase has passed (I'll never be any good at drawing the human form, gosh-darn) but I'm still so impressed by all those lovely ladies.
