I wanted to do a painting that almost had you looking at it through drug fueled eyes.
Just a space girl on a mission.
I like the composition. The window of the ship reinforces the window on her suit and the fact that her boobs are right in the middle of the frame almost making some sort of vortex you can't turn away from. The fact that the window on her suit is completely unnecessary (technically) adds a bit of humor, and it makes you feel less guilty for looking since the suit is obviously designed to be looked at. The viewer feels safe to look for the aforementioned reasons plus she is encapsulated and not making eye contact. I like that it's not a cliche pin up, you're really using the sci-fi elements to further the composition and not just as a setting or theme.

Inspired by a fellow artist named Reiq, I did my own take on one of his characters.
Buckling The Swash
Stepping out of my comfort zone a bit, made this one a bit more painterly. Another pirate girl…got the skin darker also.
Skirting The Issue
This was my Betty Page image. I believe every pin-up artist is supposed to draw her, I think I read that in the rules.
That Damn Thing
The original idea was to do an all reddish picture and it was a good reason to revisit the horns on Love of a Demon Angel.
My first space girl. Named after a song by Stereo Space Sounds Unlimited. Check them out, GO I’ll wait.
A moderately successful pin-up. Another very early attempt. Now that I think about it she’s very pale skinned to be a pirate.
