Vintage “Wink Magazine” pinup portrait of Tanya from Queens, New York.  I was commissioned by Tanya to create a full body pinup portrait. She gave me free reign to create anything I wanted as long as the hair was long and keeping her signature glasses. I’m sure I am not the first artist to utilize the concept of recreating the illustrations of vintage “girlie”mags” from the 1950s such as Titter, Wink, Whisper, Flirt, Beauty Parade, and more. Some of the past pinup art masters for these titles were Peter Driben, Earl Moran and Billy De Vorss who set the standards and foundational look and posing style on these covers. Current pinup photographers utilize these very covers as reference material for their models.   I also share a fondness for these classic mags, and are incredibly fun to create. I wanted to convey that it was a vintage Latina issue of WINK seating her on a conga under a palm tree frond. The lettering, title masthead, and “Fun in San Juan” all had to be created carefully from scratch for authenticity purposes (included the dingy edges) Simple font matching won’t do. She sports a pair of native “Taino Sun” earrings. I updated (or retrograded) her glasses into cat eye wear to keep her signature look yet stay true to the decade. Lastly I constructed tons of flowing hair. I think she looks adorable.  Any questions about portrait commissions, feel free hit me up. me@riceandbeanz.net  #Portrait #Commission #WinkMagazine  #pinup #wink  #GirlieMag #SanJuan #PuertoRico #Conga #curvy #illustration #art #painting #Santiago #Riceandbeanz (Taken with instagram) View high resolution
