Portrait commission of Dilcia @Dilci from New York who recently moved back to the Dominican Republic for work. Being a good girl, she wanted a slightly “bad girl” look. I gave the art a flat poster / vintage 1950’s tropical mambo record cover treatment with sexy red tones and gave her “Bettie Bangs” haircut creating an overall a mischievous look.

Do they build like this anymore?  PART 2
In 1955, a burlesque dancer Geraldine Garner aka Sequin made Time magazine after she called Columbus, Ohio, police to report a Peeping Tom. After the peeper was arrested, a thankful Sequin presented the cops with an autographed nude photo of herself.
On it, she wrote: “What the Peeping Tom was peeping at.”

Why do my pinup portrait transformations takes up to 100 hours to create?
These tiny Instagram photos really don’t do any detail justice. For my “A game” portraits, I compose a complete full body sexy pinup from just a simple cellphone camera photo as reference.
It’s not enough to be an illustrator, but to also wear the hats of a fashion stylist, hair stylist, set designer, and makeup artist. These things consume time, but yield fulfilling results. Curious about being transformed?—-> PortraitsbySantiago@gmail.com <—-

Portrait of Kanoena ( @bxwahie ) from the Bronx.  I was commissioned by Kanoena to create a pinup. Not sure what concept she hand in mind, on a fluke, she was consuming a Hawaiian beverage called &#8220;Aloha Maid&#8221;. A light bulb went off and requested that I create a Hawaiian inspired pinup called &#8220;Aloha Made&#8221; as homage to her roots and homeland. Her is the result.
