A couple of days ago I posted a Marilyn Monroe tribute on this site and I posted about it over on Pinup Lifestyle



one of the members there, Rockabilly Richie to be precise, is an artist and he commented that he had just finished a Marilyn Monroe digital painting

so I trot my ass over to his pic area and there it is and in fact it is a digital version of one of my favorite Marilyn pics

I'd be remiss if I didn't tell you that he is working on a book called Garage Dolls (several images in this post are from the preview) and as of February 19 out of 30 images are really to roll.



oh and he paints scenery for movies,TV, Broadway, pin up art, band posters and logos

and murals.. don't forget murals

If you've been around for a while you might remember a feature I did on Richie back in December of 2008

The artist category on My Favorite Pinups was created for that post.



and here I am a year and a half showing off this mans talent once again

What I really like about Richie's work is the ability to not on recreate a photo digitally, but to add his own artistic touch

the colors are vivid, the lines are crisp where they need to be and soft where called for

and in the Marilyn pic he captures vulnerability in her eyes
