- December, 2011
Once a year or so I put up a post that is basically an about me, why I do this yada yada bullshit
It's pretty easy.. I'm a guy who loves pinups
All kinds of pinups, traditional, modern, noir, fetish, cheesecake, burlesque, boudoir, classic, retro, etc etc etc
The stuff you'll find here is what I find interesting. You should notice that there are no ads running on this site, well expect for the Pinup Lifestyle banner and an old Kitten Koffin Zombies banner because I hope they bring their calendar back
I don't normally solicit submissions, tho I occasionally ask for a little nudge, and I am not opposed to finding pics in my inbox of someone that you might find interesting.
Sure I have my own personal favorites and I'm always on the look out for new pics from the likes of Roxy Tart, NolaChick, Scarlet von Harlot, and Wink Holliday. (There are more and I am always on the lookout for my next favorite)
There are a ton of pinup sites out there, lots on facebook and tumblr and other places. I've tried to make My Favorite Pinups just a little different in the format and the lack of ads and I can tell you for a fact that I don't make a dime on it, the site doesn't even pay for itself.. it's a labor of love.
My Favorite Pinups actually started with a suggestion from my wife, Anne, who got tired of me bitching and saying I should do my own pinup site and convinced me to just go do it. Besides encouraging my hobby of looking at girls, Anne created all the graphics for the original version of the site as well as this one.
These days Anne run a kick ass nail salon in Racine, WI called Nailed It! and you should most definitely get your ass in her chair for some serious nails
The girls shown here today are, in order..
and lastly. a little about me, not like you asked or anything.
My name is John and yes that is my real pic. I was born and raised in New York and moved to Wisconsin in 1998 to be with Anne. We have 4 kids aged 9-19
I work in the IT field and have for the past 20 years, even though I have a couple of degrees in Music.
Bass player by trade and I do play some guitar but mostly for laughs.
and of course I love pinups
Be well everyone, have a merry holiday season (Solstice, Kwanzaa, Chanukah, Christmas and everything else that falls around now) and a safe and happy new year.
in other words. Buon Natale e Buoni Novi Anni
A couple of weeks ago I got an email from Twitter that said:
From 1990 thru 1998 I spent friday nights watching the best B movies that USA could offer and waiting for Miss Rhonda Shear's skits and of course her perky "UP all night"
and of course I ran right out the picked up the June 1991 and October 1993 editions of PlayboyBut much like my Marilyn Monroe thing, my love of Rhonda Shear wasn't just her looksShe was damn funny on top of being beautifulThese days Rhonda Shear has a line of own line of women's lingerie, sleepwear, and shapewear through their company Shear Enterprises, LLC based in St. Petersburg, Florida available at www.rhondashear.comI've watched the shows that show up on cable from time to time just to peek at Ms Shear and what she's doing. Even selling lingerie on HSN she's a funny, sexy, vibrant lady
These are just a collection of pinup style pics that I've found online
They remind me of the days sitting on the couch and watching USA Up All Night, laughing with Rhonda Shear and enjoying all kinds of B movies
I was cruising for pics over on Pinup Lifestyle and came across this 21yr old Irish cutie named Miss Laura LaVelle
This is a very new face for me and her look caught my eye... so I'm here to share
from her Facebook Fan Page
Welcome Beautiful People,
My name is Laura LaVelle,
I am 21 years old, Irish and an all round entertainer
I am a burlesque performer, singer, dancer, actress and model. I am currently studying for a BA degree in Voice and Dance in the University of Limerick. I have above average vocal and dance training. I am an aspiring burlesque performer with training in covent garden from the very well know London Company Burlesque Baby.
According to Star Now in the UK she is:
and honestly that's about all there is out there for her..
I want more please
I think this Irish cutie has a great look and is very expressive
I hope she gets out there and has more shots taken
ok so here's the deal. Anna Cas came up with the idea to run a special for the rest of December
IF you follow both My Favorite Pinups and Anna Cas (and she'll check you know), Anna is going to give you a very special present
Wannna know what it is?
Well you have to wait till the end of this post.
First I want you to look carefully at some more examples of what Anna does.
From the Anna Cas Blogspot -
So here is how it works:
You tell me your ideas and wishes - even the crazy ones- about the pinup illustration, we agree on a price and then you make the paypal deposit - so I can guarantee my time for you.
Feel free to send me as much pics of you and reference images as you want so I have a fine idea of your ideas.
It is not a vector work or anything similar, it is hand drawn.
So it is NOT a clone of your face!
You'll be able to see the art work before it is finished so you'll be able to say your 'likes' and 'dislikes'.
The digital package includes:
-High resolution pinUp illustration
-Web-resized pinUp illustration
Now for the fun part.
You go follow Anna on FB/Twitter
Drop her a line, get the pricing for your project then..
Take 30% off.
yes indeed the lady herself said 30% off
I think that is one helluva a deal for a piece of hand drawn art
remember to tell Anna that you follow both of us around the web when you start talking to her about your project
drop her a note AnnaCas@gmail.com and get started.. this won't last forever you know
I am a long time fan of Anna Cas.For those of you reading this, scratching your head thinking "Who is Anna Cas?"Let me tell you a thing or two.Anna Cas is an artist based in Rio de Janeiro, BrazilShe has this knack for taking a picture and turning it into pinup art.Here are just a few examples of what she doesI've never heard of anyone being unhappy with her work and of you look at her sites you'll see plenty of repeat customers, pinups commissioning drawing after drawing.
Even me. I sent Anna one of my favorite pictures of my lovely wife Anne and myself from a wedding we went to. Then I told Anna to go to work. The first two pictures in this set are the result, and before you ask.. yes that is pretty much what I look like in real life, and what my wife looks like too. ain't I a lucky bastard?
now stay tuned folks. Anna and I are talking about running one helluva deal for you to be able to get that Anna Cas treatment
I'd strongly suggest you check out her Facebook and Twitter accounts
It just might come in handy in the next couple of days
