The Art and Models of Pin Up Artist Gil Elvgren

Gillette (Gil) Elvgren (March 15, 1914 – February 29, 1980). My favorite pin up artist. His paintings and models were sexy as hell but not overly sexual or ‘dirty’. Something of the hot girl next door, and g’damn he could paint a nyloned leg.

More Posters from Ghana

I’ve posted a bunch of these before and they never fail to amaze me. The deal here is that primarily in Ghana and other parts of Africa there exist traveling cinemas that will roll into your village on a flat bed truck, throw up a makeshift screen and show movies for a small fee. These posters are their advertisement. Hand painted on canvas, board or anything they can get their hands on, they are weird, beautiful and total design genius. This group is mostly African films w/ a few bootleg US productions thrown in.

New York Dolls – 1st LP Outtakes

New York Dolls (The 1st LP) released in July of 1973 received widespread acclaim from critics when it was first released but sold poorly. The band toured the United States to promote the record, but they were difficult to market and developed a reputation for rock-star excesses. Despite its commercial failure, the album was an influential precursor to the 1970s punk movement and has since been named in various publications as one of the greatest debut records in rock and one of the greatest albums of all time. The photography by Toshi has become (somewhat) iconic. Many bands would emulate the Dolls style over the years (and still do) but no LP has really had the punch of seeing these 5 men in drag on an album released 43 years ago. It’s the outtakes that are even more interesting, somehow even glammier and more shocking. And who is kid in the back cover photos and where is he today?
