Persuasive Pin-Up

As The Chive put it: “Artist Mort Kunstler loves guns, women and adventure. A lot.” Before he turned to printed reproductions of his paintings of the American Civil War he was known for commercial illustrations. It’s an American world where all the men are rock jawed, the women well endowed and we’re pretty sure the Confederacy actually won. “America’s Artist” does pulp fiction illustrations at a pulpy peak of corny perfection.

There’s something special about pin-up art. They’re idealized images that are erotic without being graphic. A pin-up is a throwback to a simpler time when a bit of art could be a motivator and not just another X rated click. Arguably pin-ups objectify women but it’s just as true that it’s an art form embraced by modern women who feel empowered by Bad Girl Art.

Author:
Sangfroid's unabashed use of punctuation and grammar has made him a literary standout on the internet. A rising star in the urban/romance/horror/science fiction/Nancy Drew fiction market, Sangfroid is the talk of the local McDonald's. His dog actually ate the first page of his magnum opus "That Foggy Night" and compared it to other great works like the weekly circular for its absorbent qualities.
