Adam Hughes might be best known for his covers of Wonder Woman and Catwoman.  His stylized renderings of women bring the art of the "Good Girl" artists  like Petty, Vargas and Elvgren into a modern venue. Is it empowered cheesecake? Sure, but for all the voices shouting about what women want there are even more that are fans of Harley Quinn, Catwoman, and all the other Bad Girls drawn Good.


I’m not badI’m just drawn that way.” – Jessica Rabbit

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. Rockabilly chic, Suicide Girls, Dita Von Teese; The pin-up is out there and alive in performances, photography, fashion music and tattoos.

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.
