More cheesecake!!

I have always loved the good girl art.  From Gil Elvgren and Alberto Vargas to Frank Cho and Dave Stevens.  So a little more eye candy art to finish of my little love fest.  For now.

This fun one mixes sci-fi and humor with a little fetishistic goodness.

From 1989, this one was a little hard to find as it was if I recall, done for one of the smaller publishers.







This sexy number mixes the old style pin ups from the 50’s with a little more modern style and sex appeal.  I don’t care for most of the modern artists that try this kind of stuff.  They border on porn and I don’t care for the mix.  Sexy and fun: yes, lewd and pornographic; no.

The style of art here is the female form at an idealized and romanticized level to be sure, but it is fun and non threatening.  There is something to be said for the kind of picture that I would not be embarrassed for my wife to see.

This was from a comic series in the 1980.  It was published by Eclipse comics, former home of what I called Miracleman, British kids in the 50’s called Marvelman and, if it ever sees print again now that Marvel owns it, Marvelman again.  This was one of the few real standouts artwise from Eclipse at the time.  They had more than their fair share of greats working for them at the time, but most have failed to be remembered.  Zot! being one of the few others.





Another stunner here.  I forget where specifically this one is from except it was the Bettie character from The Rocketeer.








Another fun one from Eclipse.  Created by writer Mark Evanier and artist Will Meugniot.

This is a series I would like to see come back too.



Can’t claim to care much about where this one comes from.  But for the pedants out there it is another Rocketeer selection.

His most famous creation.






Gotta love me some Mr. Monster.  Micheal T Gilbert was largely responsible for this character showing up in comics in the 80’s.  A HUGE amount of fun while it lasted.









Lastly, this gem.  Naughty, fun and sexy all in one very stylish package.  A very retro feel that invokes the 1950’s very effectively.

Ok.  enough of the girls.  Dave Stevens was a fabulous artist that deserves a chance with any art fan.

If any of what you have seen here appeals to you, check out the book Brush With Passion; The Art of Dave Stevens.  You wont regret it.
