Some great pin-up drawings.
Likera defines Pin-up: "Pin-up… What is pin-up actually? Pin-up means different things for different people. The original meaning is a picture for pinning up on a wall. The first pin-ups appeared around 1890, though the term was first attested in 1941."
Classic cool is always cool in my book.
Mariel Clayton's vision of Barbie is closer to Showtime's Dexter than the wholesome pin-up girl everyone is used to.
Koi Koi Koi states: "Mariel Clayton is a self-taught photographer. In an action figures shop in Tokyo she had the vision of the world where all those dolls’ stories happen, and she wanted to visit it and take photos. Her main character is the most famous doll of all times: Barbie, that after throwing away (literally, very often) her fashion victim clothes, become executioner and gives vent to her bound violence on Ken. And, admit it, you’d do it too!"
I have to agree with Mariel. It's freaking funny. Check out her website with some of her other work here: www.thephotographymarielclayton.com
Bin Laden and Hitler deaths both announced on the same day. Coincidence... I think not! All your May 1st are belong to us!
"Globaltvbc: "In a truly odd coincidence Osama Bin Laden and Adolph Hitler apparently died on the same day, well, at least the announcements of their deaths occurred on the same day. Sixty-six years ago it was announced on the evening of May 1, 1945 that Hitler killed himself in his bunker in Berlin. On Sunday night in the USA it was announced that Osama Bin Laden was killed in a firefight with U.S. forces. Keep in mind, the timing of these death announcements are all in Eastern Standard Time."
Time also reports: "Despite the jubilation (mostly) worldwide over the death of Osama bin Laden, the biggest enemy so far this century, it's easy to forget the historic coincidence of the death of the biggest mass murderer of the previous century.
On May 1, 1945, Germany announced that Adolf Hitler was dead, leading to the end of the allied campaign in Europe during World War II. That same date 66 years later, President Obama announced the death of the al-Qaeda leader and international terrorist."
1982 stop-motion short film written, designed and directed by Tim Burton and Rick Heinrichs narrated by Vincent Price. Vincent Price later said that the film was "the most gratifying thing that ever happened. It was immortality—better than a star on Hollywood Boulevard."
