This Artist Draws Male Superheroes In A Classic Pin-Up Style (10 Pics)

Published 4 years ago

Most of you have probably seen posters of pin-up girls that were incredibly in the mid-20th century before. Well, Portland-based artist David Talaski-Brown decided to do a different take on classic pin-up style posters by recreating a handful of superheroes in the same style.

In an interview with Bored Panda, David said he started working on his superhero series around 2 years ago. “I was going to table at my first convention and I felt like I had nothing to sell that people would want to buy,” said the artist. “I had an idea of illustrating popular male superheroes in the pinup classic style akin to Elvgren and Vargas.”

David says that what makes pin-up appealing for him is that it walks the line between erotica and comedy. “It’s sexy enough to make you blush and ridiculous enough to not take it seriously. Basically, erotica you can hang on your walls and still have mom over,” jokes the artist.

The artist saw the project as a great opportunity to create art for nerds that are attracted to men. He said that there’s always loads of art depicting scantily clad women at comic conventions so he figured he’d give MCU’s “hottest hunks” the same treatment.

He started by recreating some of the more popular superheroes like Thor and Captain America, and soon started creating ones people requested, like Loki and Bucky Barnes. “I most recently stepped out of the MCU and took on Momoa’s Aquaman because how couldn’t I? I mean, look at him,” said the artist. He also added that he has ideas for more Marvel and DC universe superheroes in the future.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
