Gil Elvgren and Janet Rae Pinups

If you're a fan of illustration, photography, and 1950s pinup art, then you will love this post.

Posted on flickr by the model's (Janet Rae) son, is a collection of over 75 pinup paintings featuring Rae by artist Gil Elvgren. While this in itself would be blog-worthy enough, the original black and white studio photograph from which the artist worked accompanies each illustration. It's phenomenal to be able to see the photos and paintings side-by-side...a rare collection indeed.
