The Target--A Second Look

I received a comment from the web-ed of the Chicago Spanking Review about my last post, which I called, "The Target".  He pointed out that it looked a lot like a recreation of a drawing done by pin-up artist Gil Elvgren.  He was also nice enough to send a copy of the drawing along.

First, here's the photo I used.  I had cropped it a bit for the previous post, but here it is in full:

Next, here's the pin-up postcard by Elvgren, titled Near Miss:

What do you think?  To me, with the exception of the positioning of the right arm, I'd have to say that the web-ed has a keen eye (not to mention a keen memory) and is right on the money....

I have to agree with Web_Ed of the C.S.R. that the image you posted is no doubt inspired by the Gil Elvgren "Near Miss".

I am a big fan of Elvgren and caught the similarity right away.

The particularly interesting thing to note is that this a recent reproduction/inspiration. The clue to this is based on the current pop-cuture fascination with zombies; as this is a zombie pinup. Look closely and you will see the gory effect on her right arm (thus the intentional difference).
