Pin-Up Toons a Different Sexy

pin-up toonsThe work of Rion Vernon has been some of my favorite pin-up art for several years. Unlike many other pin-up artists, Rion adds more fun and uniqueness into his pieces by presenting what some call "cartoony" characters instead of realistic portrayals of women. Think Jessica Rabbit versus the Vargas girls. Vernon's website is a adventure in itself that is well maintained and easily navigated. He spotlights rough drawings of new projects, digitized images and standard painted productions. With no official art training, Rion has proven himself a creative force influenced by Tex Avery and Disney and worthy of recognition of his own style. If you Google Rion Vernon you find his work featured in many places and covers everything from hideous creatures to goth pin-up calendars.
