Wel­come... to a cracker of an is­sue

ImagineFX - - Editor’s Letter -

Pin-up is all about at­ti­tude – and I think you’ll agree that our sassy roller-derby cover star has it in spades. I loved work­ing with artist Loopy­dave on this im­age, and I still smile at the lit­tle comedic touches that he added to the paint­ing. See if you can spot them. Turn to page 58 to see how the artist cre­ated our hero­ine, and to find out who Skinny Al is…

From page 46 we cel­e­brate the artists be­hind the most beau­ti­ful fe­male paint­ings in the uni­verse. The usual sus­pects take a bow – step up Adam Hughes, Serge Bi­rault and So­rayama to name a few, but there’s also some new artists bring­ing a fresh ap­proach to the genre.

Else­where, we delve into the world of tat­toos. Tat­too art has taken a fas­ci­nat­ing jour­ney from be­ing the out­sider’s choice of re­bel­lion, to be­ing a recog­nis­able art form. Find out more about this per­ma­nent art ex­hi­bi­tion on page 20. Oh, and have you had a tat­too done of your favourite artist’s work? Or got a tat­too of a piece of art from the pages of Imag­ineFX, per­haps? Let us know! Send in your pho­tos and tell us why you had to have some­thing for­ever adorned on your body.

As al­ways, let me know what you think about this edi­tion – my email ad­dress is be­low. I might not be able to re­spond to you all, but I al­ways love hear­ing your views, so drop me a line to share your thoughts and tell me about the art you cre­ated af­ter be­ing in­spired by what you’ve seen on these pages.
