Welcome... to a cracker of an issue
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.
