Where did this pin-up thing come from?

If you hadn’t noticed I’ve kind of gone a bit on a pin-up style art kick and because there are always people out there that’ll try and take credit for whatever it is you do – I wanted to share what got me back into doing them.

I found this sketch book from when I was studying my Masters; we’re in the middle of moving house so it’s dragged up a whole host of things that I’d forgotten about.

The sketch book was pretty simple really, in fact, a cheapy from The Works, but it fit the purpose of my needs at the time.

I was looking at what sort of animals I saw when looking at different people and drawing them in the same pose next to the picture that inspired them.

It was an interesting idea at the time and something I’d like to do again. I think they’d be good for warm up sketches and practise purposes.

I’m pleased I found them though because they gave me a bit of a reminder of my own art style and the direction I am now heading in, just thought it would be something fun to share with everyone here.

Have any of my readers ever had any ‘revelations’ like this? Reminders of directions they’d once walked in, that have prompted them to ‘get back on track?
