Pin-Up

"Pin-Up" is copyright  2001 by James G. Mundie. All rights reserved.  Reproduction prohibited.

woodcut, 10.5 x 8.25 inches, 2001

"Pin-Up" was inspired by girlie magazines and calendars of the 1940s and 50s, as well as old copies of magazines like Good Housekeeping that featured adverts for the latest household gadgets and appliances. The woodcut is something of a spoof on that eras ideal of womanhood sexy but domestic. Here the pin-up sex kitten dreamily considers the latest kitchen innovation, much as scantily clad women are used to advertise tools or automotive parts to men.

As a challenge to myself I decided to let my cutting mimic old half-tone printing.

"Pin-Up" was created for an exchange portfolio of the [Baren] Forum on Woodblock Printmaking.
