    SO, it seems a lot of us share an enthusiasm for...
    tattoos,
    graffiti,
    pinup girls/pinup art,
    skate art/skate culture,
    music art,
    hot rods/rod culture,
    rockabilly,
    punk rock,
    fringe/outsider art,
    etc, etc...

    So let's discuss anything and everything that fits into the categories of deliciously-non-mainstream HERE!

    (This was kinda RickSantorum's idea too).

    Go!

    Here are some Bettie Page prints I got for my b-day.
    They're silver prints from original negs, but I'm not sure if they're indeed original prints.
    My dad is good with photography and he thinks they're in a little too good a shape to be originals, though he said they ARE old.

    I'll be acquiring some more via trade-work in a couple weeks! :cheer:

    These three are a series I did for a tattoo convention exhibit (hence the theme)...

    The man Von Dutch got all this stuff started.... it's such a shame that they turned his name into a cheezy west coast t-shirt and hat trademark :mad:

    I was thinking either water color or felt tip. Excellent, excellent work! The 40's theme just tops it off! :cool:

    Zactly.

    Same thing with Ed Hardy.

    Half the people who wear Von Dutch or Hardy shit don't even know who the fuck these men were or what they did. It's sacrelige.

    Thanks. The vintage, war-era style pinups are my favorites (Petty, Vargas, Elvgren-style, etc). But I have done more progressive/contemporary ones too.

    Here are a couple but I don't like them as much.

    These are colored pencil on vellum...

    The artwork is all really impressive. As for people wearing items when they know nothing about the origins, I fucking hate that. The clothing should be in a locked room and the key is passing a quiz. If you don't know, get the fuck out and go but a tshirt with a star on the front.

    Dev- check your pm, I sent ya one.
