I was commissioned by Pretty Nostalgic Magazine to produce 8 swimsuit illustrations, a background and title page for a 3 page spread on the swimsuit evolution for their 8th issue.
The era's selected were 1870, 1890, 1920, 1930, 1940, 1950, 1960 and a special look at the million dollar mermaid.
I also provided them with a small sea horse illustration, a letter on collecting old black and white photos and a little passage about and photo of myself.
1870 - 1960
1950: Million Dollar Mermaid - Esther Williams
Background and title page. The sea was created from from torn water coloured paper.
