A word from Mrs Uncle Sam

I'm creating; not prints, or digital but original ink-coloured pieces! Look here for more: facebook.com/Loudon.Illustrator. I am toying with the idea of crafting a series of pin-up images containing messages not usually associated with the "genre" and still influenced by the charming imagery of artists such as Gil Elvgren.

I am however, not 100% sold on my own ideas, and may be repulsed by them in a short space of time. For example, I am clearly objectifying women and therefore, you could be forgiven for questioning the whereabouts of my own critical judgement. At the same time, I feel if I question myself too much, then nothing will get done outside of commissions frome clients, which is essentially what this is.

 Mrs Uncle Sam is aware of the system 
espoused by her war mongering beau.
I predict a night on the sofa for him.

Sailor girl muttering under 
her breath presumably.
