Monster Pin-Up Girls

UPDATE: There's currently a list of 10 Monster Pin Up Girls on Buzzfeed, and we really want this to climb the social ladder, go viral and be seen by as many people as possible. So please help us out by blogging, reflagging, tweeting, liking, sharing rebuzzing and +1ing this as much as you can. Lets see how far we can spread this! You have your orders, now fly, my Twinions! FLY!!

Peter and I had this idea to make a deck of cards featuring Monster Pin Up Girls! So we got to work crafting a list and making sketches.

The idea is to post the girls here and on my tumblr blog until I have almost all of them done. Then maybe do a kickstarter campaign to fund the cards, some prints, postcards and a nice art book.

Below are some of the finished art. Whatttayathink so far?!?

Here's the current design for the back of the cards.

    I love your work. But you already knew that.

    As a HUUUUGE fan of classic monster movies, I look forward to the rest of the set, and hope you plan to think outside the box and include such characters as:

    The Invisible (Wo)Man
    (Mrs.) Creature from the Black Lagoon
    (Queen) Kong

    But don’t forget the lesser-known but ever-popular Wasp Woman, 50-Foot Woman, and She-Wolf of London.

    I can’t wait to see who you pick as your joker. Can you use Roscoe-in-drag, or does DC own him now?

    Happy West Coasting.

    Great suggestions, Rob! I can tell you that Jekyll and Hyde, pictured above will serve as our Jokers. We will be including the She-Wolf, the Creature and the 50 foot woman, along with some other surprises.

    Hey guys, really nice works! What do you think about the idea of adding more monsters ladies from other cultures, not only pop-culture? There are crazy things in Brazilian, Mexican, Japanese and Germanic culture. Anyway, nice works!

  4. Fantastic work, love the pin up designs on the cards!! These would surely be a hit!

  5. I think it looks great, and I think my palls over at http://unitedcardists.com/ would like to help you make this deck a reality. You’d have access to hundreds of minds/collectors as you go through the creatvie process. Not to mention we have artists and deck designers who have successfully pulled this off in the past. Swing by!

    Thanks for the heads up! I’ll definitely check it out!

  7. Ben says:

    Amazing stuff! I love them all… and would like to echo Rob’s request for an Invisible Woman and the 50 Foot Woman.

    And if you need more monsters to flesh out your series, maybe you could go with some of the old Japanese monster movies like Godzilla, etc.

  8. Bobby Timony says:

    Thanks Ben! The invisible woman and the 50 foot woman will definitely be included. Not sure about Godzilla…

    Because I want you to take my money!

    Not yet. I have plans though.
