Welcome to Pinuppy.com
In magazines, on lockers, and even on the sides of planes, pinups of titillating women smiling while showing off just the right amount of skin often accompanied lonely soldiers, especially during World War II.
During pinup's heyday, the 1940s and 1950s, it was a more innocent time. Illustrations of hourglass-shaped bombshells teased and pleased American men way before more explicit photos and videos took their place. Over time, the pinup fell by the wayside, however, style goes in cycles. In an age where the girl next door has lost her innocence, a resurgence of pinup artwork reminds us of the giddy pleasures of the tease.
The age of the pinup has come again!
A new generation of pinup artists, including myself, have ushered in this resurgence. I hope you’ll enjoy these newest editions to a long pinup lineage. The pinup continues to look amazing for her age.
About "Hawaiian" Bryan
Contrary to what my nickname would suggest, I’m actually a Canadian. I garnered the nickname "Hawaiian" Bryan because of my tendency to wear hawaiian shirts everyday.
I began creating artwork at a young age as part of an art therapy program I was in when I had cancer. Art was used to take my mind off of the constant barrage of chemotherapy, lumbar punctures, radiation, and other assorted treatments. Since there’s not a lot you can do while lugging around an IV pole all day, I escaped into drawing and painting.
Though I kicked cancer to the curb, I continued with my art. I started drawing cartoons, then I did caricatures of my friends, and eventually I learned that girls were impressed with my ability to draw them. I could actually impress girls. For a teenage boy, this was an important discovery.
I began recruiting friends and girlfriends to pose for pinup. I got to create my artwork, and they, in return, got to document what their bodies looked like in their prime. I did it so well, that they began telling their friends, and they told a few friends… and so on… and so on…
I’ve been doing my pinup work for over 20 years now, and I have some amazing pieces that I’m very proud of.
If you haven’t already, take a few minutes and go through my portfolio of work and tell me what you think.
