Mel Ramos and his pin-up parody illustrations

Recognised as one of the main representatives of the Pop Art movement in the 1960's, Mel Ramos's well known illustrations depict pin-up girls glamourously draped over or within commercial objects like a garnish, reminiscent of the suggestive advertising of the 50s. His work aims to point out the ridiculousness and incompatibility of the two subjects used frequently by the advertising industry of the past and the irrelevance of their association.

"I make sure that my pictures are not too erotic and that they always have a trace of humor. I make sure they are ‘in good taste.’ Either you understand it or not." - Mel Ramos

I like how he draws in all the tan lines. Cute. And Freud would have had so much fun with all the suggestive phallic objects.
