A great post on the legendary (if not slightly lecherous) Gil Elvgren with the photos he took for reference side-by-side with his paintings: www.underpaintings.blogspot.com/2009/12/defining-beauty-gil-elvgren.html

1st image: “The Right Touch,” 1958. I love that she’s seated on a drawing horse!

2nd: Model and “The Right Touch”

3rd: Janet Rae models for “Inside Story (Overexposure),” 1959. I dig that she’s seated on a drawing horse while posing but not in the painting!

4th: Janet Rae models for “Taking a Chance (No Bikini A toll),” 1962.

Hello tumblr! I imagine if you follow us on here you already know about what an awful weekend we’ve had. Our van was taken outside one of our homes containing all of our equipment.. Naturally we are devastated. 5 years worth of collecting amps and instruments, Marcia’s dresses and shoes, the boy’s suits and of course the van itself has all been harshly taken away and we have nothing. It’ll take a long time to get back on our feet again but if there’s one thing that could make this better, it’s the overwhelming support that you have shown us. Your generosity has given us a little faith that for every scumbag there are 15,000 other people who are kind, generous and thoughful. To top it all off, the Kingston kings Banquet Records got in touch with us as soon as they heard. They have set us up a donation page and arranged a fundraiser which we will be playing on the 20th May. Click the title for details and watch this space. With or without our instruments we are still THE SKINTS and we will not be beaten by this. All gigs are going on as scheduled, see you there, and remember to keep ordering from our Merch Store!

If you know me personally, you’ll probably know that I’m a big fan of all things pretty - especially cosmetics and beauty products.

I’ve held off on posting review/how-to posts on my main Tumblr because A. I don’t use it very much and B. I don’t want to start spamming those lovely followers…

Children are very well dressed nowadays. I dont know whether to offer them wine and cigars. How am I supposed to know whether or not to offer them these things
