Nostalgia is the longing for a life that never truly was, a world made better through the filter of time. Brett Parson brings us back to those simpler, sexier times with his playfully seductive retro pinups and portraits.
Drawing inspiration from a wide assortment of dubious sources — saucy B-movie posters, seductive vinyl album covers, and even the hot-rod scene — Mr Parson delivers a deliciously subversive low-brow art experience with a truly original flair.
Whatever the provenance, the result is a timeless collection of cartoon cuties with an irresistible mix of playful innocence and lascivious intentions.
Some of Brett’s more recent images are available at his hosted gallery.
