Jackie von Spanks - Bettie Page Christmas

2016.11.19 NJ Comic Expo, Edison, NJ

Jackie von Spanks is an illustrator who is heavily influenced by vintage pinup style of the 1940s - 1960s. Her art is heavily influenced by artists such as Gil Elvgren and Alberto Vargas. Jackie is also a pin-up model and a member of the Luscious Ladies.

When I asked for a Christmas sketch, she immediately smiled and said she know exactly what she would draw... Bettie Page, who is showing Linus how to properly trim a tree.

Page was born in 1923, in Tennessee and became a model after graduating college and moving to San Francisco. Her modeling career led to a Playboy centerfold in 1955 and icon status as a pin-up model.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all...
