Black Pin-Up Girls

I love 1940s style pin-up girls. Actually I’m crazy for anything from that era. It’s so cool to find this artist, her name is Zahira Kelly and she does African American pinups. Aren’t they hella cool? The young lady is unbelievably talented. She does custom work, too and I’d love to have one of myself. They’re only $75.00, maybe I’ll get one for my birthday! 😀

The one in yellow reminds me of my mama. She used to wear her hair like that, and it’s absolutely gorgeous. I think one of these would be perfect for the cover of my current WIP.

  1. These are AWESOME!! Love the whole pin-up girl look from the forties. I want one of these pictures for myself. Erica B. I agree with you 100%…the Vargas Girls were fabulous.

    I also adore Betty Page (may her soul rest in peace) and Dita Von Teese. I’m dying to see Dita live. I know there is a black female burlesque troupe in NYC that performs all over the city. I can’t remember what their name is though.
