david downton (b. kent, uk 1959).


harumi yamaguchi (b. japan, 1941): Yamaguchi came out with a book in 1978, published by Parco, entitled Harumi Gals, in which Yamaguchi depicted pin-up girls with impeccable makeup that show a timeless statement of beauty, very much relevant and resonant with today’s girl as it would be in 1980.


joe eula (b. norwalk, usa, 1924; d. kingston, usa, 2004): “I was considered the fastest pencil in the field, a mannequin need only do her turn down the catwalk at a fashion show, and voila – an illustration.” (joe eula)
