Pin Up style, or pictures of models or actresses whose mass-produced pictures were intended for informal display, i.e. meant to be "pinned-up" on a wall, gained its wide-range popularity during the First World War. For the soldiers, they were a representation of an ideal beautiful woman and symbolized ones waiting for them at home.
Why Pin Ups? As I am a big fan of Gil Elvgren, and make many illustrations in erotic style, I've wanted to make this artwork in a similar style to those of Elvgren's. I did not copy him; of course, - girls on my posters are more discreet and serious, as they represent the Armed Forces.
In this deck, I decided to combine Pin Up style with military style of current Ukrainian army - one of the strongest and most advanced armies of Eastern Europe. My characters are women of modern war - harsh and relentless, thus I tried to show more their force and restraint (which is inherent to the classic Pin Up style). Both on the box and on the cards, I have illustrated modern weapons and symbols. Deck features:
