We're a little fanatical about pinup around here.
It's fun when artists can combine pinup art with comic book and geek culture. We've covered artists such as Erica Hesse and the 1800s burlesque pinup of Michael Dooney and we're big fans of Baltimore Comic-Con staple Paigey.
Maria Danalakis brings something fresh and cool to the genre. (Is sexy and flirty also allowed to be cute? Looks like it!) She is a designer of children's wear and has an extensive gallery of greeting and birthday cards. She takes that talent for clean, simple and playful design into her pop culture artwork as well.

Luckily for me, among the merchandise was a sticker sheet (seriously, how cool is that?) of my favorite DC ladies - pinup style. Easy decision. And I came away much happier than I did from the T-shirt purchase. Now I have to figure out where to put my stickers ... I don't have a trapper-keeper anymore.

I'm not sure I want to know you.
