Q: How do I buy more Spotlights? I'm new to the site, and I've actually already bought some, but I've forgotten how to do it!

A: Do you know?

Probably my favorite modern artist, Gil Elvgren, created some of the best pin-up art of the 50s-60s. He is most recognized for his pin-up calendar artwork for the Brown & Bigelow company and Coca-Cola ads during that time period. The book Elvgren, His Life and Art, was a limited edition book sold a few years ago. It highlights his career and is full of behind the scenes photos of him working. The best part of the book is that it shows the models that were used as the basis for each of his paintings. It's interesting to see what the models looked like in comparison to the paintings he completed. I am also a collector of the vintage Elvgren calendars as shown in the background of this photo.
