Entry Description: This series was inspired by pinup illustrations of the 1940’s and 50’s. I thought it would be a great twist to comment on diversity in the fashion world by featuring an African-American model as the pinup – a rarity for that time era and a fitting role for supermodel Veronica Webb. Since capitalizing on her fame as the first African-American woman to sign a major cosmetics contract (Revlon), Veronica has gone on to become a television show host, an essayist, a screenplay writer, a film and television actress, a philanthropist and a mother.
