I received a really cool surprise in the mail the other day. It was a copy of “Bombshell – The Pin-Up Art of John Gladman” from Schiffer Publishing. John Gladman is an award winning photographer that specializes in creating really slick, traditional looking pin-up art combined with some really unique, vintage style post work that really brings out the true character of each of his models.

I’ve been seeing a lot of John’s work turning up online these days, but had never really taken a deep dive until receiving this book. He has been gaining quite a bit of attention lately with his vintage style post work, that is reminiscent of the pin-up ads and calendars of the early days.

What really stands out in John’s work is the great attention he pays to capturing modern models in very traditional & elegant poses that make you question if you are looking at modern work or something from the 40’s and 50’s by the old masters.

Definitely a “must have” coffee table book for any artist or collector. I might also add that the book includes some stunning photos of Mosh! Always a bonus in my opinion!

In addition to pin-up, John also does other types of portrait work with the same level of vintage flair. His portfolio has some really awesome family, automotive and military style themes.
