We are very pleased to present the second cover of Retro Loely No.4, our New Model Cover Model Search promotion where both covers feature models who have never graced the cover of any print publication.
This cover is noteworthy in that it was selected from among submissions by those artists in our Pinup Syndicate. This group is a very serious body of artists who've been honing their craft and have shown us consistently excellent work. They are the artists who first shared our vision of what a magazine devoted to the best possible presentation of pinup photography should be. This meant all the material was first rate in execution and quality.
The pool of imagery represented a wide spectrum of pinup styles and several images struck the judges, a few began to take the lead, this one by Atomic Cheescake Studios had gained all along the way the most feedback. When it came time for voting it also accumulated the most point value. The gal featured, Kelly, is not a pinup model looking to begin a career modeling fashions or anything like that. No, Kelly tasked the talented Stacey Barich of Atomic Cheescake Studios to produce some images for her husband. The shots they did were intended for one person not the thousands who will now have her front and center on their copies of Retro Lovely No.4.
