Grapefruit Moon Gallery has recently acquired an exciting collection of original pin-up art by mid-century illustrator and cartoonist Eugene Mumaw (1930 - 2006). A lifelong resident of Muncie, Indiana, Mumaw produced theatre posters for over thirty years, often in an eclectic mixed media, three dimensional style, as well as working in cartoons and pin-up illustrations. A few years ago a collection of letters to him were auctioned off and the writers included famous cartoonist such as Milton Caniff, Bill Mauldin, Walt Kelly, Hank Ketchum and Mort Walker.Mumaw's pin-up girls are highly stylized, beautifully rendered, and have a great look. ITEM: This is a vintage and original illustration art piece by Eugene Mumaw. A bold and vivid pin-up work, it depicts a cheeky beach beauty in a bikini. Mumaw employs a very cartoon-like style to his pin-up girls by using bright colors, bold lines, exaggerated facial expressions, and humor. A superb illustration from the heyday of pin-up art and a must-have addition to any pin-up lover's collection! Measures 10" x 20" on illustration board, hand signed by the artist. Guaranteed to be 100% vintage and original from Grapefruit Moon Gallery.
