Late last year, I was invited to draw a pin-up for a book spotlighting Jetta: a “Judy Jenson” type space-teen created in the 1950’s by the awesome Dan DeCarlo (artist on Betty & Veronica, Josie, Sabrina and many others).
I thought it’d be fun to draw the usual girl pin-up you might have seen in magazines at the time (you know, the ones of girls just sittin’ on cars because girls and cars are cool), but have Jetta sitting on one of the many fun futurey cars DiCalrlo created within the comic. I thought it came out alright.
“The Good Girl Art Library: Dan DeCarlo’s Jetta” is in comic shops this Wednesday and all other book stores shortly thereafter. If you’re a fan of Betty & Veronica or Josie and the Pussycats but prefer a sci-fi spin, I encourage you to look for the book. It contains full Jetta comics (collected for the first time), interviews and a bunch of other rare art. I just found out there’s even a preview of the book HERE. Really fun stuff. Here’s the cover:
Besides all that, the book also features a ton of other pinups by some REALLY incredible artists, most of which are likely posting their Jetta art today. Make sure to check them all out! The full list below:
