LIL NOTE: I haven’t been browsing on line as much lately due to new work project, but never fear the Friday Link Hooenanny will be back very soon!Â
I had never heard of Louis Shabner until a few years ago, but now I’m hooked! Ol’ Lou was a noted pin-up illustrator. While he did lots of classic fresh face girls in the 50s, it’s his smokey eyed 60s/70s girls that have me transfixed. They look like they were plucked off the cover of a vintage romance novel (or maybe a Bossa Nova record album). Let’s a take a look at Â some of them:
No.1 is a glamorous socialite! Those eyes! Those earrings!
No.2 is a southern belle and she ain’t foolin’ anyone with her little “i’m so innocent” bows.
No.3, is my favorite. What a vixen! (What a neck line…yeowza!) She’s like a European Baroness. And she definitely knows how to solve a problem like Maria.
No.4 is a young starletâ€”and she’s ready for an alpine holiday and fireside drinks.
And finally, No.5Â is a little fire cracker who is soooo pushing you in the pool for giving her man the eye.
I think I’m going to start calling him Lou FABNER….
