"Woof!" (1952), Peter Driben
Today I received a envelope with four postcards from a Ukrainian postcrosser that, like me, loves pin-up art cards. This one is another wonderful Peter Driben drawing for a 'Flirt Magazine' cover (April 1952) and it shows a nice puppy grabbing a hot girl dress (a recurrent theme in pin up world). Thank you very much Anna. This postcard took 8 days to arrive!
Peter Driben (October 22, 1903 - September, 1968), an American pin-up artist, was perhaps one of the most productive pin-up artists of the 1940s and 1950s. Although both Alberto Vargas and Gil Elvgren have extensive catalogues of work, neither came close to the output of Driben. Driben's pinups delighted the American public from the beginning of World War II until the great baby boom of the 1950s.
