Garvey's pin-up art tends to be of a modern glamour theme, some of it x-rated.

At the age of 12, he found himself holding a copy of Playboy magazine. Unlike many of us at that tender age when confronted with a girlie mag, his attention was not focussed on the naked models, but on the Vargas painting of the issue. Like so many other artists, the Vargas girl changed his view on art, albeit in Keith’s case a lot earlier in life than most. Whatever thoughts went through his head at this point, the comic characters disappeared to be replaced by images of the female form. Keeping the magazine hidden from his parents, the girls in the magazine were not ignored, they became the models for his early practice of drawing women using the Vargas image as a datum line for his efforts.
