Halloween pin-up Lisa Burton artwork

Happy Halloween 2018

On October 31 the ghouls and goblins return for All Hallow’s Eve — Halloween. For our fans of pin-up art, it’s another great reason to share some new work by today’s talent.

Halloween has long been a go-to for pin-ups. Plenty of photographs of Hollywood actresses holding pumpkins, or models holding a broomstick, have been shot through the decades. And for illustrators and painters, what better reason to show a shapely lady than dressed up as a famous monster (or being chased by them perhaps?)

A pose of a witch is probably the most popular pin-up style for the Halloween holiday. A sorceress wearing a slinky black dress, usually accompanied with a pointed noir hat on her head, and perhaps a peek of the top of her black stockings and/or garter is pretty much the de facto Halloween pin-up witch. Hey, if it works, why mess around with it, right?

Aside from witches, devils and monstresses, there are also the more unusual Halloween pin-ups. While these tend to be more fantasy-based, they also offer the artist a wonderful opportunity to carry forward the pin-up form onto a figure that normally wouldn’t work. And how better to turn the vegetable of the season, the orange pumpkin, into a harvest maiden.
