We have two brand new calendars to
The American Beauties calendar is a collection of retro inspired pinups by world-renowned artist Greg Hildebrandt. This calendar features 13 exquisitely rendered paintings that harken back to the days of pulp noir yet with a decidedly modern take.
The American Beauties by Greg Hildebrandt pinup calendar was created by world-renowned Artist and illustrator Greg Hildebrandt. Hildebrandt gained international recognition for creating the original Star Wars Poster, the record setting 1976, ‘77 & ‘78 Tolkien Lord of the Rings calendars and of course The American Beauties Pinup Series.
Featuring a collection of 13 exquisitely rendered retro-inspired pinup paintings with a decidedly modern take, The American Beauties pinup calendar is like no other. While the series gives a subtle nod to the masters of pinup such as Vargas and Elvgren, Hildebrandt has taken the genre and created something uniquely his own. Each painting goes beyond surface level cheesecake to tell a story that is both rich and compelling. American Beauties harkens back to the days of the pulp noir classics. Chock full of powerful sexy women, shady characters lurking in the shadows and the occasional mad scientist! Each image invites the viewer to go deeper, to become a part of the story, not just as an outside observer but as an active participant of the narrative. As an added bonus, the American Beauties calendar features quotes from famous starlets, actors and pinup models that are sure to make you laugh and think. This calendar is destined to be a collector’s item that will surely hang on walls long after the year is out.
Greg and Tim Hildebrandt, known as the Brothers Hildebrandt, are American twin brothers who worked collaboratively as fantasy and science fiction artists for many years.
They produced illustrations for some of the most influential comic books, movie posters, children's books, posters, novels, calendars, advertisements, and trading cards of a generation.
Presented in this new 2023 calendar are 13 of those original Greg and Tim Hildebrandt masterpieces.
In 1975 Greg and Tim Hildebrandt answered the whispers of fate in the form of an open call from Ballantine Books to illustrate the 1976 Lord of the Rings calendar. The results were nothing short of astounding. Rich and lavish, the illustrated Tolkien art of the Brothers Hildebrandt raised the bar and set a new standard for fantasy art in the 1970’s. Their record setting calendars of 1976, ’77 and ’78 introduced a new generation to the words of JRR Tolkien and gave them their first visual of Hobbits, Orcs and Middle Earth. These genre defining works have become timeless with age and have adorned the walls of countless people for decades. Presented in this new 2023 calendar are 13 of those original Greg and Tim Hildebrandt masterpieces. Let the work of the Brothers sweep you away and take you on a journey with Gandalf, Bilbo and the rest of the fellowship of the ring as they make their way across the Misty Mountains to the heart of Mount Doom.
