The first collection of Jérémie Fleury's pin-up and cheesecake illustrations and drawings. Digital paintings, pencil drawings, watercolors.
From the Foreword by Dean Yeagle:
As a cartoonist myself, I'm always on the lookout for artists whose work engages, delights and inspires me. I've spent most of my career in animation, but most recently I've contributed cartoons to Playboy Magazine, and my work has become focused on 'pinups', of a cartoon variety. I'm always delighted to find an artist whose work I had not been aware of before; work which has style, humor, and personality to it. So I was happy to be introduced to the work of Jérémie Fleury, and to write this preface for this lovely book.
There are many ways of drawing pretty girls, and in some cases, she may be a 'cartoon'. Which is to say, a caricature, an exaggeration. A good cartoon has character, style, and a point of view that you can instantly recognize.
As you page through this book, you'll see that Jérémie has a varied style sometimes closer to 'real life', but most often veering off into fantasy. You'll find mermaids, female warriors and superheroes, princesses, wood nymphs, mythological beings, showgirls, dancers, sci-fi and steampunk girls, pirates and nudes. Look carefully at the images. You'll notice Jérémie's fine talent for color and pose, gesture and costume, with the occasional well-observed animal or machine as well. And always, a fine appreciation of feminine beauty.
Enjoy it! This is 'Good Girl Art', indeed!
