grocery store pin up cartoon style falling oranges

Original Artwork by Jason Snyder. “Clean-Up in Produce!” This is a colorful digital pin up design of a dark haired beauty having a bit of an accident in the fruit section of her local grocery store. Featuring the classic styling of 1940s and 1950s pinups combined with a cartoon / comic style, similar to Archie Comics and Betty Boop.

The character style was inspired by a variety of mid-century art styles. Archie Comics artist Dan DeCarlo certainly is a factor here, as he is one of my favorite comic creators. The risque comics of Playboy Magazine and the naughty pin ups of Art Frahm also provided some of my spark. I don’t think I can go quite as risque as Art Frahm though.

Pinball Pin up

This is a pin up I created a few years ago. Again, fitting in genres that I love, this one features a pinball machine that never existed, but that I feel should have. “Forbidden Planet” (1956) is one of my favorite films, and I love the art direction. Especially the alien interiors, the flying saucer and of course, Robbie the Robot. It’s a precursor to Star Trek in terms of tone, and takes plenty of inspiration of Shakespeare’s “The Tempest”. So yeah, worth a watch. And definitely worth a pinball machine.

As for my pin up girl, I styled her after Dan DeCarlo of Archie Comics fame.

galaga pin up pinup
This is one of my earliest pin ups. I recently looked at it with fresh eyes and realized it needed a few tweaks. So we’ll call this “Galaga Girl” Version 2.0. Its formal name is “Single Credit Galaga Queen”. This dark but colorful pin up art print was inspired by 1980s pop culture. My pin up subject is a wiz on Namco’s Galaga. She’s filled the high-score screen with her initials, but don’t bother asking her name. She’ll never tell you. This is a love letter to my favorite game, and my favorite place to be growing up.

Jilluminati is my modern tribute to the classic ‘horror host’. A horror host pinup is something I’ve been wanting to create for a while. I’m working on a comic book concept with her, as a late night tv host. Behind her, painted on the walls are two generations of sexy horror hosts, Vampira and Elvira. I hope to post more of the concept art for my comic soon.


Here’s a recent theremin pinup that I added to Jetpackjason.com. It’s titled, “Theremins are Sexy”. And hey, they are, right? Also, I created a few items for my Zazzle Store

My Star Trek pinup titled, “Am I In Your Chair, Captain?”
This illustration was created entirely in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. You can find a time-lapse video of its creation here.


Another new pinup, in preparation for Pinupalooza. This one features some original neon, also created by me. I love neon, and I’ve been looking for the opportunity to include it in a pinup.
I’m exhausted. I’ve never done a show before and I’m stressing trying to get everything done. I am really looking forward to it though. I hope it’s the first of many conventions that I’ll get to take part in.


Here’s a new pinup illustration. It’s bright, compared to my usual fare. I like the slightly more painted feel that it has. It’s also reminiscent of an illustrated travel poster from the 1920s or 1930s. Most of my pinups are genre specific. One for tiki, one for a video game, one for a pinball game, and so on. It’s nice to focus on a more generic subject once in a while. Just a beautiful woman getting sun on the diving board.
Remember, Pinupalooza this Saturday in Orlando!

Here’s a new print that I finished up in preparation for Pinupalooza. Actually, truth be told, it’s an old print that I never finished because I wasn’t sure where to go with it. I finally figured it out and got it finished. It’s a little different style than my usual. A little more cartoony, perhaps. I like the overall look though. Click to make larger.

Anyone who knows me, knows of my obsession with the history of the airline industry, particularly Pan Am. I’m proud to say that my interest in the advertising art and style of the jetset years began well before every department and discount store were selling poster reproductions. Here’s my small contribution to the style in the form of a Pan Am pinup.

“Would You Like A Jelly Baby?” – Original art by Jason Snyder.
An illustration I finished recently. I’ve been obsessed with retro candy packaging recently. This is the Jelly Babies packaging used during parts of the 1970s and 1980s. Also, I couldn’t help throwing references to the Tardis. My wife suggested that I indicate the tail end of Tom Baker’s scarf on the table. Maybe a 2.0 version of this, just for Who geeks.
This was done completely in Illustrator and Photoshop. No 3d software was used in the final composition, though I did use Sketchup to create the perspective reference.
