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.
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!
“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.
Update – I’m offering this as a free digital wallpaper. Check it out!
I occasionally root through all the sketches I’ve amassed throughout the years to see if there’s anything that gives me inspiration. Once and a while, I’ll find something in that sketch bin that just begs to be finished.
Yesterday, I pulled out a two minute sketch of a little astronaut, holding a tray with a burger and fries, looking for all the world like he was traveling by jet-pack in the same way that carhops of a bygone age would have gone by roller-skates. You see that sketch below.
Anyway, I spent a few hours turning this little character, who I’d previously named “L’il Astor,” into a Googie / retro-futuristic restaurant sign.
Ken Plume and Dana Snyder discussed the print on the most recent Snydecast at about 40 minutes in. Much discussion on possible familial connections between Dana and I. There aren’t any.

Here’s my latest pinup. Major mid-century modern influence here, with the Eames Chair (Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman). I painted this entirely in Photoshop.
