Thanks for the Birthday wishes, and a pin up update with Miss Eileen Atkinson

Holy Cow n Wow!!!  Thanks everyone for all the awesome Birthday wishes!!!! Thanks Dea for the cool header, and I was quite overwhelmed by all the very nice notes from everybody!!!  Your all the BEST & Just got a chance to read everything today!!!! Work is still very insane,,,, throw in a big Weekend at Monsterpalooza, and my 3 teen daughters all going to Prom make for no free time to blog!!!! One incredibly horrible thing did happen the day after my B-day, I went into a local diner to get some breakfast and the young gal behind the counter asked if I was a SENIOR!!!!!!!! the first thought that crossed my mind was to reach for my six shooter, but I didn’t have it on me!!!  SENIOR!!! that almost ruined the whole weekend but my 8 year old said I looked handsome so all was good again, HAAAA!   Anyways Looks like easier tides are ahead and hope to get back to getting more stuff out of the shed and onto the screen, I don’t have my hard drive hooked up to throw on any art today so stay tuned for more illustrations soon. And now for the PIN UP UPDATE with the fabulous Miss Eileen Atkinson!!! These are more images from our shoot at Thompson Aviation yard from a month or so back and they turned out very, very nice!!! Eileen has one incredible talent and she has a great gift at making every picture a work of art!! These are some new favs and am glad to finally get them up for you all to see.  We are setting up a “Creature from the black Lagoon” shoot and were having the famous swimsuit that Julie Adams wore recreated,,, Can’t wait for this one and we also have a Trek shoot in the works in all three colors of dresses from the original series!!!  Eileen will be in Vegas this weekend at the NHRA Nationals at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway,, be sure to say hi if you see her modeling around the track!  OK have a great rest of the week and will do a big post on Friday,,, job load permitting

        We will drive down on Thursday getting there at night, and stay at a place near the base, so we can get there at a decent time this time.

        Ah shoot, that was way quicker than last year, the WonderFest hotel room deals are all sold out. May take a pass this year. We’ll see. Maybe we’ll just drive down to the museum… not sure yet.

    I used to be in the US Army Airborne Infantry. Do you know how many C-130s I’ve been in? And NONE of them came with a beautiful model in the cargo hold! (I was on the wrong planes!!) 😉

    Seriously, those are great shots as usual. Sorry to hear you got accused of being a senior. However, worse things could happen. Remember, seniors get those cool discounts that the rest of us don’t get. (my dad is at that age where he’s starting to get that discount)

    It’s good to hear things are slowing down on the movie. How much of the process are you actually involved in? Are you pretty much done when the pre-production is finished or do you keep having things to do during the whole process?

    I’m looking forward to seeing more art and more beautiful women. 😀

    I love the C-130,,, it was one of the first model kits I ever built,,, They fly over my house all day out of Edwards… They actually used this particular one in the new A-TEAM movie coming out soon,, as far as Pirates go I’m working with props and with sets so it is really fun and very diverse in what they are having me do!!! Your dad probably feels the same as me!!!! SENIOR!!! UGGGG

      Yeah, you should have seen my dad’s face when my mom and I made sure we reminded him that he qualified for the senior menu when we were at a restaurant a few months ago. (I truly am evil. ;)) Sounds like you’re having a great time working on Pirates. I can’t wait to see it. 😀

    What cool shoot, and I do like it. A black dress and heels in a cargo plane? Works for me.

    The lighting is killer.

    LOVE what you did with that last one…great light and color! Nice job on all of them. Like Eileen’s job on the wardrobe, hair and makeup, too.

    Three proms at once!! Well, if anything will age you ahead of your time, it would be three teenage daughters, HA! Actually, I think you are and will always be one of the youngest people I know, and all your girls help keep you that way.

    That first picture is very 1930’s. Reminds me of all those gangster’s molls Bogart had to deal with in his movies.

    As for you being called a senior, remember that you’re only as old as you feel. Someone once said, “Growing old is mandatory, growing up is optional.”
