George Petty was one of the top "cheesecake" illustrators of the 30s and 40s, known for his undeniably charming and sexy pinup illustrations and their irresistible white-toothed grins.

His work earned him the term "Petty Girls" to describe these carefully airbrushed characters and their brilliant smiles and sexy poses. These drawings are undeniably kitschy and beautiful, capturing a kind of nostalgia no one else quite can.
