Remembering those who served our country on this Memorial Day.
Iron Man 3 in Retro Pulp Paperback
I found this wonderful paperback book cover via Rockjaw on Tumblr. The artist, Paolo Rivera, was commissioned to create a limited edition poster for the cast and crew of Iron Man 3.
Nice work, Paolo!
Man Men Yourself! The Sci-Fi Version
Taking the Man Men Yourself game one step beyond.
Mad Men Yourself!
To promote the third season of Mad Men, AMC has a new website that allows you to create an avatar in “Mad Men” style. You can dress up as Don, Peggy, Joan, Roger or create someone new! I created myself sharing a drink with Don Draper (of course, darling!). You can save the image as a thumbnail for Twitter, a medium size for your iPhone and a full-size for your desktop.
Just go to www.madmenyourself.com and have fun! You will spend a lot of time playing dress-up.
The illustrations are done by the fabulous Dyna Moe, illustrator extraordinaire and a swell gal.
Be sleek, be stylish, be yourself!

Bride and Groom (Liberty Magazine, 1938)
This beautiful cover illustration is from the June 4, 1938 issue of Liberty Magazine. I only hope to look just as gorgeous on my wedding day!
Perfect Form, Gil Elvgren (1968)
From the master of pin-up art, Gil Elvgren. That horse is wise to stay far away!
Update 5/1/2013: The original image from Flicker disappeared, so I found a replacement from Gil Elvgren’s Pinups on Tumblr.
As we relax on this holiday, let us take a moment and think of the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
