Charlie Roberts loses the Comix Connection T-shirt to pin-up artist extraordinaire Olivia De Berardinis!

Here's the final artist that my friend Charlie Roberts got to photograph at the San Diego Comic-Con holding a swell Comix Connection T-shirt... the greatest living pin-up artist, Olivia DeBarardinis! WARNING! LINK IS NOT FOR KIDS!

Olivia was so enamored of our shirt that SHE ASKED CHARLIE IF SHE COULD KEEP IT! Naturally Charlie gave it to her... another replacement shirt will be sent along to you Chollie! Just think, at this very moment Olivia could be in her studio painting another masterpiece wearing our way-cool Comix Connection Geek Chic Wear™ T-shirt! How cool is that? Thanks Charlie for the great photos, and thanks Ms. DeBerardinis!

No one even comes close to Olivia's airbrush work... Vargas has been dead for decades and he's one of the few that might be considered better.

What about the Petty girls?

Petty is actually my favorite pinup artist, but his stuff was "cartoony" in that the porportions were heavily exaggerated, while Vargas' stuff trended towards the more "realistic" exaggeration, thus I feel Olivia inherits the mantle of Vargas... did that make sense?

Oooh, and I like Earl Macpherson's stuff, too, but that was more pastel-sketchy.
