Contemporary Pinups card by Barbara JensonKen Galan recently checked in to give us the scoop on a brand new series he is creating called Contemporary Pinups. The series is devoted to classic style pinups: some in the classic style, some with a modern twist, some that are funny and will make you smile, and according to Galan, some that make you think or tell a story. The series is intended for a mature audience and will include nudity on some of the cards. It will be issued in May under company name Galans Sketch Art Productions.

The base card set will contain 60 to 70 cards; the final number will be determined in early March. Only 1,000 sets will be produced. Of course, one of the main draws will be the sketch cards. To that end, Galan has put together a phenomenal list of talented artists. Thus far, over 80 artists have signed on, including Axebone, Meghan Hetrick, Bill McKay, Charles Hall, Laura Inglis, Rich Molinelli, Rhiannon Owens, Mick & Matt Glebe, Lak Lim, Jim Kyle, and many, many more. The complete list of artists (as of this week) can be found below. Some have signed on for just 5 cards!

One unique feature of Contemporary Pinups is that base card backs will contain an artist’s resume. Galan likens this to an artist’s calling card. It’s also a great way to learn more about the artist whose work you are admiring on the card front.

Contemporary Pinups will come packaged as a complete set with random sketch cards and the sketch cards will be printed on premium stock with silver-foil and gold-foil lettering. The silver-foil version, numbered 1-1,000, will be the variety most commonly found in sets and packaged one per set. The gold-foil version, numbered 1,001-2,000, are mainly Artist Proof cards though about 100 of these will be found in sets. Random sets will contain four-card sketch puzzle sets while others will contain two sketch cards instead of one. Some sets will contain redemption cards for artist sketchbooks.

More information on Contemporary Pinups can be found on Galans Sketch Art Productions’ Facebook page. On the page, you’ll find works in progress, completed cards, links to artists streams, and more. Much of the work posted thus far is really stunning.
