Dirty DIY Pin-Up Girls Re-Imagined as Fantastical Heroines

When artist David Jablow came across Do It Yourself Doodler, a vintage ’60s notepad filled with pages upon pages of the same suggestively drawn pin-up girl (sans breasts, mouth, or nether regions like some kind of pornographic vintage Mad Lib), he decided to ignore its obviously dirty intentions and turn it into a work of art. Or rather, several works of art — in Jablow’s drawings, which we spotted over at Visual News, that same pin-up girl is incarnated as everything from an astronaut to a giant robot controller to a lady Samurai ninja spying on troop movements. Click through to check out a few of Jablow’s imaginations, and if that’s not enough for you, pick up a copy of Jablow’s Do It Yourself Doodler book, guaranteed to make for hours of fun.
