If You Want Your Fanny Tanned~!



Everyone knows those famous little bare buns.  Did you know that was the work of Joyce Ballantyne?




Joyce did lots and lots of art, everything from paper dolls to pin-us!  Wonderful pin-ups like these:  










Even advertising pin-ups the women would like!  Oh, yes, and some guys, too.



Here's an evocative number from a tire ad!

Here's Joyce celebrating her accomplishments in her later years:




She was sometimes miffed that ALL anyone ever wanted to talk to her about was the Coppertone Girl-- who, by the way, was modeled by Joyce's own daughter!

Naturally, that ad has been copied and parodied a million times or more, like this one Kylie Minogue and Company did:




But with the appearance of thongs and whatnot, some women actually want tanned bottoms!





Which was the idea behind this  "DISCIPLINE & DESIRE" WolfieToon from 2008:




Now to round this entry out (heh!) a couple more bare beach bums burning!



Ooh, here's a familiar pair!

    1. Thank you, Minelle! I'm a fan of a lot of the great pin-up painters; some of the lesser-known ones even did a spanking illustration for "legitimate" magazine stories now and then!

  2. That was very interesting little piece of knowledge. My husband loves her pin up girls. A little butt burning is always a good thing.

  3. I especially like the last photo, but then I'm a big fan of both Chelsea Pfieffer and Amber "Pixie" Wells. Nothing like a well-tanned bottom...

  5. But I don't like burnt home fries. Oh, you said home fires, that's different. Never mind. ;-)

    I love her drawings; thanks for posting them. I didn't see all of those before. Sorry, Joyce, but the Coppertone girl is really cute. It could be because I grew up with her and that little dog. Nice summertime post, Wolfie.

    1. Home fries, mmmmmmmmmm... Thanks, Kaki, glad you enjoyed 'em! I find great joy and inspiration in the old pin-up paintings!

      EVERYONE loves the Coppertone Girl! "Tan, don't burn!" (We could appropriate that slogan here, maybe!!) I'm sure JB was proud of her, too but just wanted more of her work known!
