The Michael Landefeld gallery at the The Pin-up Files has just gone live!

Michael Landefeld is best known for his beautiful pin-up girls, whose fusion of retro charm and modern spice make them instantly recognizable and known throughout the art world.

Michael's pin-up girls can be seen on everything from tee shirts to stickers to rolling papers. His girls have even shown up as tattoos and boat art. Most recently, members of the Armed Forces have used Michael's military inspired pin-ups as Unit Combat Patches and even decals on Black Hawk Helicopters.

New Look for The Pin-up Files

As a 10th birthday present we've built a new template for The Pin-up Files main site. We thought this would be even better than lingerie.

It's been launched today but only applied to a few areas and galleries so far. This was done because we are incredibly impatient.

It's going to take a few months of very hard work for the changeover to be completed before the eyes of a watching world and for a while it's going to be a mixture of old, new and a modicum of chaos .. but we love that. Stockings will get laddered along the way but we'll be firing our bullet bras and our aim is true!

This pin-up fell out of the screen and onto the ice rink we keep in the coding vaults so it's not straight forward by any means. Luckily we had warned her in advance that this might happen so she was wearing her skates.

Strange things may happen, but the website LOVES it and has gone very coy!!

The work goes on...
