January is a month
Of cold and ice and sleet,
But don't you worry, brother,
We're turning on the heat!
I love this vintage calender insert painted by Peruvian pin-up artist Alberto Vargas. Dating from 1944, it certainly brightens up the post-christmas blues. Vargas was one of the best of his time, demonstrating a flawless technique usually with watercolours and air-brushing.
The poem is great too, I've been trying to figure out why in place of the 15th there is a funny little squiggle. Any ideas?
I can't quite believe this is my first post of 2012, I had a busy month back, moving house, with an unfortunate non-existent network connection whilst working lots over the festive retail period- has not left a great deal of time for posts. Lots more to come!
Happy January everyone! x
