Pete Hawley Master Pin-Up Illustrator

Another pin-up illustrator of swimsuits was Pete Hawley (1916 - 1975) who created a provocative style for Jantzen advertising in the 1940's and 1950's spanning 17 years. He illustrated over 100 magazine ads for swimsuits, lingerie, sweaters and other fashions. Glamoursplash found a wonderful post on Pete Hawley from Leif Peng at Todays Inspiration. We share with you some of Pete's fabulous work for Jantzen, he definitely has an undeniable style.
