Lisa Petrucci Draws ’em Kuties

Kickass Kuties: The Art of Lisa Petrucci

Lisa Petrucci is obsessed with pin-up gals from the 50s and 60s — not the mega-stars but the unknown ladies who appeared in low-budget nudie flicks. Her work is also inspired by a healthy dose of kitsch and crafts from that era. In February of 2009 her first book will be hitting the shelves and it can be ordered in advance on Amazon:

Kickass Kuties: The Art of Lisa Petrucci

“Walk through a sparkling world of make-believe, a cotton-candy-colored dream world of hearts, flowers, and switchblades, of dewy-eyed cartoon pinup gals, kutie-pie kowgirls, leopard-skinned sweeties, hatchet-wielding honeys, and the cuddliest devil kitties Hell has to offer. The art of Lisa Petrucci is a honey-coated maelstrom of contradictions–the innocence of lost Americana, childhood nostalgia, and traditional feminine iconography all presented with a rebellious spirit. Kickass Kuties: The Art of Lisa Petrucci is the first collection of the artist’s remarkable catalog, a hallucinatory tour through an emporium of cultural chaos, a bipolar gallery of imagery both sacred and profane.”
