Adding a modern-day spin to pin-up illustrations, artist Andrew Tarusov updates the images of older pin-up artist Gil Elvgren with an apocalyptic aesthetic.

The hype of apocalyptic issues are constantly on the rise, and Andrew Tarusov decided to use this as the concept for the setting of his images. With the year 2012 being rumored as the next apocalypse and general uprising issues of the planet, many people can relate to the issues depicted. Each of these pin-ups take up a month in the 'Apocalypse Tomorrow' calendar, where each image addresses a different situation with ladies that stay calm throughout every situation. In the end, making a joke of such serious issues may actually get people paying attention. Stats for Apocalypse Pin-Ups Trending: Older & Buzzing
