The V Magazine Naomi Campbell spread features photographer and artist Mickalene Thomas carrying out a reincarnation of the supermodel in adorning her portrait in luxurious Swarovski crystals. Thomas first snaps the photographs and then true to his former work, he embellishes them in a style evocative of 1970s Blaxploitation.

The shoot in V Magazine's V65 is dubbed “Happy Birthday, Naomi” to celebrate the Campbell's upcoming fortieth birthday in May.

The issue hits newsstands May 11th.

Implications - Pop art illustrations continue to be a highly eye-catching way to produce artwork and other visual displays. While Andy Warhol may be one famous artist behind pop art illustrations, companies shouldn't shy away from attempting to use such displays in their own ways.
