Sometimes, a two hour Tumblr bender turns up wonderful discoveries. Amazing finds like these glorious pieces of pin-up art using the heroes of the Jurassic Park and Jurassic World movies as subjects. The artist is San Francisco-based Emma Munger, and her art is epic and oh-so-beautiful. Her illustrations are, to use her own words, “sassy Sailor Jerry inspired pin-ups/flash sheets of my favorite TV/movie heroines.” Using classic tattoo compositions and color schemes, Emma turns recognizable characters from the James Bond film series, Twin Peaks, and even NBA superstars like LeBron James into cheeky portraits with a “come hither” flair. But the Jurassic pieces that caught my eye during the aforementioned Tumblr scroll-hole were these wonderful versions of Ellie Sattler, Alan Grant, Ian Malcolm, Robert Muldoon, Claire Dearing, and Owen Grady (featuring Blue!)
The pieces featured in the gallery below are all available for purchase as prints, and that’s great and all, but you can also get a sultry Ian Malcolm coffee mug, phone case, or pillow!
Is there anything better than a wounded Jeff Goldblum lying in repose and with his shirt askew? I don’t think so. Well, maybe there’s one thing: a leggy Robert Muldoon wrapped around a mug, adding a fair amount of sass to your morning cup of caffeine.
Be sure to peruse Emma’s various web showcases for hi-res versions of the photos. Her Tumblr is full of Bond Girls, NBA Boys, and a bevy of brazen men and women from pop culture. There are even photos of folks who have inked her art onto themselves, bringing her Sailor Jerry influence full-circle.
