The Sex Appeal of the Apocalypse

Surviving an apocalypse has never been this sexy. Andrew Tarusov, a Russian illustrator specializing in pin-up art, created the Apocalypse Tomorrow 2012 calendar, which combines sex appeal and apocalyptic scenarios.

Anyone familiar with the work of Gil Elvgren, the iconic American artist of pin-up girls, will see similarities in Tarusovs work. Unfortunately, the calendar is not available for purchase it is merely an experiment with styles and imagery. UPDATE: As commenter Austin pointed out, the calendars are for sale! “You have to email apocalyp2012@gmail.com if you live in the United States and tell them how many copies you want and the mailing address. They cost $25.00 + shipping!” (Thanks Austin.)

But the pictures definitely give some great ideas for new womens costumes.

NOTE: Some pictures may be NSFW.
