I’ll sign for that!
Never mind Victoria’s Secret. The roots of Mike Shampine’s perky illustration style run back to the days of his youth in Alaska, where legend has it, he drew (literally) inspiration from stacks of comic books and Sears lingerie ads. I may be totally off, but I see a hint of Vaughn Bode in Mike’s work. His WWII aircraft nose art pin-up renderings literally pop off the page, in all the right ways.
Okay, so the Church Lady might not approve.
Mike majored in animation and illustration at the Columbus College of Art and Design, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude. His clients include MTV, Nickelodeon, and Limited Too.
A selection of hand signed and numbered high-end giclee prints, including B-52 Belinda, KC-135 Cassie, AC-130 Shirley and C-17 Sally are available in Mike’s Etsy shop.
