I <3 Carlos Valenzuela. I've loved him for a long time without even knowing it.
Okay, STORY TIME!
I saw this image on tumblr awhile back:
TUMBLR AND PINTEREST IN THE SAME PARAGRAPH. Can I be any more of a 20-something girl stereotype?
A few months later, I was looking for inspiration for a short story, and so I was browsing through my Pinterest board dedicated to pix I find brainstorm-worthy, and this one immediately jumped out at me. So I started working on a sexy lady monster hunter character.
Then today, Classic Movie Monsters featured a couple of portraits of Frankenstein and the Wolf Man. I liked the portraits, so I clicked the link to the artist's page. I noticed my lady monster hunter in the background of another picture, and I got really excited. And so began today's internet timesuck!
I went through Valenzuela's whole gallery. I so totally dig his pulp-meets-pinup style. A few of my favorites are below, but you should really check out his whole deviantArt gallery. Because you'll love him as much as I do!
