New Patterns! COOP Devil Girls! (NSFW)

If you aren't a longtime fan of COOP's art, well, that's practically un-American. 

We are thrilled to introduce:


THE BIG SHEET • COOP • Devil Girls Embroidery Patterns - these patterns are JUMBO sized!
(The iron-ons also include tips for filling in her hair!)

The first time I saw one of Coop's devil girls was in France in 1994. It was as impressionable as seeing my first Varga girl, or viewing the work of Tamara de Lempicka: you know you are seeing something unique, iconic, and perfectly executed. The best version of "it" you can possibly see. In this case: lovely, shapely, naughty pinup-style devil girls. Be still my 90's-beating heart!

And while Coop's work pervaded the decade's rock posters, album covers, comic books, stickers, book covers, Hot Wheels, toys and sculpture -his work has enjoyed a continued trajectory of fine art, painting and a deserved, firm place in pop culture iconography. (If you don't agree with that statement, then I'm willing to bet the comparable genius of guys like Will Elder or Al Capp doesn't rank with you, either.)

But really, even more than the 60's hot-rod, freakout, sexed-up sci-fi, usually tongue-in-cheek aesthetic that he mines so perfectly, I love his work because no one can draw quite so beautifully as he can:

 

Coop, THANK YOU for lending your fine work to the Sublime Stitching Artist Series!
