Sci-Fi, Fantasy, & Girlicious Pin-Up Art: The Art of Alicia Hollinger Hits Amazon

A Female Artists Knows What Men Want in This Sexy Modern Pop Culture Comic-Con Influenced Pin-Up Art Book
LOS ANGELES - Oct. 13, 2013 - PRLog -- Alicia Hollinger takes a quantum leap into an alternate universe with this modern full color pin-up art book of computer 3D generated and digitally painted sexy sci-fi, fantasy, and beautiful pop culture girls. As a female pin-up artist, Alicia likes to create beautiful girls like Victoria's Secret models or Charlie's Angels, that girls want to be and guys want to... be with, so the book can be enjoyed by both men and women. Her current art style is greatly influenced by her first trip to San Diego Comic-Con in 2009 when she first tasted of the geekdom Kool Aid and had an epiphany that released her inner geek while waiting in line at the Stargate booth.

Alicia Hollinger has shown her art at Petra Gallery in Beverly Hills, Meltdown Comics Gallery in Hollywood, Pixeldrip Gallery events, Nucleus Gallery in Los Angeles, Titmouse Studios Hollywood, L.A.'s Comic Book Sunday, pop-up store galleries in LA, Long Beach Comic-Con, Wondercon, Condor-Con, LA Horror Fest, Pop-Con LA and Stan Lee's Comikaze. Her work is also featured in a book published by Heavy Metal Magazine.

As a child, Hollinger used traditional art media and loved to create people, especially her own paper dolls. She later taught herself Photoshop and several other 2D and 3D software programs and now creates people in the computer. Often mistaken for photography, the girls are pure CGI, 3D rendered then painted in Photoshop or other art and painting software.

"Why sexy pin-ups, you may ask..."  jokes Hollinger. "Well I started out doing high-fashion looks and then realized there’s really not a market for computer-generated models in fashion because there are so many actual living ones who have to wear real life clothes… It all started when one day, back in 2009, someone saw my art and suggested I go to Comic-Con in San Diego. 'What’s that?' I asked. It ended up being something that changed my life. I went into Comic-Con day one, a jaded Hollywood/NYC self-professed over-educated party-girl to, after four days of immersion in this strange new land, I emerged—a geek! While standing in a ridiculous line in front of a mock-up of a Stargate from Stargate SG-1 (which I had just started watching the year the series ended and went into syndication) waiting with all the other Stargate fans, something happened. The years of jadedness began to lift and while staring into the epicenter of that Stargate mock-up, feeling almost as if I were in line to go through an actual wormhole, I felt a sudden affinity with those around me. I suddenly GOT IT, I understood geekdom! It wasn’t about those nerds in school who covered their work during tests in fear you may copy off them, it was about embracing otherworldly possibilities and immersing yourself in imaginary universes with imaginary people who are beyond mere mortals."

"So, it was right there at the Stargate booth at Comic-Con that my whole life changed. I started embracing geekdom. My favorite TV shows became 'Stargate SG-1,' 'Battlestar Galactica,' 'Firefly,' 'Eureka,' and then 'Continuum,' and my motto came to be the SYFY Channel’s corporate slogan 'Imagine Greater.'"

"Oh, and sex sells, so therefore, the scantily clad girls LOL…" she adds.

"So, basically, I drank of the Comic-Con Kool-Aid, and mixed it with my existing Hollywood world of parties filled with Playboy and Maxim models and it turned into the sci-fi, fantasy and 'girlicious' pin-ups of today… "

This book is Volume 1, a sampler of different genres. Her future books will be focused in a specific genre. She is now working on Volume 2, a sci-fi pin-up book entitled "Cheesecake Galactica." She will also be releasing small collections of niche art available for Kindle and free for those with a Kindle Fire and Prime membership to borrow.
