7th Day of Christmas: 7 Legion Pin-ups

Here are seven Foreign Legion pin-up girls created by Legion artist extraordinaire Evguenii Ponomarev.  If the illustration style looks familiar it’s because the highly prolific artist has been a regular painter of military and particularly Foreign Legion subjects for over 20 years.  He is one of the primary illustrators for the Legion and was the artist who worked on the Hachette series of Foreign Legion Collectible folios and miniatures (Soldats de la Légion Etrangère).  You can see more pin-ups in his online gallery.  The header image might also be by Ponomarev but I’m not sure.

Whether Pulp illustrations or movie posters, the tasteful artwork really wakes up my imagination. I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season and that we all get to continue enjoying your blog’s postings throughout 2023 and beyond. Again, thank you so much! – David Hennen
