  1. Pretty sexy stuff. Weird, but sexy.

  2. Love the gorgeous gals -- and the goofy guys make me chuckle. What's up with the guy smokin' a pipe on the diving board!?! Wacky!

  3. Leif, because of your constant coverage of Pete Hawley, he has unquestionably become one of my top five favorite illustrators of all time. And this new batch of Jantzens is like me stumbling upon a buried treasure. His work is fluid, natural, playful, colorfully juicy and DISTINCT! As usual--thanks.

  5. Terry; I think the idea was that the guy on the diving board is so distracted by that gorgeous gal in the Jantzen suit that he's forgotten to put down his pipe before diving in the pool!

  7. These girls project a very sexy playful attitude,without reverting to tedious cheesecake shots.

  8. The renderings are fine -- but the figures are creepy. They look like "pod people" to me, or sexy elves, or creatures out of Star Trek. Oh well, you can't please em all.

    Ever wonder why there were no Elizabeth Taylor dolls? They couldn't keep their legs together long enough to get them in a box. Well, they finally got the old tramp in one.
