Blast from the Past: Patrick Nagel

Art, Illustrations February 17, 2016

During his prolific, but short career, Patrick Nagel created over 400 paintings and illustrations and invented the look of what we now call the Resting Bitch Face.

Welcome to sex in the 21st Century! None of my fluffy pillows could possibly compete with this firm foam.
