The adventures of Hilda

Hilda is a different kind of Pin-up, painted by Duane Bryers.

I love most pin-up girls, but Hilda stands out and holds a very special place in my heart.
She's voluptuous - a vibrant red-head who's always up to something. In short she's a true role-model and perhaps the answer to the question of what happened to Pippi Longstockings when she finally grew up? She got renamed to Hilda Longstockings!

And also pretty realistic. Thanks for reaquainting me with Hilda. I'd forgotten about her (and who can ever possibly do that>).
