Chinese Vespa Pin Up Girl (an homage to my wife’s heritage)

The image above is a composite of five (5) other artworks that I put together much like the technique I used in the Pinay Vespa Pin Up. I specifically used for Chinese paintings for the background to give the “feel” I wanted. Here they are:
I do hope to make other Asian Vespa pin ups when inspiration strikes me.
