I adore the work of Miami-based artist Renato Armijo, particularly his “Glamadolls” series featuring the fun world of stylish girls and high fashion as seen through the eyes of an artist. I was introduced to his work several years ago when he was featured in DailyCandy, and I have been a fan ever since.
Renato recently created a series of illustrations called “The Summer Girls” to celebrate the summers of the glamorous 1950s. While it may technically be fall, it is always summertime here in South Florida, and I love the retro glam vibe of this series! The Summer Girls journey back in time to iconic summer destinations, donning their cat eye sunglasses, fabulous hats, brightly colored swimsuits, and chic swim caps. Let’s soak up some summer sun with them! Images and captions are courtesy of Renato Armijo.
little bit of the glamour of summer… So. Famous, iconic, classic – whatever you want to call it. It
was the ORIGINAL summer place.
Do you love Renato’s work as much as I do? His style reminds me of Ruben Toledo. You can see more through the Glamadoll Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr accounts. Email [email protected] to inquire about your very own custom Glamadoll! You can see the custom illustration he created for me on the “About Me” page of my blog.
