Coven 2, 2002
I mentioned in my post on Coven: Sisterhood of the Dark that I would discuss the second and third collections of witchy pin-up art “another time.” Well, now is the time for Coven 2: A Gallery Girls Collection published by SQP Inc. in 2002.
This time most of the illustrations are of witches, historical or modern, or enchantresses, sorceresses and other practitioners of the Dark Arts, rather than the female demons, devils, fairies and vampires that dominated the first collection. But the quality of the artwork is just as varied as before, ranging from polished and engaging to crude and clichéd.
Tempting as it is to show just how bad amateur pin-up art can be, I will stick with what I consider to be the better pieces, and try and show the work of a range of artists, not just all the pieces of the best. Enjoy!
