Nagel-esque

Does anyone remember Patrick Nagel? He was an illustrator and graphic artist who created an sexy, iconic graphical style of female portraits and figures. His work was a staple of Playboy magazine and grace album covers and sold widely and commercially in the 1980’s. This awesome wheat-paste street-art poster-work on a building in Tokyo, Japan looks a little like Nagel’s style, though it’s obviously not Nagel’s work. He died in 1984.
