A Great gift for those into Hot Rods, retro wear, vintage clothing, W.W.II and Korean War bird, nose art and aviation collectors; and of course those that love their Martini, swing, RAT PACK, Sinatra, Elvis, Marilyn and Rock A Billy set.

Please do not reproduce this painting or the many others I have replicated, restored and or signed over the last 20 years. Thank you.

WHO IS DANIEL VANCAS?
Daniel Vancas is a fine artist and fine art publisher of limited editions. Known mostly for his work in pinup, illustration, aviation and automobile art. He was the very first publisher of fine art Elvgren limited editions, and also the very first to commercially offer high quality Elvgren Replica paintings. He promoted Elvgren for 14 years at his own expense of over $1,000,000.
Before Elvgren was rediscovered in the late 1990's and well before most of those popular new books came out, Daniel Vancas Owned and opened several Vanguard Galleries promoting Elvgren! He paid for shows all around the country promoting Elvgren pinup. He was the first to open Elvgren web sites in 1993 & 94.
HE WAS THE FIRST COMMERCIAL REPLICA ARTIST OF ELVGREN WORKS:
Because an estimated 40% of all of Elvgren's paintings were thrown away and lost, and because the found ones are rarely are for sale, unless offered at $75,000 to $150,000; Daniel Vancas was the first to paint the replicas of Elvgren pinups for the public, using mostly the destroyed, lost and unavailable Elvgren images. In this way he has faithfully and lovingly preserved many now lost works of art for another generation. At first he was licensed with B&B, now he owns his own separate elvgren Intellectual Property.
Over the years he was also licensed by the VARGAS ESTATE, and bought and sold many vintage original vintage pinup paintings by Elvgren, Vargas, Petty, Moran and many others. Many celebrities and actors have been to his shows and gallery openings.
Daniel Vancas painted over 238 ELVGREN REPLICA PAINTINGS! He has signed and dated back of each one, so they will never be confused with the original vintage painting by Elvgren. The reason you don't often see them for resale is because the collectors of these paintings keep them. Most are sold through galleries.
DANIEL VANCAS IS AN ELVGREN I.P., TRADEMARK & REGISTERED VERO RIGHTS OWNER ON EBAY AS WELL.
As a proud owner of the Elvgren trademarks, Daniel Vancas has use these marks continual since 1994, 1st issue 1997 and re-issued, final, over 13 year use, Nov.15, 2005.
