What’s On Your Wall?: Emma Munger, Illustrator & Cartoonist

Welcome to What’s On Your Wall?, an ongoing series exploring the creative domestic spaces of the artists that inspire us. (But mostly, it’s our excuse to sneak a peek into the homes and studios of artists from all over the world.)

Illustrator and cartoonist Emma Munger has a soft spot for pin-up art – and if you check out her library of practically all of your favorite tv characters reinterpreted as sassy pin-up characters, we think you’ll find that you’re a fan, too. From the cast of The Walking Dead to Orange is the New Black to Twin Peaks, Emma’s somehow managed to capture the vintage pin-up alter egos of every character we can think of. Take a peek at Emma’s wall of art – a classic mix of mix of cheeky illustrations and vintage throwbacks – below:
