June Palmer (1940-2004), also known as "June Power", was one of the most famous of the models of the 1960s. Photographer Irv Carsten said this about Palmer in the March 1962 issue of Modern Man, "I felt ashamed using an automatic camera. Her posing is second nature, she's beautiful from any angle, and without camera settings to make, there's nothing to do but watch."
In fact it is so and I add "even to draw".

Her curves, her expressions, the plasticity of her body make her a perfect pin-up model and for me it was a pleasure to be able to transfer them to paper.

In the video below, you can enjoy the realization of this pin up design.
