Camera Club Girls : Bettie Page, Her Friends and the Work of Rudolph Rossi Handpainted original 8 x 10 photograph circa 1955 From the Book
Hmm…Here is Bettie Page drawn by Eric Stanton in 1962, but I am getting a definite Steve Ditko comic vibe. Hey Spiderman? What’s with the BATS?
In 1962, Eric Stanton and Steve Ditko were sharing studio space. Draw your own conclusions… this is 1962 mind you. Eric Stanton was even credited as “Art Director” at the time, though they spelled his fake name wrong, as Eric Stanten.

“When lucky, the studio is a 50 watt bulb on a frayed cord. The spouse on occasion, but those are the “gotcha” shots…in the tub, slamming the door, bent-over at the wrong time. Pratfalls of pulchritude. More often, these are the girl next door who could keep a secret. The paid escort who snuck into the hotel. The b-girl who just didn’t mind, or needed something in return. A woman forced into it by circumstance or need. A woman choosing her own circumstance or need. Someone’s sister, mother, relative, girlfriend, lover, plaything, victim paramour or drinking companion. A human being seeking love, favor, excitement, titillation, rewards. An amateur clutching a shirt to her face, or a former novice wearing a provided mask. Intoxicated, drugged or completely in charge. There is no end to justifications or motivations…just as there is no end to the photographs. We are human, we have needs, we scheme, manipulate, tease and flaunt in equal measure. These photos do not depict games or gamers, they depict life in the most immediate, intimate and possibly, illegal moments. They depict secrecy at the most basic, intimate core.” Jim Linderman from SSSSH!
