O.K. by Me by David Wright
O.K. by Me by David Wright, showing a glamorous lady in a midnight blue dress reclining on a bed as she looks at her reflection in a hand mirror. Wright produced a series of over 160 illustrations or 'pin-ups' for 'The Sketch' during the 1940's. David Wright's 'Lovelies' proved hugely popular and adorned practically every military mess, bunker, dormitory or club room in the country during World War II.
