Chiriaka’s first real success was in 1952, when he was commissioned to paint two pinups for the Esquire calendar. The following year he was asked to paint all twelve lovely ladies. He continued working for Esquire, pinup magazines & pulp publisher's cover art for many years. His famous Esquire pinups are sultry women with proportions of Aphrodite. Chiriaka would hire as many as six different women to assemble his vision of an ideal beauty. Chiriacka signed using the moniker 'Darcy' or just 'D' for the slicks & he signed his pinups as E. Chiriaka. The calendar pages featured here are from the 1954 Esquire Girl Special Deluxe Edition Calendar. Art Deco Style!
