Client asked for the image to be retouched in the style of 1960s pop art pinups. I smoothed the skin, removed freckles, toned the arm, extended the background, adjusted the hair color, did general color correction, and of course, added the speech bubble.
Detail of photo restoration for New York's Lower East Side Tenement Museum. Removed dust and speckling, repaired folds and tears, repaired water damage in the bottom left corner.
