1991 POY Lisa Matthews, FTW! As soon as I saw that pose I instantly recognized who it was
Dude, this takes me back! I was still fairly new to the Navy when that issue of Lisa as POY came out. About 3 months earlier I was near the end of basic training and they let us leave the base and hang out with our family for a few hours a couple of days before graduation. My parents & grandmother actually flew all the way down to surprise me and see my graduation! Spent the first day off to see Disneyworld & Epcot. Next day we went around the local mall and that's where this hot girl-next-door-looking blonde caught my eye. She was walking around with her grandparents, I believe. She had on a bright blue business dress on.
So when I saw that photo of Lisa in a similar blue suit in that issue my buddy was holding up, I thought that was the same girl, lol! He let me borrow the issue so I can draw her and eventually gave me a small stack of mags for me to practice drawing women. Everyone in my division knew I loved comic books and drew a lot superhero stuff. I never drew the models naked, I had a rule to keep them clothed Funny that the 90s was also the start of the whole modern age "Good Girl" and "Cheescake" pin-up craze, huh?
Lisa Matthews, Brandi Clarke were my fave PMs even though I am really more of a Brunette guy. Leann Tweeden is up there. Loved Jenny McCarthy back in the day but Lisa has always been my favorite! All my drawings got lost around the time I left the Navy though.
I admit, I still haven't seen her POY video or her Dec 1990 issue yet.
I wanted to draw my favorite Playmate, and I knew she had to be Lisa Matthews, PMOY 1991!
