This is based off a 1949 short story by Fritz Leiber titled "The Girl with the Hungry Eyes", about a mysterious and seductive pin-up girl who grows ubiquitous in advertising thanks to the efforts of the photographer protagonist. I won't spoil the climactic twist for you, but suffice it to say she has a very sinister secret revealed.

I will say the girl's physical appearance is mostly left to the reader's imagination. She is only described as on the thin side and having "tumbling dark hair", but that second trait could be found in almost any racial or ethnic group. The red color of her eyes in this illustration is my own invention however, since it's meant to make her look more sinister.
