BACK IN November we introduced you to the work of comic book illustrator Howard M. Shum who occasionally takes time out of his job inking for Star Wars, X-Men, The Simpsons, and Aquaman, to focus on another love: tha ladiesss. (See Andy Gray's Q&A with the artist here.) Turns out not only has he found inspiration in two Rookie images of Gigi Hadid and Emily Ratajkowski, but he had his finger on the pulse of modeling's next big names for a while, having first added Gigi and Emily to his portfolio before they debuted in the issue, along with other Rookies Bregje HeinenMarloes Horst and Sara Sampaio.

Click through for a gallery of a selection of this year's rookies, as re-imagined by the artist. For more of his work (more than 20 SI Swimsuit models, past and present, can be found on his blog) visit howardshum.blogspot.com/.
