The Work of Hydro74

Juxtapoz // Sunday, April 01, 2012
Joshua M. Smith, aka Hydro74, is an illustrator and designer based in Orlando, FL. "Complexity and a fluid organic approach is highly valued in each and every piece," says Smith about his illustration process. "An illustration to me is something that tells a story without words. It builds a bond with the viewer who will either get it or find it horrible, yet the interaction is what is desired when doing a piece."

The Muse

Erotica // Saturday, March 31, 2012
'The Muse' is another film put out by my favorite fancy lil lingere company, Agent Provocateur, starring Mylene Jampanoï in their Spring Summer 2012 campaign. This film shows a softer, more romantic type of erotica, mixed with feminine sensuality, romanticism and the sexuality of The Muse in the arts.
