Erotica // Friday, April 13, 2012

Zombie Sexocalypse

Erotica // Thursday, April 12, 2012
In the bizarre and macabre heavy metal world of illustrator Mark Riddick, naked zombie chicks are happily and graphically disemboweled by their rotting, skeletal boyfriends, and some even give birth to monstrous undead babies in pools of festering entrails and melted skin.

Norris/Steak delicately abstract their compositions, softening the seamy subject matter for the viewers’ gaze, coaxing them to examine in detail something that would perhaps normally make them uncomfortable.
