A Necessary Dose of Hajime Sorayama

Erotica // Wednesday, February 15, 2012
Hajime Sorayama is a Japanese illustrator, known for his precisely detailed, erotic airbrush portrayals of women and feminine robots- and one of my all time favorite erotic artists. He often uses ideas from pin-up art, and re-creates them as furutistic chrome-plated gynoids in suggestive poses.

Alessandro Biffignandi's Horror Babes

Erotica // Wednesday, February 15, 2012
Alessandro Biffignandi was born in Rome in 1935, and supposedly he still lives there today. He painted hundreds of pulp covers and comic covers (aka “fumetti”) throughout the 50?s, 60?s and 70?s, occasionally even drawing for comics.

Sending a little 18th century Valentine's Day poetry your way: "The rose is red, the violet's blue, The honey's sweet, and so are you. Thou art my love and I am thine; I drew thee to my Valentine: The lot was cast and then I drew, And Fortune said it should be you."

Andy Warhol On Love

Erotica // Tuesday, February 14, 2012
Love is, perhaps, the most difficult emotion to define, it tends to encompass all other feelings in one massive flurry of passion, lust, bliss and pain.

We'll get it one of these days...

Tokyo-based Artist, designer, and doll maker Eli Effenberger-Satoh, aka Marmite Sue, finds it easiest to describe herself as a "Doll Artist." Not only does Marmite Sue create exquisitely beautiful, delicate, and somewhat macabre dolls, but she also uses the concept of the doll as inspiration for her fashion designs, wearable art, and digital paintings.

Though not intentionally sexual or erotic, Lorenzo Oggiano's series of fleshy, bulbous, glistening printed sculptural works 'Quasi-Objects' leave the imagination lost in trying to define these pink, curvaceous mounds as something more figurative than not.
