George Petty's Pinups for Every Month

Erotica // Wednesday, May 01, 2013
George Petty was one of the top "cheesecake" illustrators of the 30s and 40s, known for his undeniably charming and sexy pinup illustrations and their irresistible white-toothed grins. His career began with a series of cartoons featuring beautiful girls and their far-from-handsome beaus. His work earned him the term "Petty Girls" to describe these carefully airbrushed characters and their brilliant smiles and sexy poses. These drawings are undeniably kitschy and beautiful, capturing a kind of nostalgia no one else quite can.

Erotica // Wednesday, May 01, 2013
Masami Teraoka puts Renaissance painting and Japanese influence into violent contact with contemporary political issues in these expansive, turbulent compositions.

"Just Bone Me"

Erotica // Wednesday, May 01, 2013
This assumingly vintage illustration entitled "Just Bone Me" has caught the eye of our erotica department for its punny handling of the dirty deed. Depicting skeletons having sex in different positions while scattered amongst gravestones, this drawing is a charming imagining of what goes on after our bodies leave us. We'd like to see this either framed on our wall or on a t-shirt immediately.  

Kat Clark in the Summer Heat

Erotica // Tuesday, April 30, 2013
Fabiola Zamora shoots Kat Clark for 192 Magazine in heavy, luscious colors that evoke the hot summer air. Zamora plays with the saturation of her photos to enhance the atmospheric weight of these images, and Kat Clark seems almost to be floating in realms of purples and oranges as she languishes. These photos are gorgeous and sexy, fantastic eye candy for the approaching summer.  

Secret Sexy Lives of Superheroes

Erotica // Tuesday, April 30, 2013
Artist Greg Guillemin exposes superheroe's daily lives in a series aptly titled 'The Secret Life of Superheroes." Featuring some of our favorite heroes from the Marvel and DC universes, these illustrations take us backstage behind the latex and spandex. Bright, bold and provocative, Guillemin proves that even superheroes aren't immune to the draws of everyday vices--similarly, superheroes need to get their kicks too. They might all have bangin' bodies but that doesn't mean they don't stuff their bras or use sex toys every now and then.
