Erotica // Thursday, April 04, 2013
Paolo Eleuteri Serpieri is an Italian cartoonist whose impossibly sexy cartoon character "Druuna" is the focus of hundreds of his provocative drawings. The erotic science fiction and fantasy book revolves around a post-apocalyptic future, and th eplot is often a vehicle for varied scenes of hardcore port and softcore sexual imagery. Every artist uses their talent in different ways--Serpieri's "way" is very definite! We have to admit, he's a master at what he does, and Druuna puts a whole new twist on loving one's craft.

Marthe Jung's Deviant Experience

Erotica // Thursday, April 04, 2013
Marthe Jung illustrates weird, provocative scenes of colorful debauchery. Her characters all seem from some half-alien world, moving through strange landscapes and interacting with other creature-people. This particular intricate scene depicts a many-layered strip club cut away, revealing all the debauchery occuring in each corner within. Jung's inspired handling of color and shape give the strip-club experience an entirely new illustrative perspective that's hard to look away from for different reasons.   

Rankin Photography

Erotica // Wednesday, April 03, 2013
  Rankin's name is synonymous with compelling portraiture. He made his name in publishing, founding the seminal monthly magazine Dazed & Confused in 1992. Rankin's lens captures, creates and unveils icons, as is evident in these stunning images of Kate Moss, Heidi Klum and more. His images are playful, provocative and inimitably fresh, and they've become part of contemporary iconography as a result. Rankin has shot pretty much everyone that matters.    

Tony Kelly's Bodybuilders

Erotica // Thursday, April 04, 2013
  Tony Kelly is an Irish fashion photographer whose sexed-up, color-blasted photos are iconic in the visual landscape of American Apperal, Vanity Fair and Playboy France. Based in LA, Kelly's work has soaked up the sexy, perfectly-tanned influences of the California landscape, and he refuses to apologize for it. This series is a perfect example of his fleshy zeal--two jacked-up models in skimpy red shorts flex their way across a beach while asian tourists look on. Overtly sexual in nature, his photographs have been described as "irreverent, uncouth and provocative," and on the other hand "spontaneous, talkative and hyper-energetic." James Mullinger, photo editor of GQ Magazine, describes him as a "modern genius" who works "at an incredible pace."
