It was about sex, drugs, rock&roll, fantasy, love, freedom & waking up, and it was one of the most visually exciting publications of its time. Several editions included psychedelic wrap-around or pull-out posters and the cover of Oz #11 included a collection of multi-color stickers. 

Adara Sánchez Anguiano

Erotica // Thursday, January 23, 2014
Adara Sánchez Anguiano was born in Sevilla in 1987. 'I’ve always had pencils in my hands, it’s impossible to know when I started drawing. I learnt to draw at the same time as I learnt to count and read. I started my Fine Art degree in my born place, but I finished it between Belgium and Cuenca. After that I got a master in illustration in Barcelona. Now I’ve come back to the south again, I spend the days enjoying the sun and attending commission from all over the world.'

LA Art Show: Tom Dash

Erotica // Thursday, January 23, 2014
Last weekend we took a trip to the LA Art Show to browse the array of galleries, both local and international, and to see what the world had to offer this time. After a near mind melting trip to both Art Basel in Miami and Israel to experience their creative scene, I'd thought that my level of visual inbut had been exhausted- but not quite. The most exciting erotic installation I found at the LA Art Show was by the talents of Tom Dash, with Michael Borgni Fine Art- a rich a provocative collection of acrylic collages on canvas from 2013.

Light and Shadow: Keinyo White

Keinyo White is an incredibly talanted watercolor artist. In this series, light and shadow dance across the female form. His attention to detail and most notably lighting brings his subjects life. Keinyo displays his knowledge of what it takes to be a technical artist: “I don't think the majority of artists working today have the technical capacity for portraiture..."

Michael Reedy has created a beautifully grotesque series of anatomical figure drawings. His ability to use and omit color when needed shows his refined intuition for composure.

Don Brown's YOKO

Erotica // Wednesday, January 22, 2014
Don Brown is a UK sculptor currently based out of London. YOKO is one of Don's most recent projects. When he first began creating lifelike sculptures, Don used himself as the subject and eventually started to use his spouse as his muse. His figures are fifty to seventy-five percent smaller than the subject, which he says makes the observer intuitively feel protective over them. Don maticulously creates each pristine piece by hand, without the use of molds or any other aid.

Erotica // Wednesday, January 22, 2014
Apollonia Saintclair presents her audience something oh so relatable. In the cover piece entitled "Alone on New Year's Eve" her subject is nude and passed out with a bottle of champagne. Apollonia approaches her work in an honest way simply stating "Ink is my blood. I draw for my own sake and for your pleasure. A long-time resident of the Old World, I split my time between the kitchen and my studio."

The book chronicles the progression of her work over ten years of illustrating; a hefty volume and huge accomplishment.
