Ice Cream, Bubblegum, Tattooed Daydream

Illustration // Saturday, October 05, 2013
James Murphy likes art.  He also has a deep rooted appreciation for boobs, tattoos, and drippy, oozy candy coated cartoon-like daydreams, all bouncing, playing, barfing, skipping, smiling and holding hands in unison all the way to the other side of the strawberry scented rainbow.  The sun must be shining extra scratch and sniff on those nude, pistachio pin-ups over there in the UK these days.

James Murphy's Exciting Dreamworlds

Illustration // Wednesday, April 03, 2013
  James Murphy’s work is so distinct, you can’t look at it and associate it with any other person.  The pieces he presents exist in something of a dreamland and involve luscious, tattooed women, half-women half-creature creatures, and various other oddities all drawn in Murphy’s well defined hand.   I remember the feeling of joy with weird curiosity I had browsing through his pieces for the first time (or maybe more like a strange journey) and those feelings remain each time I return to his work or he posts a new piece on his Tumblr or Flickr stream.   You can own James’s art via Threadless.  He plans on opening a store soon for originals and prints.  

James Murphy's Candy Coated Erotica

Erotica // Tuesday, October 02, 2012
I absolutely love the playful, candy-coated, dark erotic work of artist and illustrator James Murphy. He has some new provocative rainbow rendered imagery up on his site since I last checked, full of seductive skin, daggers, guts, cartoon babes and monsters- the usual for him.
