Fastner and Larson's New Pulp

Erotica // Saturday, June 02, 2012
Early in 1976, renowned comics historian David Mruz hosted a meeting of the Minnesota Comics Collectors Association- introducing the talents of Fastner and Larson to eachother. Ever since then, for the past 28 years, together they have been illustrating a melange of babes and monsters in this genre of New Pulp. Rest assured that those fantasy dames are ingrained deep within both of their hearts, and that's not likely to change anytime soon...

Van Rijnall's Nudes

Erotica // Friday, June 01, 2012
Specializing in luminescent fetish, erotic foreplay, bondage, kink and all kinds of flesh based illustrative work, the nudes depicted by artist and enthusiast Van Rijnall are every part as alluring and provocative as the real thing. Like the Sirens of Greek Mythology, the appeal and lure of Van's illustrations may bring you dangerously close to believing that they are, in fact, calling out to you.

Bankers at the Poolside

Erotica // Friday, June 01, 2012
Tomer Hanuka's 'Bankers at the Dawn of Civilization' for Playboy Magazine is perfect example of a wild poolside bash in Vegas. 'This would have been disturbing if it wasn't so prevalent. They took the bailout cash, pocketed it as bonuses and blew it on coke and whores in Vegas. The 1st sketch had to be cleaned up somewhat, to keep it classy.' The final poolside party and some process shots from Hanuka- great progression ha.

Matt Shields Photography

Erotica // Friday, June 01, 2012
There is a definite softness and dreamy appeal in the work of Matt Shields. His photographs portray a lightly romantic use of exposure and natural lighting, creating a subtly provocative image, effortlessly. His portfolio varies between some beautifully double shots, more hard edged erotic portraiture and muses that are as fresh and innocent as new cotton linens.

From Italy with Lust

Erotica // Thursday, May 31, 2012
If you were to ask me to name my most favorite erotic artists of all time, classic or new, the work of Zoe Lacchei would consistently turn up at the top of my list. Passionate, sensual and full of animalistic lust, Zoe's dedication to her craft portraying provocative, near-bestiality is absolutely stunning. Zoe Lacchei grew up in a small town near Rome, kind of a quiet place far from the chaos of the city, where her bashful and introvert character originated...

Bearded Ladies by Arvida Bystrom (NSFW)

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 31, 2012
The work of young photographer (like 20 years old-young) Arvida Bystrom consistently catches my eye. Whether its the dark erotic GIF's, or series of sexy bearded nudes- (hey, there's something for everyone) the appeal of her work is unavoidable. She's young and talented, and uses topics confronting gender, love, age and beauty stereotypes in her work. She has a couple editorials for Vice under her belt and with work like this, she will continue to stop me dead in my tracks.

Diary of a Smutographer

Erotica // Wednesday, May 30, 2012
Elvis Di Fazio’s fine art background has served him well, with his artistic sensibilities freeing him from the technical boundaries that prevent so many young photographers from forging into new territory. Bright and ballsy, Di Fazio’s photos flash with kitsch erotica  and his style has quickly unfurled, dancing from precise and emotive portraiture with a classic bent to something distinctly modern in its appeal. 'I want to put the dick back into ridiculous...

Today he incorporates the Urban Techniques to a Surreal art form, giving him a finished product of an edgy Modern Surrealism.
