Oh my gracious, lawrencegullo and fyodorpavlov are bringing us DR SKETCHY’S AT STONEWALL with JOHNNY PANIC and FANCY FEAST and MINX ARCANA. WOULDJA COME ON.
I’ll be joining this fabulous crew for the rebirth of Dr Sketchys in NYC!
HAHAHA damn, I was about make a post, but I guess the cat’s out of the bag on Tumblr already!
Yes indeed, kittens. Lewd Alfred Douglas and I have taken over the New York branch of Dr. Sketchy’s, which has been on hiatus for some time, and we’re bringing it back with a vengeance starting with Sunday, April 27th.
So please, join the Dr. Sketchy’s NYC group on facebook because we have some beautiful and exciting things planned, RSVP to our event, buy your tickets, and we’ll see you at Stonewall!
Three more miniatures for the lampshade commission. Six down, three more to go!
The first three in a series of nine erotic miniatures that will later serve as panels in a gorgeously ornate antique lamp. My friends commission me to make the best things!
inmylittlesecretworld asked: I tagged you in this "name ten books that touched you" thingy out of sheer boredom (you can see it on my blog). Pardon my French .
1. Prince Yusupov’s memoirs - Lost Splendour and In Exile
2. Comte de Lautreamont, Les Chants de Maldoror
3. Arthur Conan Doyle, the entire Sherlock Holmes canon
4. Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, Venus in Furs
5. Evelyn Waugh, Vile Bodies
6. Neil Gaiman, American Gods
7. Joris-Karl Huysmans, Against Nature
8. Alexander Pushkin, Eugene Onegin
9. E. M. Remarque, The Road Back
10. Christopher Isherwood, Berlin Stories
This feels really incomplete and fiction heavy, so here is a more complete list of my favorite books/books that have deeply influenced and affected me.
cxavierii asked: Have you ever wanted to illustrate some of a book which you read? It will be interesting to see your illustration to the Nabokov's Pale Fire It's very burlesque story with a great grotesque erotic fantasy. I think your art looks very pertinently as illustration for this book
I frequently draw things inspired by the stuff I’m reading (there are pages upon pages of Berlin Stories sketches in my sketchbooks), but I must admit Lolita is the only Nabokov I’ve read so far. I’ll be sure to add Pale Fire to my list!
Commission for a naughty librarian (which is a bit redundant - librarians are naughty as a rule).
This one was a bit of a challenge - the patron wanted the piece to be mostly black and white with a touch of color. However, I wanted to differentiate the skin tones of the couple, and the red was just a fun bit of contrast. So the end result is a bit of a compromise - by no means full color, but not just a touch either. I think if I had to do it over again, I would have just gone with full color on both of the figures. But the patron was very happy with the result, and that’s what counts (I like it too!).
allvirgo asked: What are your feelings on All Creatures Great And Small? You seem somehow like the sort of fellow who would be all over that.
My feelings are this.
Working on the funnest little commission for my lovely friend Hazel Honeysuckle - a series of pornographic miniatures which she will use as panels in the shade of an antique brass lamp in her home. I’ll be sure to post the end result when I’m done with all these!
All this being sick at least gave me the time to finish another commission.
Sick as a dog all day, but still churning out porn like a champ. I’m especially proud of the cum splatters and the chair leg. It’s the little artistic victories. I need more tea. Help.
cxavierii asked: Could you write a short autobiography? I think it would be interested for your fans.
I’m not much of an autobiographical writer… There are some things in my personal tag from previous questions people have asked, as well as my own posts. I guess if people want to ask me things they can feel free?
Another portrait commission - the lady in question is giving it to her husband for his birthday.
I want this lingerie set to exist, because a lady I’m smitten with is demanding one and promising to wear it. Sigh!
inmylittlesecretworld asked: I need to know good male burlesque acts now ! :O
Do you mean performers? I’m not sure what the boylesque situation is in Berlin (though you lot are lucky to have my beloved Lada Redstar), but there is quite a budding scene in New York, and our performers tend to get around Europe every so often - the godfather of boylesque himself, Tigger!, Chris Harder, Evil Hate Monkey, Mr. Gorgeous, the lovely regulars of Homo Erectus produced by Matt Knife, as well as my dear friends Suffra Gent and Johnny Panic, and of course my beloved husband Lewd Alfred Douglas.
Seattle, WA is also rich in gorgeous and talented boys, since they boast Mod Carousel, who recently made this amazing thing that made the rounds on the internet.
each-fallenrobin asked: You are a fantastic artist! I live in fear of your name.
Maybe it’s cadmium red. Maybe it’s the blood of my enemies.
allvirgo asked: The penmanship you use on your art is tremendous. Did you have any particular influences in developing its style?
Not really. I grew up in Russia, where learning how to write script is standard practice since first grade, so my handwriting developed with my ability to write. Thank you!
