Cartoons and good causes

I’ve just sent my entry piece to the bloggers good cause charity book as promoted on Vi’s blog post the other week entitled You’re not the only one. I’m sure they’ll get a load of interest from other bloggers and I hope its the success they long for.

And whilst I’m on the subject of Vi, its reminded me of the cartoon that made her think of me when she saw it! I can’t imagine why!!!!!!!


Actually it made me laff outloud when I saw it – what a perfect thing to send an erotic artist who’s currently working on an erotic landscape!!! I love it! Infact, it may well inspire me to do something creative of my own with it at some point in the future!

I've been an artist all of my life, and my paintings now hang on walls in Europe, USA and Canada. I'm working on getting them on the other continents! My wide range of artwork has been exhibited nearer to home in the East Midlands, with the Guild of Erotic Artists at Beaumont Hall Studios in Hertfordshire, and at "Erotica", Olympia, London. I have also been featured alongside my work in the Guild of Erotic Artists book (volume 2). I love to create dramatic interest in my pictures, whether it’s to paint an unusual landscape, or just to utilise dramatic lighting in my figure drawings or strong colour in my animal portraits. Delighting in the spontaneous tendencies of watercolour adds an interesting and distinctive look to my paintings, some of which are purposefully ambiguous, enabling the viewer to use their own interpretation of my artwork. I also love to hide images, and humour within my paintings, whether it’s a secret message, or an erotic couple hidden within a landscape, or even an erotic landscape where the couple are camouflaged as the features of the land itself. I am equally happy painting in oils, acrylics or watercolours and love to draw with pencil or ink. I have also developed the very effective method of drawing using white pencil on black card which creates dramatic pictures by just picking out where the light catches the body and leaving the rest of the image to the imagination, in darkness. I can also utilise many different styles, whether it is realistic, abstract, surrealistic, erotic, fantasy or camouflage art where something is hidden within the painting. I'm just passionate about my art, whatever I paint! But, it doesn't matter how many landscapes or pet portraits I paint, its always the erotic stuff that people are interested in! I started blogging to share some of the strange conversations I have with the people I meet. But its evolved into far more than that now.

    OMG! That is too damn funny! Maybe that artist was inspired by seeing some of your more tasteful and beautiful landscapes.

    Nitebyrd – Um, you call this GOOD taste?! lol I would like to think the artist was inspired by me, but somehow I doubt it! I agree with you though, it’s really funny!

    Ha…fabulous. That is funny and so clever. I saw one called ‘What’s on a man’s mind’. If you look closely you could make out a naked woman. I was young and innocent, hehehehe…don’t laugh…I was young and innocent.

    Anyway, at first I couldn’t make it out, but others were able to easily.

    Hahaha…Okay, I was not that innocent, but I was young.

    Spiky zora jones – I’ve also seeen that one of the naked woman in “whats on a mans mind” and thought it very clever. I can see why you might not see it straight away if you were a bit innocent!

    Lol very funny but certaintly lacks the clever subtelty of your art. While that cartoon is amusing, I have to say I do prefer your stuff, it glows with talent.

    dj kirkby – Yes, the picture I’m painting for you at the moment is far more subtle than that isn’t it!
