What am I to presume when they don’t even give me the first thing

What am I to presume when they don’t even give me the first thing

My phone rang last week and I picked it up and said hello.

The guy at the end of it launched straight into the conversation by saying he had experience of life drawing and had done a couple of hen party sessions and wanted to do more erotic experiences with women watching him. He wanted to know if I was interested in drawing him?

I listened to his suggestion and gave him the standard answer.

“I will only draw you if its a commission, and you are paying me”.

He asked if I knew of any other artists who would be interested in drawing him.

“No I don’t”

And would I like him to send me a photo of himself so I could send it on if someone asks for someone to be drawn as he had seen that I had artwork on my website of other people and someone might be interested.

I declined and said that I would only be drawing him if he paid me, and if someone wanted to be drawn they chose the model for it, or posed themselves.

He asked how much my hourly rate was, and I told him.

I asked him where he lived, and the answer was an area at least two hours journey away from where I live in the Midlands. I told him that, and he said it wasn’t a problem.

The phone call came to an end. The guy wanted an erotic experience with no cost to himself.

And as I put the phone down I realised one thing.

He hadn’t given me his name at all. Or even used mine.




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.
