ghosts

Kazuki Takamatsu makes an interesting image. They’re ghostly sculptures of anime characters, machines and underwear. I have no idea what his personal art story is but the stuff is compelling. Oddly enough it looks like 3D rendered with a super simple lighting setup. Very clever.

Visit his portfolio site here.

I’m on the e-mail blast list of Agent Provocateur, not only because I like women in lingerie but because their web experiences are typically awesome. They partner with some great talent to bring a sense of humour and sophistication to frilly bits covering pink bits. Their latest endeavour, Lessons in Lingerie starring Maggie Gyllenhaal, Mindy and Tullulah is no exception. It’s just fun.

And while Maggie and the girls look amazing trussed up in their silks, it’s the illustration that links all the photos together that makes it great. I’m having trouble finding someone to take credit for the work though (so if someone knows please tell me and I can update this blog and heap praise where it should be heaped). The illustration was done by Tim Major, an drawer of the erotic. I haven’t found an online portfolio (something about the unwanted attention perhaps?) but if you plug his name into Google Images you’ll find some fun stuff.

I can direct some kudos at the branding company behind the AP campaigns, Large. Based in London and Copenhagen they add quite of lot to fill out their clients curves (sales and sexiness). Their rhetoric is not especially ground breaking but the work is beautiful and effective. Which is usually more than enough.

Anyway, back to the AP site. They’ve tried to expand the experience by putting Mindy on Myspace and Facebook (we’re BFBFF) and do-it-yourself book covers that you can share on Flickr. All of which seem to have had an unfortunately luke warm start (I’m not sure about Myspace because I can’t find Mindy by searching. Myspace has the worst search on earth!) They also use the drip feed method of quality content fed to you over time. There will be more adventures released over time. If any brand should understand teasing it’s this one. In the name of fun and commerce, go visit.

I’ve been a fan of Junko Mizuno, the Japanese illustrator behind the reimagined Hansel & Gretel and Hell Babies (the vinyl cover is super), forever. So I was very happy to bump into this clip of the BBC’s Japanorama on Dadanoias. Junko is as cute as her creations so I’m sure you’ll enjoy the interview.

Here is the crash course on Junko Mizuno if you happen to have missed her in your cultural learnings.

 Phamous Picture

It seemed to take Phorever! I’ve finally spotted some new content on Phamous 69, everyone’s favourite diamante encrusted glam ero-disco magazine. If you haven’t seen it yet, picture high-end photography, film and writing applied to slick surfaces (including models) with a whiff of decadence. City kids swear by it.

Rikki Kasso

This is probably one of the most prolific creators on the net. Rikki Kasso is from Shibuya, Japan and runs 7 blogs, probably has a real job as well, draws, photographs and exhibits and also , I repeat, finds time to blog about it all. I’ve mentioned Tokyo Undressed before, and here is another of his projects, Behind The Lines. Impressive if only for the sheer volume of illustrations. If you’re a fan of ink and paper and Japanese bondage/furries you’ll get a kick out of this site. NSFW.

Behind The Lines

ps. Cool Girl 365 has a feature by Rikki Kasso. You’ll have to dig for it but the digging is fun. Again: NSFW.

Michael David Andre – Blurry Artist April 28, 2007

Michael David Andre is a guy who loves pornographic images and photoshop (for colour correction). His site is fairly safe for work considering what he builds his art out of: apparently mostly found porn images. The feel of his work is worth a look even if, like me, you’re not entirely convinced that this work has any resonance.

ADD:I got a mail from Michael explaining his work and technique, which I think is damn nice of him. The visual effect is interesting because it’s not a Photoshop creation. He says: “The distortion in my work is made using optical lenses in front of the Polaroid camera that I use to reshoot pictures.  Call it adaptive recycling if you really need a conceptual explanation.”

I find Autumn’s blog fascinating. She’s a photographer in Sao Paulo who has an amazing visual life. She bills herself as the Accidental Pornographer, a title I think she may deserve. There are some great life photographs on this blog and you’ll probably like her. I do. This is not really safe for work, but the restrained erotic far outweighs the graphic. You can feel the humidity when you dig into her previous posts.

Oh, Wicked Wanda! March 11, 2007

Wicked Wanda

Wicked Wanda was a cartoon strip that flighted in Penthouse during the 70’s, the Golden Age of softcore in my opinion. The illustrations by Ron Embleton are amazing and the number of political and entertainment figures who find themselves lampooned is startling. Make sure you look for all the little details in the opening scenes. Talk about a wide shot. For a cool read and an eye full of ample flesh go here.
