More Than a Friend describes a relationship between Montreal based visual artists Krista Bursey and Jason Wasserman who create paintings and illustrations in collaboration at every step of the artistic process, conceiving all the ideas together, and then executing different areas of the surface, often painting or drawing over each others work.

Some interesting work by French Photographer Pierre Radisic. Each piece is made of 6 black and white photographs which are arranged together in order to create interesting compositions. Some of it’s a little hardcore but most of the compositions are beautiful and they really capture intimate moments. (via).
The female form has been the most widely photographed subject since the invention of the camera. Musa (Muse in Spanish) is a book released by new publisher Macula de Plata which focusses on six photographers who talk about their lives, work and what inspires them (always a fascinating and inspiring topic). The book explors the photographer-model relationship through interviews with acclaimed practitioners of erotic and nude photography such as Luis Durante (Spain), Roy Stuart (France), Charlie Roff (England), Jock Sturges (United States), Vlastimil Kula (Czech Republic) and Tony Keeler (Spain).
More words and less pictures (99 pages with 12 black-and-white photos) in both English and Spanish, one for the bedside table. More info here.
“Zoetica” (as she refers to herself on her bio page) is the gothic brainchild behind Biorequiem. This website showcases her paintings and photographs (including some very nice punky self portraits). Her artwork is quite intriguing, she has strayed into the macabre which you’ll see in the gallery titled 2002 to Present. I found some of her imagery somewhat disturbing, but I couldn’t pull myself away.
Cool name, Cool Photography, Cool art… She hits all my buttons with her retro pop art, pill poppin’ pieces… But then i’m a bit of a pop art freak. :) Nubby Twiglet is the online name for Shauna, of Portland, Oregon. Her work is sharp, sleek, and deliciously red. Her site also links to her online diary, which is well worth a browse.
I struggled to find anything out about this cool school illustrator, all i know is that they live in Belgium and have a cat called Moby. Thanks to “on-my-desk” blogspot. :) Interesting work, very ecclectic.
I love Ian Haig’s work, it kinda makes me feel uneasy, but warm and fuzzy at the same time, and I can’t quite pinpoint why. He works in a bunch of different mediums from sculpture to painting and there are a couple of little animations that are worth a gander on his site as well.
I found Annie’s site so informative. :) Its an awesome read. Annie Sprinkle is a self proclaimed “prostitute/porn star turned performance artist/sexologist”. Having passionately researched and explored sexuality for thirty years. She creates her own unique sex films, photographic work, and teaches workshops and college lectures.
There’s heaps of interesting stuff to check out on her site, well worth a browse.
Sexy Latex is a classy little Swedish blog which focusses on promoting latex and fetish photography. Definitely worth checking out whether you’re into latex or not.
Great work by London born artist Trevor Brown. His cute and nasty work depicts children and dolls in adult situations which could be considered as being quite dangerous (we’ll leave it up to you to decide). Whichever way you look at his work, whether you try to read all sorts of deep insightful implications into it, or merely view it as eye candy, we’re sure you’ll agree that Trevor’s very talented at what he does.
Steven Miller is a stunning photographer with a refreshing sense of humour, his bunny series is well worth a gander, as is his “milky” series. Technically stunning, and highly humorous. His website is also very nicely set out and showcases his work beautifully.
Juul de Vries is a Dutch photographer who creates some very special photomontages. I love how his photographs are colour graded, his prints utilise transparent retouching dyes which result in images with an aura of the unreal. (via).
Some slick photography work by Belgium based photographer Marc Lagrange.
Coining a new style: PERSPECTVIST – Todd Kurtzmann produces some very original and intriguing pieces. He makes small scale sculptures to look as if they were hundreds of feet in size, or alternatively as if they were normal size figures viewed by someone very tiny.
Magical and refreshing, we are sure you will be intrigued by his work.
OK, this one’s a bit more hardcore than usual, be prepared to check out skin heads, skater boys, and punks all enjoying male company in intimate ways. This is in your face pin up art, and personally, I totally dig Drub’s work, heaps of colour and humour. It’s very out there and comical at the same time, but it aint going to be everyone’s cup of tea.
