Erotic Artists.org is a free online photo gallery where anyone can display photos of their erotic artwork. Definitely one to bookmark as you’ll need much more than just a few hours to go through all the work that lives on the site as well as the other spin-off sites.
Found this amazing site off sugarcut: Montreal based performer and model Ella (aka Cicatrice), was severly burned as a child on approximately one third of her skinâ€™s surface. The resulting scarring is still markedly visible, yet bizarrely beautiful in the collection of artistic nudes, shot by various photographers exhibited on her site – cicatrix.net. Be sure to check out the detailed story of her accident which is an affecting and fascinating read.
You’d be forgiven if you think you’ve entered another Japanese web site when you visit blackmoontides but Rem is a female freelance illustrator based in Houston, TX USA. Love her illustration style.
Beautiful and twisted at the same time. Just how we love it! Fantastic drawings at Tatando.
Out there! Ana Laura AlÃ¡ez uses a mix of sculpture, drawing, architecture, video, photography and music. She also had her own page in the Spanish edition of VOGUE between the years 1999 â€“ 2001 and regularly writes and designs features for lifestyle magazines. (via).
Every Evil. Fantastic work by Japanese illustrator Ayaco. Some of it’s beautiful and some of it’s a little twisted. Love the use of pastel colours.
I’ve recently ventured overseas for a short jaunt into unfamiliarity, over to China for what feels now, like a very long (yet insanely short) 3 weeks of my life. I stumbled across Guo Jian’s work on my return to Australia and it captivated me straight away. His work so closely reflects the communist propaganda posters you see littering many Chinese homes and public spaces. I love the twist he puts on this prolific media, (which i found quite shocking during my travels). I hope you enjoy as well.
Doping-Pong is Russian, has very strange audio loops and some great diverse illustration work in the gallery.
Sydney based artist Julie Rrap has some very compelling work that we suggest you check out. Julie uses a myriad of media for her work, from photography to sculpture. I really like her work in photography and image manipulation. Be sure to have a look at her works from her “Soft Targets” exhibition which was shown at the Arc1 Gallery in Melbourne Australia in 2004. Julie also recently had an exhibition called “Fall Out” exhibited at the Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery in Sydney.
The lovely Kahlo of Dadanoias fame has updated her Flickr site with more great themed sets.
Jess Fink has been doing erotic comics for Eros/Fantagraphics books for the past 3 years. Her erotic paintings have also been featured in galleries and on other blogs. Recently, Jess (and a few other erotic comics writers) started up Adult Webcomics, an excellent free erotic comics site (to check out Jess’ work on this site go to “comics” then “Jess Fink”).
You can check out Jess’ official illustration site here, she’s currently working on a site just for her erotic work, but in the meantime (as a special treat!) you can view some of her diverse erotic work here.
Just a reminder that submissions close for the $10,000 adultshop.com Erotic Art Prize on December the 1st!!!
Australiaâ€™s first national erotic art prize was launched in 2005 through a partnership between AdultShop and ARTRAGE, with the inaugural prize going to Linda Ercegâ€™s â€˜Punch Lineâ€™. AdultShop now seek proposals Australia-wide for an exhibition that will feature works short-listed for the second adultshop.com Erotic Art Prize of $10,000 to occur in Perth, Western Australia in March 2007.

ZEHNUHR is the portfolio platform of Sebastian Waters, a young artist from Germany, whose main interests are doing collages in gluebooks and taking photos with his analogue and digital cameras. His gluebook collages are fantastic, you can view them in all their glory here and here.
