I work in a practice that strives to combine the pictorial elegance of a gum-bichromate print by Robert Demachy with the grand scope of contemporary science fiction. Each piece in the series begins with the construction of a miniature set created out of found objects, and customized ready-made materials...'  

Who Writes Erotic Fiction?

Erotica // Thursday, August 22, 2013
Slate.com is debunking the question of who is behind erotic fiction in conjuction with photographer David Woolfall. Who is dreaming up accounts of leather-clad dominatrixes and mid-day office romances that are driving erotic sales higher everyday? They're not necessarily who you might expect-- these saucy authors are by and large women. Woolfall reached out to some of these women and found that they are often conservative, shy people, quick to emphasize that their stories and characters are not based on their own lives and desires.

Erotica // Wednesday, August 21, 2013
This super sexy animation from Adams Carvalho also has a wonderfully charming tactile feel to it. By rotoscoping over film, Carvalho gives a cartoonish feel to this simple character as she performs a sexy little dance, allowing the hand of the artist to seep into the project. We love the simple use of white to demarcate the t-shirt and blackspots to create moments of shadow and depth. Though simple, this animation was sure to have taken a lot of work and effort, and we love the outcome in this lovely little homage to a lover.
