Like I said, this was a tough one for me to figure out. In the end I decided the closest thing I have to a fetish is falling in love with a series of fictional characters. I have a thing for grumpy, sarcastic guys in particular, and chief among them is Garrus Vakarian, of the Mass Effect trilogy. It's actually spun into what could be a small series akin to Kali Ciesemier's awesome zine, All My Anime Boyfriends, at this point. So maybe I'll give that a shot when I have a little more time!
Initially I didn't plan on doing a piece this week because I couldn't think of anything other than the lyrics of a Rihanna song. When I mentioned this to my little brother, he thought of Hedonismbot, so I did a quick cut-out of one of my favorite Futurama characters. It's kind of a dirty gold color, which I think is pretty apt.
And I couldn't help but hear "Djambi!" in my head while doing this.
Next piece coming in a few hours!
Found myself kind of fascinated when I came across "Forniphilia" while doing a little research for this challenge. It 's a form of bondage and sexual objectification in which a person's body is incorporated into a piece of furniture...
I've been inspired a lot lately by the work of Erte, simplifying & stylizing and trying to find that sweet spot of illustration perfectly married with design.
