Do you like the internet?

Oh, I know, everyone says they do.

Three things:

1. Check out the amazing art of Ray Caesar, reminiscent of work by Mark Ryden (and Loretta Lux too, actually). I'm particularly in love with cat girl, supergirl, the girl with the eyeball and the girl with the unwieldy cranial protrusion and fibrous arms. Deliciously wrong.

2. I stumbled across a new word today: 'callipygian'. It is my gift to you, and to your perfectly formed buttocks.

3. And lastly, look, I am not kidding about this: clicking on the next link will take you directly to Batman and Robin porn. (I concede: this isn't going to work out for everyone, but I think it's neat, in an 'Oh dear' sort of way.)

whoaa, thanks for the tip on Ray Caesar hot soup girl. that man is my new favourite artist. Almost a rip off of Mark Ryden but they're so damn good, it just doesn't matter. Interesting to find out though that they're completely computer generated. I thought they were paintings for sure but they're actually made with 3D software of some sort. Damn, that Bat Girl rules!

Oh boy! If you enjoy Ryden and Caesar (two of my favrites also) then I think I can guarantee that you're going to like Trevor Brown, and possibly Lori Earley as well.

When I first saw Brown's work (at a gallery in Italy, of all places) I thought, hey, this guy's copying Ryden, only in a slightly more x-rated way. But it turns out that Brown has been plying his craft for quite a long time.

Oh, and I'm not anonymous, but Blogger says I am.

I really liked Mark Ryden, but hadn't heard of the others. Lorreta Lux is AWESOME. =)

Thanks for bringing around into my day!

Soon after I dropped out of college the first time, I worked in a print shop by day and a bartender by night. I used my connections at the shop to have a wide variety of rubber stamps made that we used at the bar to mark the "of age" patrons. One of my favorite invented stamps was one that simply said "callipygian" in a nice script. I had forgotten all about that... thanks for the great trip back to those fun days.

I linked to this batman site a while ago, and it quickly became very popular with my female readers... as you can imagine.

Love Mark Ryden, but with a tiny reservation in that his wispy baby face girl is totally based on his own child. Thanks for the tips to the others. Juxtapoz magazine is good for this type of art. A recent photo I saw of Jane Fonda had a Ryden on her wall in the background. For a cool pic please look at my Melbourne blog
