The Demon Sisters ~ Scanty & Kneesocks
Dom & Sub is a body of illustrative work in digital media that attempts to humanize practitioners of BDSM and offer a representation of kinky sex that not only refutes negative stereotypes but informs the audience that sadomasochistic play is done best between happy, healthy, and consenting adults. I portrayed the couple in the work not only engaging in S&M play but also building a “scene” together and nurturing one another after the play has concluded; these are moments often left unconsidered or completely ignored in visual representations of S&M. I believe it’s important to see how kinky scenes are crafted with care, commitment to safety and enthusiastic consent in order to limit those times when sadomasochistic play is used to abuse or dehumanize other human beings. It is my hope that my audience will learn from the illustrations that sadomasochistic play is not always dark or scary, and that fellow ‘kinksters’ can enjoy tender representations of S&M that do not ridicule or pathologize them. I’ve designed the work to engage sadomasochistic imagery, material and theory with an ethical conscience.
YES YES YES
cute cute cute! <3
this is why i can’t have nice things
My two pictures put together, a big happy family c:
Jake Jr. preview! I was going to work on Charlie after T.V., but I just didn’t want to sew a face ever again, so Jake Jr. was perfect. I’ve finished her since this pic and given her better arms and legs (also ones that are the right colors, since it seems like the colors were wrong in the screen cap I was looking at initially). I made 2 for Katsucon. I’m keeping the prototype for now. ^_^ I was creeped out by Jake Jr. at first, but after I made the plush I felt like she was super adorable.
I also realized I’m really bad at making things to scale with other things, because I felt like Kim Kil Whan was small next to T.V. and I feel like T.V. is small next to Jake Jr., so let’s just say I’m making a uhhh timeline of their growth. Or something.
