I’d like to introduce my audience to my good friend Joey St. John, an erotica artist I met at our gay life drawing group over a decade ago. Joey’s art fascinates me because he’s like me in a few respects: We go through the motions of academic figure drawing and navigating the somewhat pretentious world of gay fine art in NYC, but our passion is in much more imaginative, much more commercial-looking erotic art.
Oddly not many of our peers are into comics and animation and many look down on these contemporary forms of art. Joey and I understand how classically rendered male anatomy can intersect with modern erotic illustration.
I appreciate how fun and fantastical his comics get. He’s also a big ol’ perv, like me- lol. Check out his new site and lookout for our collaboration project (I’m dipping my toes back into sequential art again!) which will combine his Santa with my St.Nick Jr. and a bunch of horny little elves!
