Again in the private Wonderland of Yuumei

I am following as well as I can the artwork by this Chinese girl of great talent (Yuumei (Wenqing Yan)); and I’m lost for words to express my admiration toward it. Since I do not have much spare time for blogging, either, I won’t comment much on the particular illustrations I present. Instead I will… Continue reading Again in the private Wonderland of Yuumei

Another portrait from Beyond

This one goes with a little purple glow in the eyes, as I figure she may show now, while she moves within eternity, like the dreams. And again, as I use to, given that these are portraits of an Angel, I recall verses from R. M. Rilke’s “Duineser Elegien”: “… Und jene, die schön sind,… Continue reading Another portrait from Beyond

A Pictorial Tribute (II) – Delvaux’s ‘Ari’ better explained and illustrated

Some of my Heroines… and a Little Hero

–This is a very fragmentary draft left by Ariel, and I do not feel capable to complete it beyond the few notes I have added to this moment –mostly to make it understandable and more or less presentable–. The subject and the fictional characters Ariel chose are so deeply hers that any tentative I could… Continue reading Some of my Heroines… and a Little Hero

Déjà vu, déjà vécu – A Humble Defence of Hentai Manga

I like manga, and now also hentai manga (yaoi-oriended), because I find in it some illustrations very difficult (perhaps impossible) to see elsewhere. Twenty-five, and more, years ago nobody could draw a teen girl showing her “pee” like this one here… No way; no possible public acceptance. Boys could be gay, could be effeminate, could… Continue reading Déjà vu, déjà vécu – A Humble Defence of Hentai Manga

A detailed ‘Soft Monster in Angelic Landscape’ (Monstre Tou en Paisatge Angèlic) – A last confidence by Dalí on impotence and psychological castration

Salvador Dalí’s father was a monster. Salvador Dalí i Cusí, a middle-class lawyer and notary in Figueres (a Catalan city close to the French border), with a strict catholic faith and a stricter disciplinary approach toward his family, made of his second son –Salvador Domingo Felip Jacint Dalí i Domènech– a deranged person; a real… Continue reading A detailed ‘Soft Monster in Angelic Landscape’ (Monstre Tou en Paisatge Angèlic) – A last confidence by Dalí on impotence and psychological castration
