“All exploitive art should look like it’s been knocked up at 5am by some wasted bum who once had talent but is now seriously on the slide.”

The great Vampirella artist, Joe Jusko, once said “the two toughest things to paint are beautiful women and big cats”. And he was dead right. I can knock out a decent wolf now and then but my tiger’s truly suck. Fortunately (for me!) the big fad for tiger paintings fizzled out about 30 years ago but classic oil painted pin-up’s are still in demand. At least I hope so because I’m just about to start a new series of ’em!
