The Weimar Series

This recent series – made for Japanese magazine “Goddess love” (女神の愛) takes the theme of a drinking-club in 1920’s Germany, at the time of the Weimar Republic, where the main female characters are played by world-famous mistresses. I wanted to show a decadent and raffish atmosphere, but add a sense of nostalgia for a past period of modern history.
This is a club run by females for females, but also for subservient men so long as they are well behaved and paying :- if not, a strict management policy is enforced!


1. In the first scene Domina Liza, dressed in an opulent fur coat, is shown pointing to the illuminated entrance of the club. Her besotted and extremely wealthy slave will be required to take her inside for an exorbitantly expensive evening.


2. Now we see Lady Lola, playfully teasing a waiter who is dressed in a pretty waitress outfit. Her touch is obviously upsetting him so much he is likely to spill his tray at any moment.


3. The scene moves outwards to Mrs Weltsova who is sitting on a stool, sipping her cocktail, her feet being worshipped by an obviously drunk customer who is behaving very indecently .


4. Over comes Princess Aurora in her military-style costume and ejects him swiftly from the premises with a well-directed kick from polished boots. No rowdiness in this club!

In the tradition of these series it moves à la ronde back to the first image where the disgraced customer finds himself  collapsed in a heap and half-conscious beside the entrance.

The Sardax Fairytales

This recent series – made for Japanese magazine “Goddess love” (女神の愛) takes the theme of traditional fairytales where the main female character is played by a world-famous mistress.

Mistress Darcy as Snow White. This painting has been featured already  here.
She has captured her handsome prince in the little cottage and is preparing to take him from behind, to the great amusement of the seven dwarves surrounding her.

Mistress Eleise de Lacy as Rapunzel. She takes great delight in teasing the prince who has climbed the tower and is obviously entranced by the long tresses.

Mistress Chloe NY as Red Riding Hood. The ‘Big Bad Wolf’ stands no chance against this red-booted mistress. Together they will go to grandma’s cottage where they will open her basket and play with her toys!

Mistress Nikki Whiplash as Cinderella -making the prince sniff one glass slipper while he worships the other. Her coach in the background leaves us in no doubt of her kinky propensities.

The Funfair set of paintings

Following on the Gag-shop series, made for Japanese magazine “Goddess love” (女神の愛)  for my next “a la ronde” series where one frame leads to the next and back to the start, I requested four famous English mistresses to be models in an enactment of scenes from a femdom funfair.

In the first frame a pair of swing boats, supported by males tightly bound in black leather, showing the main participants in this series, Joanna Lark and Mistress Elizabeth Swan in the foreground and Mistress Evilyne and Mistress Elita.

In the second a carousel with male horses! Mistress Elizabeth is here riding one of her  submissives and behind them Mistress Evilyne with ‘kurdy’.

Then on to some stalls with a specialised form of femdom humiliation. The Shell Shock stall presents the ladies with the opportunity to humiliate males by throwing eggs at them. Mistress Evilyne enjoys the effect that a cracked egg makes as it trickles down the poor male’s head.

In the last frame a much darker scene – the “Torment Tent”. Mistress Elita touches a very suggestive lever of one of the electric shock-boxes, noticing the fear in the victim’s eyes, while Joanna Lark peeps in curiously.

Portrait of Mistress Amrita

mistressamrita_mid

Mistress Amrita is a very well-travelled Japanese mistress who is here depicted in a historical setting -perhaps a decadent scene from 1930’s Tokyo. Although she is wearing a traditional Chinese sheath dress (cheongsam) the setting of a screen and paper lamp makes it clear this is Japan. She sits on a wealthy businessman who has brought lots of money for her amusement. His amusement will only be the slashing of her whip which he now holds tightly in his mouth!

Please remember if you are commissioning for a birthday or anniversary to leave a few months as there is usually a waiting list for commissioned artwork.

Sidonia the Enchantress

I first got to know the beautiful and astonishingly influential Sidonia von Bork, the amazing force behind the English Mansion, in the early part of my career. Characteristically helpful towards an artist, she wanted to commission an artwork as she has done several times since. She named herself after a renowned German/Pomeranian femme fatale of the 16th Century who was accused of all sorts of wickedness. The pre-Raphaelite artist Edward Burne-Jones made her the subject of one of his paintings.

The present-day Sidonia is thoroughly English and in character nothing like the historical figure of course-all visitors leave the English Mansion completely safe and sound!  I was intrigued enough then to make my own drawing of her, dressed in a similar Renaissance costume.

Now I have returned to this historical theme for another series of the Japanese femdom magazine “Goddess Love”(女神の愛 ) depicting Sidonia as an enchantress, transforming the men who come to her Mansion and become enslaved in her universe. The costume is loosely medieval though this being a fantasy she is wearing modern-day stockings when she wishes…well – she is an enchantress so she can have what she wants.

SNAFU

Situation Normal All Fouled Up*

This post is about things going wrong. You may imagine -at least I hope you imagine -that paintings roll off the Sardax production-line effortlessly, fully formed and perfect. Nothing of the sort of course.

These days things do generally proceed well but that is because I have learn a few things throughout my career that have helped me to foresee problems and minimise unexpected trouble.

The best way to a successful outcome, as any ship’s captain will tell you, is thorough planning. If you do not plan sooner or later unforeseen events will come and blow your brave little ship off course. It is very tempting to just set sail hoping for the best. Many times I have foolishly done so -I’m a bit of an impetuous sort driven by the fire of inspiration – and bitterly regretted later not spending a little time planning in advance, thinking about the steps I would proceed through. Previously I would have to imagine in my head how things would work out but these days it’s so easy to make a digital rough that there’s no excuse before the brush even hits the paper.

But even with good planning if things start to go wrong you can still find ways of getting out of trouble and at least disguising the mistakes that have been made.

There are many ways of ‘wriggling out” but take this portrait of retired Japanese dominatrix Mistress Waka as one example.

mistresswaka

As is often my way I will start with the face and get this correct before continuing with the rest of the painting; after all why expend effort on the rest if the main focus is wrong?

So I pressed on but found out that the watercolour paper I had chosen was bringing out blotches in odd places-thankfully not the face-but I perhaps had spilt water on it previously and I was left with needing to cover the rough patches but looking like I meant to in the first place! So the chequered pattern on the panel in the background actually disguises some bad blotches and to a lesser extent the marble effect on the right hand wall. Thankfully after that was done I could bring the painting back on course but it was a situation that depressed me enough to consider ripping it up and starting again -a lot of cursing that day!

If you cannot retrieve the situation you may have to burn your bridges and go back to the start, something I have not had to do very often but which is quite humiliating. However it is not so bad as you have learnt from your mistakes what NOT to do and the result is far better than if you had pressed on with the previous effort. Though a lot of time has been wasted.

But doesn’t that all sound too rigid and what about freedom of thought and inspiration? Yes, of course you need that too and the unbridled imagination should come in the development stage but in the final painting it needs to be reined in and at that stage the head has to rule the heart.

Mistakes will occur..that’s understood but planning first will minimise trouble. If all else fails just start over!

* a more polite version of this popular acronym.

Alice in Wonderland – Set 2

The first set of four illustrations of Alice in Wonderland for Japanese femdom magazine “Goddess love”(女神の愛) featured in this post was very well received. So as soon as it was published I started to think up more ideas. Brighton dominatrix Kountess von Kink graciously modelled as Alice (I had learnt while making the previous series she had long been a fan of the book and even played Alice in a school play.) The ideas did not flow as easily as the first set however and an adjustment was needed.

Alice rides a lobster through the sea

Why a lobster?

This illustration started as a single-page incorporating the griffon and the mock turtle vaguely indicated in the background, the reference being to the Lobster Quadrille.

The original single page rough before extension

The fourth was a rather weak idea about the croquet game. I felt that being the only watery piece it did not fit in with the other woodland ideas so rather than drop it (as I really liked the lobster concept) I extended the drawing into a double-page spread, eliminating the fourth painting and changed the scene from being in intimate contact to sitting on its back and riding it. Once I gave myself the extra space to develop it I felt sure I had made the right decision. Moreover, in a “what-the-hell” moment I simply abandoned the whole idea of including the mock-turtle and griffon as now irrelevant. Artistic licence or such.

I felt that after this I had exhausted the ideas in Alice in Wonderland but there was still ‘Alice through the looking-glass’ to consider and as I shall reveal in a forthcoming post, I tackled that in a rather different way…
