In Pink

“In Pink” is an exciting new femdom e-book by Miss Irene Clearmont.
I was commissioned to provide a cover illustration shown here.
Yes, it’s one of those nasty nurses I so love to paint!

The authoress says about her book:-

‘In Pink’ is the first of five strict femdom novels by Miss Irene Clearmont that transport the reader a place where wealthy women can indulge their tastes in female domination without any restraints. This first novel follows the vacation of Mistress Alexa as she journeys to the ‘Domain’s, a luxurious theme park, whose delights match Mistress Alexa’s taste in personal service by feminised slaves who are shaped to fulfil her every fantasy. ‘In Pink’ is the introductory novel that takes the reader to a fetish world like no other, gives the lay of the land and shows what is possible when a scheming female-led corporation caters for the dominant whims of its elegant guests. But, there is a darker purpose to the Domains, a conspiracy that is hatching beneath the lace and latex of the guests’ erotic pleasures, a ruthless need for female control that threatens to change the very order of the world. This novel is as much a thriller as it is erotica, a character novel as much as a thrill for the reader, blending intimate moments and plot in a climactic rush of emotion that is not complete when the perfect vacation is finally over.

Miss Irene Clearmont writes on the darker side of female domination. This novel, and the four that follow are the culmination of over twenty years of writing in the genre. Her writing style is mature, intense, tightly plotted, playing with the mind and sensibilities of her readers, laying bare sexual pleasure and gratification in tales that suck the reader into a maelstrom of fetish and female sexual pleasure. Strong characters, plot twists, graphic domination and adult prose are her trademark; ‘In Pink’ is the start of a journey that will stagger even the readers that are now her devotees.

Mrs Weltsova

Last summer I had the great pleasure of meeting the charming Mrs Weltsova in London, on vacation from her home in New York . She is a lady of East European extraction and passionately devoted to the disciplinary arts.

We had previously become acquainted online and had both been invited to a summer Femdom party near London but owing to an unfortunate cancellation we arranged to meet up anyway so as not to waste the evening. After a delicious Japanese meal and an introduction for her to the London pub, I took the opportunity of gifting her a book I illustrated many years ago-“Queen of the Grove”.

I had been producing illustrations for an occasional journal  “The Governess” in the early ’90s. Apart from the watercolours which is my usual technique these days, I was also developing a style of black & white illustration – itself reminiscent of an earlier era.

“The Governess” magazine also produced a number of books for which illustrations were commissioned and this book was the first of them – and to my mind the best – a collection of stories by the pseudonymous Louise Malatesta. Over one summer I was quite inspired to develop this dramatic monochrome style, and the book sold well, published by Chardmore Press who still retain the rights. You can buy a e-book version here, though the printed book is definitely worth acquiring if you can find it.

Mrs Weltsova was delighted with the book and commissioned me to reprise this style in a set of artwork for one of her own stories called The Secret Garden.

The style is still there. But though much is still drawn with brush and ink, a lot of digital modification goes on after scanning, replacing the traditional method of erasing pencil lines and altering by white paint (with resultant crumpled paper!)

Together with the story these make an original and exciting addition to Mrs Weltsova own personal blog.
