Rat Patrol

This piece is called, “Rat Patrol.” The name was going to be “Desolation,” or “Desolate Rider,” but one of my friends suggested that it seemed as though my lady was on a mission. So I floated “Rat Patrol,” and about six of my friends said, “Yes!” (Afterwards, I briefly regretted not calling it “Naked Mole…

Fantasy Nudes/Composites

Fantasy Nudes/Composites

In addition to the more traditional styles of artistic nudes, and the occasional boudoir photography session, one of my favorite forms of photography is what I call “fantasy nudes.” These are typically composites, and as you might guess from the name, I fill them with fantastical elements, or ideas, including sometimes science-fiction themes.

Photoshop Painting

First, apologies to the IE folks who haven’t been able to view the site.  As noted elsewhere, I had to make significant code changes to the original theme.  In the process, I left a “- ->” off the end of one line, which apparently confounded Internet Explorer.  I’ve used Firefox for so long that I…
