Tea for Two, Two for Tea.

A lazy day at home with my beautiful fiance, topped off with an impromptu indoor picnic.  Treats consisted of potato matchsticks, home made aioli dipping sauce, and pink fizzy drinks.

Untitled #2

Stupidity, politics,
The calm exterior belies a seething pit of human detrious.
The right to call oneself a person - once an automatic response - is now called in to question.  The minute your foot is set inside the door, your fate is sealed.
No salvation, living from heartbeat to heartbeat, from hope to hope - ever just a peripheral glimmer, waking dream, a lost reflection in a murky pond, a drop in the ocean.
Where does it end?  Where did it begin?

Coquettish Fetish

Angelique Houtkamp is a dutch born tattoo artist, painter and shoe designer, whose feminine images range from glamourous pinup girls gently whispering their hoodoo proclivities, like in the paintings Love/hate, Magda and Vertimae, to slightly sapphic, androgenous figures, such as in Brunhilde and Sailorette.  Angelique's enticing flash prints display a touch 1920's glamour, while hinting at a modern splendor defined by the oh-so-delicate line work and flawlessly feminine finish that each print reveals.


"Love/Hate"



"Vertamae"


"Sailorette"

Pen Lust


French artist Antoinette Fleur has a rich, colourful style which is sexy and feminine.  Her rapid, sketchy hand lends an air of frivolity and lightness, which is at the same time bold and atmospheric.  The girls she portrays are elegant and chic, with an added air of bohemia.
