WARNING: Artwork depicting nude women ahead.

When it comes to the female form, way before Jordi Labanda, Jason Brooks, Nicola Scott, Joëlle Jones, Naoko Takeuchi, and Jenny Frison became my idols, it was the fierce and daring pieces of Olivia De Berardinis that shaped my aesthetics.

I remembered flipping through the pages of my dad’s Penthouse mag when I was eleven (yes) and saw De Berardinis’s Banshee piece. That image has stayed with me ever since. It’s like a much sexier (and less nightmarish) HR Giger.

I’ve always been gay and had known it even when I first saw her art, but there’s something about her work that influenced my fetishes and attraction towards homoerotic artists like Tom of Finland, Dom Orejudos (Etienne), George Quaintance, and Marc Debauch.

I can’t draw for shit, but I’m kind of okay with photography, so for National Cheesecake day, here’re Chrissy pin-ups in the style of Berardinis.
