Sweet pussy

Thanks to Ekaterina Split_mini-LDG for the submission of her with her sweet pussy. No info on any of the mods was included but maybe she’ll let us know more about the (what I assume are custom made) plugs she’s wearing.

PS I apologize to both her and you, dear reader, for my lack of imagination when it comes to titles.

Artist Campaign

I was asked to share the following from an artist who is running an IndieGogo campaign:

Aloha! My name is Rose Adare, I’m an evocative artist disabled by a muni train in 2005. To get through the hard times, I began painting truly inspiring, brilliant, out of the box people, and now I have solid offers for shows guaranteed in Oakland, San Francisco, Seattle, AND Brooklyn, NY! But I need your help to get there!

I’m not asking for plane tickets or hotels. I’ll sleep on couches and eat ramen. But I need help with shipping and production costs.

I’ve had three amazing shows already, at the Hawaii Museum of Contemporary Art, The J+ Gallery in Holualoa, and the prestigious Maui Arts & Cultural Center’s Schaefer Portrait Gallery, but now it’s time to reach the mainland.

Hawai’i is 75 miles across and is 2,467 miles from California. That’s a long distance to move 31 paintings, 5 plexiglass shadowboxes, and 35 plexiglass descriptions—especially when some of the paintings are 10 x 7 feet! The powerful success behind Restraint & Revolution “took a village,” and now it’ll “take a continent” to move across the ocean.

Photo of the Day

‘But I don’t want to go among mad people,’ Alice remarked.
‘Oh, you can’t help that,’ said the Cat: ‘we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.’
‘How do you know I’m mad?’ said Alice.
‘You must be,’ said the Cat, ‘or you wouldn’t have come here.’

As someone with Alice in Wonderland tattoos, I’m a big fan of this tattoo by Alexander Yanitskiy of Kipod in Tel Aviv. I’m always impressed with the work I see coming out of this shop and this is no exception. They have a variety of artists working there and they all seem to be equally talented.
