We “Bubble” Some Local Models

I don’t know much about the doctrines of Mormonism but the Internet revealed that a Mormon on a bodybuilding forum wasn’t too happy that the terms and conditions of his religion prohibited the viewing of naked bodies. In his earnest desire to see nudity that wasn’t there, this horny lad said he created a radical technique called bubbling. In all likelihood, it originated from the bowels of the Internet, 4chan, however I’m not going to investigate further – every time I go there, I see something I really wish I hadn’t…

Bubbling involves loading a photo of one or more bikini-clad ladies in a graphics editor and applying a set of circular cutouts in strategic locations. This gives the illusion that said ladies are completely naked. The young Mormon’s results were quite convincing so we thought we’d give it a go too. Armed with a tutorial (see here), we set about bubbling, not just anyone mind you, but some home-grown models. Have a look at our creations after the jump.

Arty Eating and Drinking

Pin-ups and Junk Food

After a day of reconciliation binge drinking, both Lucy Furr and I are feeling a tad fragile. I don’t quite know what hangover cure would do best, but I’m thinking it has to be junk food, with a side order of pin-up girls.

Toronto-based illustrator Wendy Ding has created a series entitled “Food Girls” that placed sexy naked women in unexpected scenes, for example in between a hot dog roll, smothered in tomato sauce. I know what you’re thinking and yes, I too would love a hot dog roll right about now. The Food Girls series can be seen after the jump – there are exposed boobies so view with caution.

Matt Dixon’s Ghoulish Gals

A Halloween party is just around the corner and I’m flummoxed for ideas. I had thought of going as a flasher, it would be a truly frightening experience for all involved, but I’m not prepared to clean up the vomit that would erupt from the mouths of the traumatized victims. To get further inspiration* I find myself looking at the freaky femmes, the ghoulish gals, the horrific honeys (OK enough of that) of illustrator and concept artist, Matt Dixon.

Have a look at some of the cuties after the jump.


Mike Giant

I did not know this. And now I am enlightened. Born near sighted and colour blind, Mike Giant is now a celebrated tattooist, illustrator, and graffiti artist. A master of the black and white image, Giant draws inspiration (I almost wrote constipation, my bad.) from “cholo” life, Mexican folk art, and Japanese illustration. See some of his art below [NSFW].
