Mitchell's A-Z of Fetish Artists - Humbug

This is a Japanese Artist – at least I think it's one artist - but there are two distinctive styles, both shown here.

One (below) is conventional cartoon like drawing, the other has a less distinct, roughed out appearance which combined with strong colouring is a refreshingly different style. The subjects are drawn with thick hairy outlines – normally taboo, but it works fine here.

The characterisations are typically Japanese with sharply defined, minimal features, lots of gritted teeth and strange colourations suggestive of other-worldliness.

The imagery is strong but leaves plenty for the viewer to sort out. I like the understated subject matter, there isn't too much going on. The man being carried off is a favourite domination motif for me although this example isn't too sinister.
