Mitchell's A-Z of Fetish Artists - My Favourite 'K'

It's my custom to select a favourite artist from each letter based on consideration of fetish content, technical skill, sensuality and story-telling. The letter K has interesting candidates. 
Kent's artistry and fetish content is powerful but doesn't spark fantasies within me in the same way as Kok and Kai's equally accomplished work. Klaus von Brandenburg also has great fetish content and story lines to fantasise over but somehow his heroes lack personality and the static situations don't work for me. Kirwan's fetish diversity is amazing and full of observation and humour, but is it sexy? Kuchar and Kalabro's work is interesting for presenting the male body in slightly distorted way which accentuates it's sexuality. If Kuchar's subject matter were a touch less frivolous he'd be amongst my front runners here. 
Kalabro - Electrocution Proof

But really there is only one possible winner for me and that is Kalabro. His work has sense of drama and action which none of the other contenders come close to. To do this without losing sexiness is quite an achievement (just think how most action hero comics fall tantalisingly short of being sexy, Kalabro doesn't!). The marriage of cute faces and strangely beautiful, angular limb shapes overcomes the absence of sensuality in skin tones and musculature. His subject matter is daring technically and explores dark, dangerous scenarios but keeps on the right side of the 'forbidden' line for me - but I guess that's a matter of taste.
