Dom & Sub is a body of illustrative work in digital media that attempts to humanize practitioners of BDSM and offer a representation of kinky sex that not only refutes negative stereotypes but informs the audience that sadomasochistic play is done best between happy, healthy, and consenting adults. I portrayed the couple in the work not only engaging in S&M play but also building a “scene” together and nurturing one another after the play has concluded; these are moments often left unconsidered or completely ignored in visual representations of S&M. I believe it’s important to see how kinky scenes are crafted with care, commitment to safety and enthusiastic consent in order to limit those times when sadomasochistic play is used to abuse or dehumanize other human beings. It is my hope that my audience will learn from the illustrations that sadomasochistic play is not always dark or scary, and that fellow ‘kinksters’ can enjoy tender representations of S&M that do not ridicule or pathologize them. I’ve designed the work to engage sadomasochistic imagery, material and theory with an ethical conscience.
Okay, normally I would take photos of my products with my good camera but this hat is like.. cursed or something. While sewing it, it broke three of my new good needles. I never break needles.
I want it out!
Get this hat, inspired by the ‘OFF’ game! I always raffle off prototypes (final product is always cleaner, more symmetrical.etc but instead of chucking prototypes.. I give them away!) for new products I carry. This is 100% hand-made by me. Machine sewn with APPLIQUED eyes and mouth for a professional look!
