The variety and breadth of Vivian O'Shaughnessy's drawings illustrate the way she observes the world around her and the excitement with which she records it on paper. Her marks are representations of our society from a dialogue within.

Michael Harwood is known for his intimately erotic photographs of gifted men, shot in his versatile New York apartment.

Martin of Holland invites artists and other creative types to join his community. It includes Martin's raunch & perversions, and artists are invited to submit their "kinky" work. Memberships are only approved if their works qualify.

Diego Tolomelli presents homo-erotic stained glass. Diego had been trained in the full range of stained glass techniques and has mastered his craft in two of the UK's most prestigious studios.

Bearoitc Art by Neil Bruce presents an overview and a very small portion of his works, including examples of nearly all the media's he works in: Photoshop, pencil drawing, oil painting, and sculpture.

With a bachelor of fine arts degree, Roscoe shifted from commercial advertising towards the erotic arts in 1998. Inspired by Tom of Finland and the Hun, his later works include "The Adventures of Timmy" series.
