Art should never have to apologise for being art. Sometimes it’s provocative, unabashed and liberated. And yes, sometimes it doesn’t know when to put some trousers on.
Jago Dibuja‘s drawings some may describe as “risqué”. Some may them describe as evidence of a healthy appreciation of the human body. But just because this Spanish artist’s work may show more skin that a KFC bargain bucket, doesn’t mean the deliberate skill in his line work, his graceful shading and his glow-strengthened black outlines is something to be taken for granted. His craft is one that’s been well developed. And though I know nothing about this artist, I’m 100% confident I’ve used the correct pronoun.
Click the link to look through Jago Dibuja’s site where he posts regular fan art sketches of various gaming, comic and original characters, both in basic shading and full colour. Also check out his comic series, Living with Hipster Girl & GamerGirl, following the awkward life experiences of 2 women, Sophie (the hipster) & Erika (the gamer) living with their male friend, Artur. Other friends Elly (a nervous purple haired pre-teen) and Clara (a faux-feminist with a bat) habitually join the fun, in a world where loose fitting, underwear exposing jeans and at least 75% of your cleavage on display is seemingly a government requirement. Suffice to say, Artur’s life is like the 5 minutes after the first 5 minutes of every hentai, as told through 1 or 2 comic panels. And he even offers them in Spanish AND English. Now isn’t that thoughtful.
