I am reflecting on my own sexual predilections, my 'Male Gaze', relating the use of erotic art as an expression of the spiritual to my own enjoyment of pornography, and exploring the fuzzy, mucky, grey area between. Still untying the knots conditioning me that sex is naughty. These drawings help me analyse all this stuff, and to accept that that is how I am.
