My Collage “Porntraits” (as I call them), are recreations of the female models who posed for money or a chance at fame in Playboy, Penthouse, Rascal, or Jem magazines. I only use vintage adult magazines that date between 1950-1978 since the women, of the not so distant past, exude a unique innocence and charm that appeals to men as well as women. Each collage starts with a pencil outline onto a wood panel.  Next, I cut and tear pieces of magazine pages and apply with varnish, filling in each section of the sketched playmate with overlapping pieces of paper. I use various faded or aged text pages for the skin tones and photos, backgrounds, ads, etc for to complete each model.  The backgrounds are left natural so your eye can easily follow the curves of each model to draw or perhaps seduce the viewer to get closer to discover the intimate details.
