And so, it begins...

Welcome to the first installment of my weekly blog!

More than ten years ago I discovered the community of male foot and tickling fans through the mail order club The Foot Fraternity by accidentally stumbling across one of their ads in a magazine. This was pre-internet, before it was as easy as typing the word "tickling" into Google and having hundreds of sites at your fingertips.

I'd always been aroused by tickling, but had no idea that I wasn't alone. Material on the subject of male tickle torture was rare, and I when the contacts I made through the FootFrat found out that I was an artist I got many requests for drawings. I did roughly a dozen black and white illustrations, and traded them for some other materials.

Years later, the internet arrived and suddenly tickle fetishists had ways to find both material and each other. I was surprised to find a few of my drawings showing up on message boards now and then. They had sometimes even been altered to fit someone else's specific fantasy.

I've been working as a professional illustrator for the past 10 years, and I recently made the decision to get back into fetish art. This site is the companion to my male tickling illustration website www.achillesheelart.com. In this blog I'll be addressing questions I receive from members, listing the most interesting requests I get that week and occasionally posting sketches of works in progress.
