Spitzer Gets His...

Every now and then a request is going to come along that will require that I do it immediately, while the person or event is still in the news. Such was the case with my piece this week "Politickle Punishment". When it came out that Eliot Spitzer had a thing for leaving his knee-high dress socks on while he did the deed with his hooahs, foot fetishist's ears perked up.

The request asked for Eliot to be put on public display in stocks in his dress socks to be properly punished. To be honest, this one felt a little mean to me at first...kind of like kicking a man when he's down. When I pointed this out to the guy who requested the drawing, he suggested injecting a little humor into the scenario by having the tickler be that NYC pseudo-celebrity, the Naked Cowboy.

Sloth's piece this week is a classic tentacle tickling piece he calls "Binding Nemo". A hunky mermaid is at the mercy of a huge, undersea squid tickle monster!


Next week we're going to reach a special milestone: 50 pieces of artwork in the member's section! I'm doing a special piece that wil be free for everyone to mark the occasion. Thanks to each and every member for helping us keep this venture going with your memberships. We couldn't do it without you.

Call Me Carrie Bradshaw...

Remember that episode of Sex And The City when Carrie's computer died and she hadn't backed anything up, ever?


Well, it's not that bad.

I'm actually pretty good about backing things up, but I don't do it as often as I should. Good thing, because Easter Sunday, my iMac took the big dirt nap. It had been acting screwy for awhile, but when I brought it to the 'geniuses' a few months ago, they couldn't find anything wrong with it. I have most of my Achilles artwork backed up, but I lost the high-res versions of my last two pieces.

Luckily, I had just ordered myself a new laptop with my tax refund. I've been needing one that was powerful enough to do some work on the road. It arrived last Thursday, just in time.

Most of this past weekend (when I'm normally busy drawing and coloring) was spent desperately trying to save data off of the old machine, and getting the laptop up to speed with software, drivers, etc.

Sloth did a wonderful piece for today that was requested from a member: Iroh from "Avatar the Last Airbender" getting foot tickle tortured for information. The characters from this show are a perfect fit for Sloth's style.


Now that I'm up and running again (at 1am on Sunday), I'm hoping to have a new piece on either Thursday or Friday for you guys. It's going to take a little adjustment to do all of my work on a laptop, but since my iMac is still under warranty, it shouldn't have to be for very long.

Happy Easter!

A Wall of Feet

The color version of "Gallery of Laughs" has been posted. This will be the last time I attempt to draw more than 5 pairs of feet in one image (at least, for awhile). Despite the amount of time it took, this turned out to be one of my favorite pieces. I have to admit that the idea of a wall of anonymous male feet is certainly an appealing one. The tough part of this drawing was trying to give each pair it's own distinct look and personality.

Added to our Free Archive this week is one of the earliest drawings that Sloth ever did for the site. He was playing around with some foot photos I had given him (I have a lot of...ahem...reference material), and one of the poses struck him as being perfect for a flying superhero. This isn't a tickling drawing, just a sexy barefoot hero. Who knows? He could show up sometime in the future at the mercy of some evil fetishist villain...


See you next Monday!

A Two-Part Update

I knew there was a reason I was putting this request off...

This week I chose to tackle a request I received when the site first launched. A member wanted to see foot tickling as an art installation piece: bare feet sticking out of a wall inviting visitors to the gallery to tickle them. Video monitors would show the laughing faces of the men being tickled.

I have to say this was the most challenging request to pull off so far. So much so, that I didn't allot myself enough time to get the coloring finished in time for today's update. The fully colored piece will be added on Tuesday.

This piece involves NINE tickle victim's laughing faces and bare feet (Although, to be fair, you can only clearly see seven). The really tricky part involved how to show a relationship between the anonymous feet and the faces on the video monitors. I tried to draw feet that looked like they belonged to each corresponding face. The relationships will become much clearer in the color drawing.


Look for the color version on Tuesday, along with a few additions to the Free Archive section!

Big Update This Week (for us...)

Hey gang,

This week brings three new images for your enjoyment!

Last week I took on Sloth's character Buck Nova at the request of a member. Now, Sloth returns the favor by drawing the King from my old piece in "Still Good to be King" (I've affectionately named him "King Laughsalot"). A member had requested a sequel to my piece in which the King was getting tickled a bit more intensely.

Second, I'm thrilled this week to present Mr. Zikkon's first page in his continuing serial, "Major Power and Private Thawtz". I'm absolutely in love with the beginning of his story, and can't wait to see what comes next. If you're a fan of comic books, superheroes AND tickling, you won't be disappointed.


And finally, Tuesday of this week will bring a special update to the home page. Yes, Spring has almost sprung and it's way past time to get rid of that Santa image. The home page will be updated with a brand new magazine cover, free for everyone! Be sure to check back Tuesday for it.

I just wanted to make everyone aware of a new blog that is run by some good friends of mine. The link to it is in the sidebar.

They've got their finger on the pulse of the entire gay fetish porn industry, and their postings are divided by sub-category. If you've got a fetish, it's on there. If it isn't on there, there's a place for you to submit your site to get the word out about it.

Obviously, if you visit this blog, you've got an interest in tickling. If you want to see a whole variety of fetish material put together with a cheeky sense of humor, I suggest that you make a frequent stop in your daily porn journey.

Achilles Does Sloth!

Do you remember Buck Nova? Of course you do. Buck was one of Sloth's earliest creations for the site. A hunky, intergalactic traveler that always seems to run afoul of tickling robots.

A member made a very interesting suggestion to me last week: Why didn't I try to draw one of the characters that Sloth created, and vice-versa? I thought it was a great idea, and I immediately thought about drawing Buck. This week's piece shows my version of him, once again at the mercy of some torture machines, this time the "Smilebots".


Next week will be a big update! We'll be posting the first page of Mr. Zikkon's comic, a piece from me and a piece from Sloth in which he's going to the king from my old "Good to be King" drawing.

See you next week!
