JUST POINTING OUT

CHALLENGING YOURSELF
MIGHT TAKE YOU WAYS!

 

A little tiny chat with Rickard Bengtsson about an unexpected year long project.

But first Rickard Bengtsson statement…

We wanted to point out that yesterday -Aujust 13th 2017- was a year long unexpected project from erotica illustrator Rickardbengtsson : One character drawing a day. Although it started as a pretty girl drawing regular practice, Rickard found himself in front of a sad reality…Drawing ethics, motivation, or just …society.

As an unexpected projects brings unexpected chats we just happen to have one Tiny little chat about it… Here it goes: 

Rickardbengtsson_RB:

Congratulation! Are you up to a second round?

_

RB:
Cheers! Feel free to share if you think it Belongs in your feed. I have a couple others from this month i havent posted yet so i see no reason to stop now :p

_

J:
Is there another purpose to your project? Like something awareness? Or personal challenge for a certain reason? Or?

_

RB:
It Didn’t start out being focused on trying to bring diversity (weight, ethnicity, gender). I was just drawing, mostly just pretty ladies but as Ive Done more and more it evolved into that part being important as well. There Are lots Of “perfect” Bodies out there in the media and after a while i just got bored Of it and Wanted to do something different. Most Of the works evolve pretty naturally once i sit down to draw though and drawing curvy women Are just a whole lot more fun 

_

J:
So it became a fun statement to pursue 

Did you give a name to your every day drawing project?

_

RB:
Dont really have a name for it, it was just a few weeks ago i realized i had been doing it for almost a year haha

_

J:
And it was noticed. Always enjoying your drawings. You are now an integral part of our erotica decorum.

It wouldn’t be the same without you 😉

What software do you use? Tablet?

_

RB:
Hehe cheers. Love the stuff you post and the fact that it exists, even on a service like instagram Thats pretty lame When it comes to nudity etc

I got an iPad Pro about a little more Than a year ago so all the drawings for this project have been Done on that in Procreate

_

J:
I hear you, although jmamuse itself doesn’t have body part censorship we do get or fingers snapped a few times here and there on IG. Thanks so so much for the positive note though, greatly appreciate it.

Oh good to know, so do you highly recommended the iPad pro to illustrators of all levels?

_

RB:
Yeah, i can imagine hehe. Yeah, definitely. I used to use Photoshop and a Wacom tablet on My computer but being able to actually sit on the couch with just an iPad is so much nicer and has made me want to draw a lot more Than before. Without the iPad i probably wouldnt have Done this project cause it is a lot more flexible

A few Of the drawings Ive Done on Trains or airplanes and stuff too

_

J:
Huge traveller?

_

RB:
Nah wouldnt say that but during the course Of the year theres been some trips here and there 

_

J:
Oops

Didn’t mean to send this heart

RB:
Haha. Too many hearts never hurt nobody

_

J:
Tell you what. I’d like to post our little chat with your year project retrospective announcement. Okay with that? I know the year was the 13th but, 14th will start your new year. Oh is August 14th illustration’s produced already?

_

RB:
Definitely- go ahead! 

 yeah, Ive got something ready for the next one but might wait a day or two to post so this year recap doesn’t get buried and lost in My own posts right away 

___________________

I guess year 2 will have more or less then 363 or 364 character designs from Rickard, however, I wish you tons of fun with it. Perhaps will it bring more revelations, evolution, revolution, more challenges, fun challenges?! Cheers!
