NSFW

NSFW means “not safe for work”. It is often used as a way to label images of naked people. I agree that nudes are not safe work. In fact, looking at anything that isn’t related to work while at work is not safe to be doing when your boss walks in. Even Hello Kitty is not safe for work. I do not agree with the fact that more art shows, galleries, and websites are refusing to exhibit depictions of nudes. The contemporary art world is becoming more conservative than the Catholic church. They’ve had public displays of nudes for hundreds of years.

The following images are NSFW, but they are safe for home, teenagers, and any toddlers you may have looking over your shoulder. You know why? Because they are art. Stop being such a fuddy duddy.

Sketchy Dames

I try to keep my sketchbook exclusively to drawings from life, but sometimes pretty women just slip out.

Seaside Carousel

There is a beautiful carousel in the mall with nothing but sea creatures as “horses”. If you would really like mall security to shadow you for hours, start your visit off by drawing it.
