I caught up with artist Edgar Murillo to admire the men that have been inspiring his work.
When did you discover and begin to explore your passion for art and illustration?
I discovered it from birth. I was born deaf and it was difficult for me to communicate with my family, so I used papers and pencils to draw to be able to communicate something. I draw every day, and I’m very happy.
How would you describe your style of illustration?
Honestly, I don’t know what my style is – I draw different types of drawings and I keep making more drawings with new styles. The important thing is that people like it a lot.
Who are some of your heroes or artistic inspirations?
SilverJow, Kimjunggius, and Nesskain – you must follow him!
Are the men you draw hyper-masculine?
Yes – I’m a pogonophile – I love furry!
The inspiration comes from my imagination, friends, movies, and social networks. The majority of men that I draw are from Barcelona, others from America.
Do you accept commissions?
Not yet. I’m focused on making movies, and several other projects.
What do you expect people to feel when they look at your work?
Hypnotised! Some people have told me that they find my drawings arousing.

The erotic art of Felix d’Eon
Stunning artwork that fuels our fantasies.
I caught up with Felix d’Eon to talk art, inspiration, and erotica.
When did you discover and start to explore your passion for art and illustration?
I have no idea! I decided to be an artist as a child – there was never a time when I didn’t want to be an artist, so it’s hard to remember how it started.
However, I didn’t decide to be a fine artist or illustrator until High School – before that I wanted to be a bird scientist and travel the world painting birds like John James Audubon. But, somewhere around the age of 13 or so, I discovered the old masters, and decided I wanted to paint like Ingres, or Rubens – which is a goal that I’m still working towards!
Who are some of your art heroes or inspirations?
There are so many! I think, if I will call them a hero, they would be artists who were genuinely good people, as well as being amazing artists.
For example, Bonnard, the post-impressionist, who tenderly cared for his ailing wife who had a skin condition, and for this reason has many paintings of her in the bathtub – the only place she was not in pain – beautifully and lovingly painted. Of course, he was a great painter, whose use of colour is unparalleled.
I can love Bonnard without qualifiers, unlike, say, Gauguin or Picasso – both of whom were amazing artists but rather unpleasant as people.
What’s the process that you generally follow?
I usually have the idea, and invite the model to the studio for a photo-shoot. I print out the photo and use it as the base. The model is often nude, so I invent the clothing and such using historical sources. I make a drawing in pencil, redraw it in ink, and colour it in marker.
How can people get their hands on your work?
What do you hope that people feel when looking at your art?
I hope they will feel beautiful, loved, seen, and represented. I hope they will feel that love is universal, and that beauty encompasses a wide variety of bodies and ethnicities.
What are some of your goals and aspirations for the months ahead?
To make more beautiful paintings!
