ahh the internet.

Wow. I thought they were photographs, but it's clear that these are large scale scrotal drawings. Not uninteresting work, but I can't imagine owning such an image. Where would it hang?

I swear I know those ballbags.
It's a good likeness of the smaller, shyer bag, but the bigger, more confident bag could really belong to anybody.
Now excuse me while I go claw my eyes out.

Haven't you ever put a picture frame up on the wall? "A little to the left. No, a little to the right."

aladfar: "Where would it hang?"

Any place that has plenty of air where it can swing freely should be fine.

Christ, what an asshole balls.

Also, somewhere an art student is preparing an MFA show of impressionist anuses.

Scrotums (scroti?) and their inhabitants are very important things, but this proves that they are really unpleasant to look at.

haha this is the answer to complaints about this post.

eww. As someone who likes (nekkid) men, lemme say that close-ups of scrotums (scroti) do not counterbalance topless ladies in previous posts.

musty!

I was hoping for a bit of Mick Hucknall, but it was not to be.

Whatever she's using to draw those scrots halfway through the photo set (the thing that looks like a drill) kinda makes me cringe a little. In the visceral sense.

I think that's a paint gun.

Reminds me of some Georgia O'Keefes I've seen.

I'm really curious about the depiction of the pubic hair: seems that all of these scrotumsiiots are of the fair persuasion. Is this artistic license to help distinguish the texture of the pubic hair, or does it speak to the pigmentation cohort of the pictured scrotumnalnessess?

Also: Now I have a fear of paint guns.

Naw ... not a "paint gun". She's doing abrasive work with an electric eraser.

To quote (or rather, translate) Walter Moers^, a German comic book artist: "The fascination of mankind with sexual organs is as unwavering as it is inexplicable, and no other body part is subject to anywhere near the same level of scrutiny. An elbow, for instance, might be of flawless beauty - yet it will never cause as much uproar as a penis or a vagina, notwithstanding the fact that the latter look, objectively speaking, like radioactive vegetables from outer space."

Well, we did it. The human race has finally run out of things to draw.

Anyone besides me expecting Joe Camel to put in an appearence?

What Mister Cheese said: the paing gun or eraser (what ever it was) was not something good to see.

Otherwise, I'll admit, I like the art. I have a glandular bias about such things.

(and Thankyou Dr. Freud, for that spelling error. Of course I really meant 'paint gun'. Honest!)

You'd prefer cubist, maybe?

as for the nutsack daguerrotypes, well, to each their own, I guess, although they sure don't look nice up close.

They are so aesthetically unappealing that turkey giblets are things of beauty in comparison.

Someday, these will be valuable. Each painting is gland made.

What jonmc and leftcoastbob said.

Who wants to look at a scrotum, anyway? I mean, who would buy this stuff?

Here's the thing, as a woman I have spent a fair number of hours with testicles dangling in my face and since they play such a large role in my sexual gratification, I have come to find them....what is the word...not "attractive" but erotic or at least a sensual trigger. In the large, blown-up versions they have a certain majesty, something like whales or giant sea clams. I wouldn't be adverse to having one of these drawings in my bedroom.

I advise keeping the picture small, otherwise you'll give your man a complex, and possibly very vivid nightmares. ;>

My god, almost all of these are so very beautiful. Absolutely lovely. thank you Artist and thank you Blazecock.

Gonad, gonad, on the wall
Who's been drawn as the hairiest ball?
posted by ORthey at 9:59 AM on February 19, 2007


I wonder if the artist considers these still lifes, or portraits?

if she could just master the taint
posted by Jikido at 12:54 PM on February 19, 2007


the taint requires just the right tint. Tint, not paint, otherwise a taint it ain't. But, I'm no saint, so I've got no complaint.

There seems to be a vas deferens as to whether these drawings qualify as art or not.
