Horror Sleaze Trash: First off, we’d like to thank you for taking time out of your day to talk to Horror Sleaze Trash. I happened across you on IG and I was an instant fan of your art!
Nirvana: Hello! Thank you for your interest in what I do.

tumblr_p5p0b5LVOA1vmxt9lo1_1280

HST: Have you always been interested in art?
N: I have always been interested in art. I have been a painter for about 6 years and started making collages about 4 years ago. Art is the most important part of my life.

HST: What got you started in/interested in art? Why did you choose to start creating collages?
N: I started doing what I do because art history is my favorite subject, and mixing it with modern culture and imagery is very fun for me. I keep on doing it because It’s enjoyable and unique, and it makes me happy that so many people support it and enjoy it.

HST: When did you first begin making collages of the renaissance/baroque paintings with modern art and photography?
N: I started July 2016. I had seen some similar stuff on tumblr, but I didn’t find them easily so I decided I would start making some of my own. I’m so glad I did.

HST: Well, you have almost 135,000 followers on Instagram, so it seems like a good move! You’ve had such an incredible response. What most inspires you?
N: Inspiration is so hard to define! Anything can be inspiring, really.

HST: That’s a very good point, especially if it’s something you are looking for in your life. How do you feel your art has changed and developed over the years?
N: I think it has largely stayed the same. I have always been interested in beauty and different concepts and mediums coming together. I think I have gotten a lot better at mixing the images.

HST: What other kinds of art or hobbies do you indulge in? What else do you like to do in your free time?
N: I am an artist! I paint most of the day, but I also love to read.

HST: What other artists do you look up to and admire?
N: I love Matisse, Monet, Derain, Bougeureau, and Degas. Some of the contemporary artists that I love are Matthew Gaulke and Lucas David.

HST: Is there a piece of your work that you are most proud of?
N: I’m proud of all of them, I like them all equally.

HST: That’s good. I mean, a lot goes into creating them. Do you have a favorite movie or book?
N: Oh, that’s so hard to choose! I love way too many! Some movies that I will probably always love is Mystic Pizza, Closer, and Pulp Fiction. One book that I adore is The Kite Runner.

HST: Are there any fictional characters that you personally relate to?
N: I relate the most to Phoebe Buffay from Friends.

HST: That’s awesome. My sisters are obsessed with that show. Thank you so much for taking some time to talk to us! It’s been a pleasure and we can’t wait to see more of your art in the future! Where can people find and connect with you online?

N: Thank you for reaching out! I don’t have a website, but I can be found on Instagram as @radioshead.

Daniel Ortiz is a self taught artist from Albuquerque, New Mexico…a beautiful place where saints jack off in the sky and history hangs from the walls like quiet screams.

He lives to make art, but it’s not what he does for a living. He’s a slave to the eight hour day, like most of us are…but he’s hoping for a way out, in more ways than one.

Seven Questions with Suzy

IMG_1571
Well, we’re a little late for Shoutout Saturday but I guess that’s what happens when you start day drinking and forget about your phone!

HST took some time to catch up with @suzyinacent for a mini interview about her bad photoshop art, why she loves it, and where she’s taking it in the future. Check out the comments below to read our seven questions with Suzy and head over to her page on Instagram and show some love.

1. What inspired you to start doing bad photoshop?:
I think I began editing photos back during the early 2000s to put on my Myspace. I remember combing through banner after banner and thinking they all were lame, so I made my own.
Then computers got smaller and smaller and photo editing software was increasingly accessible, now I spend under a few hours on my phone, dinking about if I have a fun idea, or if I cant sleep.
The surrealism thing is new though.

2. What’s your favorite thing about bad photoshop?:
That my art doesn’t necessarily NEED to be “good”. I make content I enjoy, or I experiment in the moment. I sometimes have a loose idea of what I’m going to end up with, but the end result is never really where I wan to take my art, it just ends up there.

3. What originally inspired you to paint pennies?:
I belong to a very wholesome group where we paint rocks to brighten someone’s day. The more I painted the more I wanted to challenge myself, and it was fun to try to paint as small as I could.
Unfortunately, penny-painting is paused for the future – my fine motor skills have been compromised due to medication side effects.

4. Is there any other kind of art you are interested in?:
I love editing videos. I was never into scrapbooking, but that’s what’s happening when I make videos; I edit video because that memory is important to me, or there is a feeling I’m trying to convey.
Sometimes I just wanna fling lettuce at my dog and film it in slow-motion.

5. Three favorite words: 
Is this a quiz? HORROR, SLEAZE, TRASH, duh.

6. Throwback to the days when I met you in a comic book shop – is there any comic/graphic novel series you think everyone should read?: 
For everyone? Bone. It’s super cute and light reading and set in a fantasy world.
Maybe not for EVERYONE, but Saga. I love Saga. It has amazing imagery, aliens that I adore, relevant themes, trauma, violence, sex, interstellar war.

7. What are you goals with bad photoshop and @suzyinacent for the next year, if any?:
I just need an outlet for all the crazy I’ve got in my brain. I’d like to make fan=art of my friends, but I’m afraid that’s too Tina Belcher.
Is this where I hashtag #SendNudes?

Varinia Rodriguez

“Kissing Toads”

Hop came the toad
He told me
“You are gorgeous.”

He sang me punk rock lullabies
“Baby, baby, baby
Won’t you be my girl?”

So, I kissed the toad.

He became a punk rock boy.

I stayed a punk rock girl
but punk rock boy wanted more.

so I learned to give up my thighs
before I was ready.
When my gift was too far in between
I was replaced by faster girls
in back seats.

So, I never believed that fairytales were meant for me.

Varinia A. Rodriguez is a Frida Kahlo painting: surreal, divine and unexpected. She is an amalgamation of ten thousand jellyfish all swimming together, forming something that almost resembles a form in its unity, but always changing. Reading Rodriguez’s poetry I’ve never felt like I’m in the same place twice. Her poems feel like déjà vu, familiar but somehow brand new. Her poems feel like ten strangers shoved together inside of a hostel and forced to reconcile their songs of the open road. Her poems feel like getting home from a trip and finding sand in the back pocket of your favorite pair of jeans. Her poems feel like photographs, urgent to grab the small intimacies of a big world. Varinia speaks of trauma, and heartache, and missed connections. She speaks of magic and wanderlust and love. Some of her poems wash over you like a cool wave on a hot day. Some burn on the way down like a shot of rum on an empty stomach. All of her poetry is worth cherishing, and the kind of thing that will catch you in your own holy moments, and having you questioning just where you keep the passion in your life, and how do you manifest your own dreams?” ~Brice Maiurro

i’m an artist

yesterday i
watched through
your window as
you made breakfast
i wanted you to
feel me
i wondered if you
could feel my
eyes like hands
running up your
sides touching
your thighs
like fingers
touching your lips
running through
your hair grabbing
your hips
pressing against
your ass
i wondered if
you knew that
i was watching or
if you knew
what I was thinking
baby,
i’m an artist
and the view
from the fence
is spectacular.

‘Sad Discoveries’ by India LaPlace

unnamed
I’m excited to announce that I had my first chapbook published by Analog Submission Press! I’ve been writing since I was a little girl and it’s always been a creative outlet that has kept me sane throughout my tumultuous childhood – it has helped me grow through every rough patch life has thrown at me and has been therapy when I had none. Being involved with Horror Sleaze Trash has grown my confidence in my writing immensely and I owe so much to the influence of HST and our Editor-in-Chief, Arthur Graham. Not only has it helped to build my confidence in my writing, but it has encouraged me to be more honest and vulnerable – to worry more about being open about my experience and thoughts, instead of worrying about hurting feelings or being “politically correct”. I also had the opportunity to work with John D. Robinson in putting this little collection together. He helped me make the final selection of poems, format everything, worked with me on a title (which is something I’m so bad at – also, shout out to Angels and Airwaves, which, in the end, inspired the title with their song ‘Anomaly’), put the cover together for me, and got in contact with Marc Bruseke at ASP about publishing my poetry. John is an incredibly talented writer who I have immense respect for and whose work I love very much so to be able to work with him was such an honor for me.

If you’re interested in purchasing a copy of this collection, you can find it here. There is a limited run of 25, so if you miss out, send me a message and maybe I can get you a copy for cheaper or free in exchange for a review!

India LaPlace is a poet from the USA and is co-editor of the sensational Horror Sleaze Trash: This is her debut collection: Hold on tight.

Said John D. Robinson on ‘Sad Discoveries’: “It looks fantastic! The usual great job from Marc. Well done! And I think you should feel proud of this book – the best debut collection I have read in a long time. The poems are what we are made of: flesh, blood, bones, emotions. Raw and honest. These works don’t shy away where many would. I can’t wait to get a copy and thank you for your words. It was a pleasure to play a part. Keep writing and roll a fat one. I’ll raise many a glass tonight for Sad Discoveries!”

I was born in April 1985 in Roma, Italy. I always had a great passion for comics and illustrations and since I was a child, I tried to follow the style of my favorite artists.

After I completed my studies in Electronic & Telecommunication in 2006, I started to draw my first digital pin ups. After a few months, I got my first collaboration with clients and agencies and I had the opportunity to develop my skills as an illustrator.

After a few years and a constant sense of dissatisfaction, I decided to quit the world of digital art and return to my first love… THE PENCILS. A few years later, after tons of sketches and failures, I can say I mastered this technique.

I am working on my first art book, here you can find a selection of my best work, from pencil illustration sketches and my colored pin ups, where I blend my traditional and digital skills.

Pachu M. Torres

Untitled
Pachu M. Torres is an artist based in Spain, addicted to black coffee and specializing in erotic art. His work focuses on the synesthesia of pleasure and colors, BDSM and female passion. You can find his art on the social media and many magazines like ‘PLAYBOY’.

Horror Sleaze Trash: First off, I’d like to thank you for taking time out of your schedule to talk to Horror Sleaze Trash. I’ve been following you on tumblr for a while and I’m such a fan of your art!
Pachu M. Torres: Thank you! I’m glad you like my art that way, and even more to have this conversation with you.
bar_pachu_torres_preview
HST: When did you first begin creating such sexy images?
Pachu: I became interested in drawing erotic illustrations after I had my first sexual experiences at 14-years-old (1999, more or less). I remember that my classmates and friends liked my illustrations and they bought many of them from me or asked for other things hahaha.
HST: That’s a unique way to make money at 14! How do you feel your art has changed and developed over the years?
Pachu: Many factors have caused my art to change over the years, and I’m aware of it: first of all, I focused my art on the eroticism. This was due to the success of this designs online 6 years ago. I shared them in a time when I was working in a national Spanish Newspaper (ABC), where I was doing other kind of illustrations (portraits, superheroes, cartoons, etc.), but as soon as I shared an erotic sketch on Instagram, it went viral (and after the success, Instagram disabled that account, of course). So I started sharing my erotic designs and being more and more open with my own tastes and sexual interests. At this point, they can be considered like a daily diary hahaha. But one of the constants in my art it’s that I don’t like to be explicit, but rather, suggestive; there’s the real power of my illustrations. So, over this 6 years I have a greater assertiveness on the strokes with the brush (due to a greater experience), I risk more with digital colors and their combinations and the compositions are more elaborated.
lady_stardust_pachu_torres_preview
HST: I would definitely call your art erotic and suggestive! Are there other artists that you look up to and admire?
Pachu: I admire many artists. Milo Manara, Serpier, Bastian Vives, Tomer Hanuka, Horacio Altuna, Jordi Bernet… all of them are awesome comic-book creators; Olly Moss, Gigi Rose Gray, or David Sossella are stunning illustrators as well.
HST: Do you have any other kinds of art or hobbies that you like to indulge in?
Pachu: I like to write. In fact, my studies were specialized in Spanish Language and Literature. I wrote many poems and little histories that, if someday I have time, I’ll illustrate to make a book with them. Outside of my creativity, I’m an intense movie addict; my favorite genres are horror, mystery, and road movies, but if it’s history and it’s good, I’ll like it. Also books, video games, museums…
HST: Okay, here’s a personal question. Do you indulge in any.. activities like the ones we see in your art? Are you into anything kinky?
Pachu: Yes! “The dirtier, the better,” as they say. As I told you, my illustrations can be considered like a daily diary with all the kinky games you see in there. It’s all about giving and receiving pleasure, eliminating limits and taboos, and constantly experimenting.
HST: That’s hot. I agree that it’s important for people to explore and to give and receive pleasure. It’s funny how sex has become so taboo in today’s culture when it’s such a natural part of life.
Pachu: I agree!
THRENODY_PACHU_TORRES_preview
HST: Do you have any other projects that you’re working on right now?
Pachu: I am continuing with my regular works online, the commissions, collaborations with magazines, etc. But this year (2018), I’m going to try to publish a book and also explore the possibility of a clothing line.
HST: Ooo, that’s very cool. You’ll have to keep us posted!
Pachu: I definitely will.
HST: What is your favorite movie or book?
Pachu: The choice for my favorite movie is between ‘Paris-Texas’ (Wim Wenders) and ‘Mulholland Drive’ (David Lynch). Two masterpieces! And my favorite book, ‘Lila Says’ (Chimo).
HST: What about your favorite superhero, since everyone is so superhero obsessed these days?
Pachu: Batman – the only one able to kick the ass of every other superhero and villain! Also, the best superhero comic-books are about his character – ‘Year One’, ‘Dark Knight Returns’, ‘Arkham Asylum’. The best superhero movies are also his.
wonder_woman_shibari_pachu_torres_preview
HST: Well, thank you so much for talking to us! It’s been a pleasure getting to know you better – the man behind the smutty images, haha. We can’t wait to see more of your art in the future! Talk about hot! Where can we find you and connect with you online? Social media? Website?
Pachu: Thank you for all! You’ll find me on Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram, and, of course, my website
