curator’s note Perfect example of why it important to clarify what exactly in naturism. This person was lauded by naturists in the past. Now if the allegations are true it seems he is more of an exhibitionist.

From Idea to Concept: Creating The Secret Life of a Naturist

I have been enjoying creating the cartoon The Secret Life of a Naturist for the Clothes Free Life online magazine for the past three weeks and thought I would give a you a sneak peek at the creating process that goes into each one.

Creating a cartoon old school (without computer graphics) by drawing and inking. First of course, is coming up with a story for the characters. In a cartoon strip it has to have a beginning, middle and end all in the space of seven to nine panels. The idea is not to have a laugh out loud punchline but a situation that may be humorous enough that the reader can connect with.

In today’s installment, I first wrote a few notes on my tablet that briefly outlines the plot. I break it down into panels as they will eventually appear on the strip with what the character’s will be saying or thought balloons or sound effects. This writing concept is similar to theater or movie scripts.


Once I have it completed, I start to put the story to the page by doing a rough sketch of what each panel will be and make any changes to the dialog when I do the inking. As you will see, I added what Debbie was saying from my initial draft with “I couldn’t reach him on his cell”. This change was necessary so as to give the reader the reason why Johnny’s mother would be calling on their land line and not his cell.

I combined the dialog from panel seven to panel eight to give more impact on Johnny’s horror of having Dan speak to his mother while he was naked. Of course, the absurdity of Johnny’s horror and look of puzzlement on Dan’s face made for a great ending.

If there are any changes to be made it must be at this point before any of the inking begins. Once I have fleshed out the drawings a little more I start inking. I made sure to give emphasis on the sounds with the phone ringing and when Johnny arrives you only see SLAM which is for a door shutting.

Now I can start the colouring process which will give more depth to each panel. And there you have the completed cartoon ready to be sent to the magazine.

I hope you enjoyed the creating process as much as I.

Until then, stay creative and naked.

The nudist movement grows strongly in Argentina (via mdz)

The “naturism” is gaining more and more followers in the country, with the creation of new clubs and the expansion of activities in existing ones.

Eighty-five years after the creation of Grupo Panda, the first nudist community in Argentina, passing through the Playa Franca de Moria Casán, the practice of “naturism” in the country continues to expand, slowly, silently and far from prying eyes. spas, yoga and theater classes and even cross-country races.

The Perils of a Man Painting Naked Women in 2018 (via Artsy)

The female nude is one of art history’s oldest subjects. What can a 21st-century artist—especially a male painter—add to the conversation?

Since before humans could write, they’ve been depicting naked women in art. European caves feature drawings of voluptuous, reclining nudes, and the famous Venus of Willendorf dates back to around 28,000–25,000 B.C. Scientists believe that the latter—a reddish limestone statuette discovered in Austria in the early 1900s—represents a fertility figure. Indeed, the earliest depictions of nude women often refer to their procreative properties. From Francisco de Goya to Titian, from famed Japanese woodblock artist Katsushika Hokusai to Pablo Picasso and Willem de Kooning, art history’s most revered men have employed the styles of their time to investigate the unclothed female form. If these artists sometimes degraded women’s bodies in the process, the 20th century also ushered in a new crop of artists eager to critique their predecessors and reclaim female agency. Each subsequent generation has addressed the topic anew, choosing to either rebel against old traditions or return to them with contemporary eyes.
