The Erotic Mind of René Capone — Podcast #132 — 06/22/09

Hey sex fans,

Judging from the comments pouring in from all over, I guess ya’ll are really enjoying these rene_facespecial pride month podcasts, huh?  The last two weeks I featured the brilliant work of Mike. from MikeMen.  Today and next week we have as our guest a gay visual artist of a completely different stripe.  As you know, these podcasts are part of The Erotic Mind
series.  We converse with noted erotic artists from all over the world in an effort to try to uncover something of the creative process involved in this specialized art form.

Today I have the honor of introducing you to a friend, someone I’ve known for several years.  He is charming, funny and oh so talented.  He is René Capone.

René is both an artist and a storyteller.  In fact, I think he’s best described as an artist-storyteller.  He imbues his creations, both lifelike and fantasy, with something of his own nature and life experience.  He says it’s the job as an artist to explore the fundamental emotions of life; love, hate, jealousy, fear, anger and passion.  And he does his job with a childlike simplicity, which is absolutely remarkable.

René’s work is a refreshing departure from the more explicit work of some of the other artists I’ve featured in this series.  But as we’ll find out from René himself, eroticism has many dimensions.  If art is truthful, he says, it will also be erotic.

René and I discuss:

  • The therapeutic nature of his art.
  • His graphic novel, Hedgehog Boy.
  • How he got his start as an artist, as an erotic artist.
  • The distinction, if any, between an artist and an illustrator.
  • The distinction, if any, between erotica and pornography.

Discover René and his memorable artwork on his site HERE.

The Erotic Mind of Mike — Podcast #128 — 06/08/09

Hey sex fans,

How many of you know that June is Gay Pride month?  Well it is!  And if you don’t believe mikeportrait72me, ask President Obama.  He made the official declaration June 1st.
He is the first president in our glorious history to do so.  So hurray for him!  And an even bigger hurray for all us Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender people on this 40th anniversary of the birth of the modern gay rights movement.

To celebrate pride month, I will feature the brilliant work and thoughtful reflection of two renowned gay visual artists. These podcasts are part of The Erotic Mind
series, where we converse with noted erotic artists in an effort to try to uncover something of the creative process involved in this specialized art form.

Today I have the distinct pleasure of introducing you to the first of my special Pride guests.  He is the spectacular artist, who goes by the name Mike.  Perhaps you’ve already seen some of his distinctive work; it’s hard to miss, don’t cha know.  His images are all over the internet as well as in magazines and in books.

Mike and I discuss:

  • How he got his start as an artist; as an erotic artist.
  • Where he finds his models.
  • What erotic art means to him.
  • The difference, if any, between an artist and an illustrator.
  • What makes some of his work erotic and other stuff pornographic.

Be sure to check out Mike, his delicious artwork, and his insightful blog HERE.
