It's been five years since some of you guys first took a trip with me into the Kingdom of Sexual Fantasies, a world inspired by folklore, fairy tales, and epic fantasy that I've spent the last few years trying to fill with good humor, romance, drama, lively characters, and all kinds of sex! Maybe some you never even thought of! There are four volumes with a total of thirty scenes so far, and a cast of about sixty characters and counting. Now there's a fifth volume on the way, a back story for the series that introduces several new characters, and tells the story of how my most popular characters got to where they are in volumes 1-4.
That's why I decided to recreate volume 1, it's the start of the whole collection of stories of recurring characters, that the fifth volume will be prequel to. I originally created it in the late summer of 2007, when I was very new to this style of artwork, and completely new to selling my work online. My art grew by leaps and bounds and in a year I released an "Anniversary Edition" of volume 1 that I thought might stand the test of time... but... it really didn't. By the time I created my new website to sell all my products directly (at about half price compared to my distributor in Japan), I didn't even put up volume 1 for sale. Compared to my more recent artwork, the original became a source of shame, better to be hidden away and left forgotten.
But, the premise of each scene was solid, and some of the artwork, while really poorly made and rendered, had a good design foundation. I was trying to tell stories so quickly then, that I managed to create some really bold and iconic imagery that I've only rarely topped since then. The technical quality of my art has increased exponentially, but the original is still the foundation on which it has all gotten laid.
It's time to bring it out of the darkness, and turn it into a source of pride. It's time to make it the flagship of the series, the real, original "Number One".
So, that's what I've been doing. And what I've managed to turn that old artwork into, often with just a few small turns of an experienced hand, is something so beautiful, something I've never been happier or more proud to show off. It's still raunchy, funny, tongue-in-cheek, and cock-in-mouth, but now... it's just plain beautiful. And on my site (which is NSFW and 18+ only) you can pre-order it for a discount, or buy it when it comes out. When? Not soon enough, because I can't wait to show you!
