On April 15, 2009, I wrote up my first deMullotto post:
deMullotto is the brush name (?) for a Michigan-based artist who has created some of the most extraordinary B/D-S/M art I have ever seen.
My introduction to him was the publication 'Mark of the Master'.
An accomplished, commercial graphic artist in the entertainment business, he chose the name deMullotto in order to separate his B/D-S/M work from his bread and butter work; in a close-minded business, this decision enabled him to labor comfortably in both worlds.
Shortly, 'Mark of the Master' will be re-published by Creation Books.
The Creation Books printing of 'Mark of the Master' is the first volume in their Satanic Archives series.
After my initial post, I was contacted by a generous woman named Bridgette, a lifetime submissive.
Bridgette is the model in this image
Bridgette is a trusted friend of and has worked with Mr. deMullotto, and was kind enough to inform me that he's been very sick. Due to his illness, he is now unable to use his hands to create the magnificent art he once did.
After a couple of email exchanges, Bridgette sent me jpegs of the pieces now appearing in today's blog.
Unlike deMullotto's earlier work, these are Photoshopped creations; deMullotto was one of the first artists to use Photoshop for work of this nature. Now much imitated, he pioneered a fresh and provocative form of computer graphics, and was at the forefront of a game-changing movement.
I hope you enjoy them.
They represent some of the final creations of a truly great artist whose talents are not as widely known as they should be.
I wish the ailing Mr. deMullotto well.
