Censorship

Sat Sep 1, 2007, 12:49 AM
See???

Well, I posted a photo of Emily steeneeweenee.deviantart.com/a… called "Dirty Knees".  She's fully nude in this image and I chose to place a small star over her vagina.  I got complaints from people saying that it detracted from the photo, etc., so I removed the star.  I did so after saying that there's just no way to please everyone.  

So, today I looked in my notes and found out that one of my other pictures was banned.  It was this image www.myfetishdiary.com/blog/ima… of Stoya.  She's not even naked and each of her hands is cleverly hiding potential nudity. I rest my case.  You just can't win for losing.  I'm assuming that someone with the power to ban thought she was ploughing her fingers into her ass, but that wasn't the case at all.  One person's erotica is another person's porn.

Maybe now people won't complain about artists' self-censorship.

New book covers

I've been working with the fine folks at Virgin Books' Nexus imprint for several years now.  They've been really great to me, especially the head honcho over there.  I got to meet him when I was in London last year and we really hit it off.  What a bonus!

Anyways...  You can see all of the book covers they've commissioned from me, and buy the books (which are under $10 each) in my little book shop.

I got two new covers in the mail today and I'm stoked!!  They do such a nice job over at Virgin.  And the best part is seeing my photos on the shelves in bookstores and airports around the world.  =)

So, I had a forum.  It got hacked.  I fixed it.  It got hacked again.  I gave up.  I changed to a blog.  It's going great!  I post new photos.  I get traffic.  The lurkers make me sad.  Come by and post!

Blog...

Maybe Darenzia's the only one who'll get that reference to "The Critic", but it's an apt title.
I finally redesigned my portfolio site www.christinekessler.com and I've added a shop there as well.  So, even though my book's not yet available in the States, you can actually order a signed copy directly from me!
