|I do love women tied up with scarves, but I also love to see women wearing scarves for fashion, particularly fashion headscarves.|
How long have you been on DeviantArt? 4 Years according to what it says on my banner...
What does your username mean? It is the name of my company, named by my wife Bev (RIP). The name could represent a fashion company, but it is a company that focuses on bondage with silk scarves. We also do pantyhose and rope bondage.
Describe yourself in three words. Passionate, Emotional, and Dedicated
Are you left or right handed? Right...Bev was left handed and the better of the two of us.
What was your first deviation? One of our models wearing a headscarf. Headscarves are shunned today by Western women, but I grew up during a period where women of all ages wore them, not because they had to (a common myth), but because they were considered fashionable and practical. Fashion headscarves are very feminine. I wish they would come back, but I know it is unlikely. I'm sick of seeing women wearing baseball hats.
What is your favourite type of art to create? A few years ago, I would have said photographing/videotaping bound and gagged women (models) in stories of adventure, usually involving criminal intrigue. Usually, it was woman vs. woman. Did that for a very long time and I enjoyed it immensely. Living out fetish fantasies for myself and for others (via sales) has been very rewarding. As a photographer, I still like to photograph women, in general. I am not talking about nudes or bondage, although that is still very nice to do. Just women...they are the most interesting subjects in the world to photograph, at least for me. My passion now is writing stories that include the fetishes I am interested in. However, I am not (usually) the point A directly to point B type of writer, like most fetish writers. I like my stories to be unpredictable, have unusual characters. I tell people that I usually don't know how a story will end when I begin it and that is true. The story develops before me, just like real life.
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? Drawing...to be able to illustrate something without a live (and often expensive) model. I like many artists with different drawing styles, but I prefer a realistic style. I would like to be able to draw what I can't photograph.
What was your first favourite? I have no idea...I started to put them in sub-folders so the order got lost. But, there was a tied up woman involved, I'm sure...
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? bondage drawings
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist? This is a loaded question, which I refuse to answer because I have many DA friends and I like all their work. To pick one over another might offend someone.
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? While most of my writing has been done by myself. I agreed to coauthor a story with . The experience has been one of the most beneficial that I have had on DA and elsewhere. Sarah has different fetishes and points of view and yet we managed to merge those and mine into an excellent tale with intrigue and mystery that had plenty of sex and fetish aspects. We are now working on a second story and collaborating in other ways.
What are your preferred tools to create art? A camera, lighting and a sexy model for photography. A computer for writing.
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? There isn't a single place.
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory? This is going to sound strange and it is not a single memory. My wife was really sick with cancer for the better part 15 months, including spending 2.5 months in the hospital and then unfortunately, she passed away. While dealing with her death has been extremely hard, the medical fight, with its ups and downs, created incredible stress. If you have never experienced it, and I hope you don't, it controls your life, your mood and your outlook on life. Many people who are caretakers get sick themselves. I did have support of family and friends, but getting on DA most days helped me cope with the stress. And whatever you think of my interest in art, having DA as a diversion helped me get through that dark period in my life.
My profile picture is not of me...it is what I do. I am the producer of Knotty Silk Scarf Productions (knottysilkscarf.com and silencedladies.com).
