Monsters are nearly always portrayed as confident, passionate creatures who are driven by powerful urges. Is it any wonder that some women find such primal beasts alluring? Surely not if your name is Ben Newman. He seems called to explore this novel dynamic of maiden and monster in his own indomitable fashion.
Be it tentacled sea creatures taking liberties with a ladies panties, or spectral apparitions gently molesting an eager — if not strangely familiar explorer, Mr. Newman’s gallery is replete with attractive young, underdressed women inexplicably aroused and ogling occult monstrosities and ancient tantric terrors.
In addition to these unsettling matings of monster and maiden, Ben does also depict confident, curvaceous ladies with less eerie proclivities, and no less compellingly. His creations seem well equipped and eager to poses whatever they desire.
