One of the most interesting intersections of fantasy and the mundane is the world of high fashion. Otto Schmidt happily illustrates this convivial collision in a sensual signature style.
With a reckless abandon he’s crafted an eclectic collection of supermodels bound by no genre or setting. Long-haired fairy tales damsels languish beside shapely science fiction cyborgs while pouty perky mermaids rest with buxom video game gals and scaly anthropomorphic dragon women. Even two highschoolers from Lawndale wear Mr. Schmidt’s sleek retro spark and modern sensibilities quite well.
While these lovely ladies could never be found on a New York catwalk, Otto has certainly shown that this is entirely to the detriment of the fashion world.
