Most professional illustrators choose the path of relative security, and court large publishers to ply their trade. A few brave souls, however, choose a more adventurous journey into the chaotic world of commissioned art. Robert Quill is one of those few courageous, mercenary-of-mercenaries who travels about, seeking those in need of his artistic vision. Upon closer inspection of his body of work, many of those he finds have active imaginations and hearty libidos.
Many of Mr. Quill’s works are pleasant enough: portraits of roleplaying characters and other gallant heroes of the past and future. A select few subjects, however, explore the very limits of human — and inhuman sexuality. Some of these deliciously twisted works are of his own creation, but he also obviously delights in channeling the hidden fetishes and secret dreams of his diverse clientele.
Enjoy the visions of beatific bondage and self-stimulated seductresses interspersed amongst his more prim and proper illustrations, but you would be well advised to consider the consequences of commissioning a portrait from Robert… unless you’re prepared to learn a little more about your own deepest desires.
