Nadya and Roxane by Ario Anindito

Nadya and Roxane

We've no idea what the back story is behind this illustration but it is intriguing to say the least.   An older woman has a younger redhead leaning against her hip.  Both are naked and both look very comfortable with it.   Is this a lazy morning after a night of sapphic passion?   It certainly gives off that impression!  There are other interesting elements in the picture like the Hellboy doll and the sinister looking soft toy panda. We are most impressed by the way Mr Anindito has rendered the girl's busts.  Splendid work!

Nadya, at least, is a character from Anindito's comic book and here we see her again in a page from that.  I gather that it is a work in progress rather than a published item.  You can see more of his interesting work here.

Here is another fetching illustration by the same artist who is, unusually for this genre, an Indonesian who originally trained as an architect.  One of his early influences was Don Lawrence's wonderful The Trigan Empire which is, frankly, the only comic story Triple P was ever interested in when he was small.  Lawrence, of course, also illustrated Mayfair's seventies strip Carrie, which we may do something on shortly.
