Bizarre, Dolphins and Pony Play!

I've done a few different illustrations for Bizarre Magazine; most of these are pretty old now so I thought I'd post them up here for posterity!

These three were done for an article about a man who had a "relationship" with a dolphin in the seventies. The dolphin eventually died :(  I tried to do them in a cheesy romance novel style.

These pics of various members of the Bizarre team in fancy dress were done for the editors page.

These next ones were done to illustrate various aspects of pony play for an article.

Drawing for bizarre is always fun, I can't imagine any other magazine that'd have me drawing such a diverse range of subjects! I've you've never read it, give it go.

That dolphin one is hilarious. Especially the crab. Remember the Gene Wilder segment of "Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Sex But Were Afraid To Ask" where he falls in love with a sheep?
