A book to buy and another one to avoid!

It's shameless self-promotion time again (when isn't it?)! You may remember a while ago I posted the Djinn as a sample of two pieces of art I submitted to an upcoming anthology by the good people (A special nod to Chris Gatcum) of Ilex Press?
Well, Erotic Fantasy Art is now available! It's doesn't just feature yours truly, it's got loads of excellent talent, including Billy Nunez, Martin Abel, Cool Surface's good friend Steph Laberis, the sorely missed Glen Angus and wonderful pieces from the authors Aly Fell and Jonny Duddle! This must be a record for the most links in a post ever...

Synopsis (from Amazon)

"Erotic Fantasy Art" is a unique showcase of today's very best erotic art. Drawing on a wide variety of work by traditional and digital painters and illustrators from all over the world, it comprises a sourcebook of ideas and inspiration guaranteed to stimulate the imagination of all artists who strive to give their artwork an erotic edge. In this book you will find superlative examples of a wide variety of erotic styles and genres. The authors are on hand to guide you through the selection, revealing the background behind the images, sharing anecdotes drawn from interviews with the artists, and sharing
practical tips and tricks on how the works have been created.

And now, from something you should definitely buy to something you should stay well away from! We were informed by
illustrator Darren Di Lieto, who runs the Little Chimp Society illustration site, that the work of loads of illustrators, and his interviews with them for the LCS, have been plagiarized in a 350-page book being sold online for $100!

None of the people whose work is represented have received anything from this book. You can read more about it at Darren's Blog where he has scans of everyone that has had work stolen. Please help spread the word and

Thanks everyone,
