This year, I'm looking to add to my portfolio with an anthology graphic novel (underway)  a new sketchbook and a brand new exhibition! I'm also looking to create an animation for my motion book THE BLUE LOTUS ADVENTURES. With your pledge, I'll be able to hire an animator to work on the project and to self-publish my future graphic novel releases and sketchbooks. Plus, create more video shorts for my projects and art classes.


Egyptian Wonder Woman by Des Taylor

Imagine the story of Wonder Woman, Elseworlds style, using the Egyptian gods.
That was on my mind when creating this piece. Big hint to those writers at DC. Would love to read something like that. Now... I'm off to bed.


Italian Music magazine "Suono" speaks to Artist Des Taylor.

 Italian journalist Massimo Bargna contacted me in September for an interview on me ,my style, inspirations, projects and achievements for Italian music magazine "Suono". He tells me it's the longest article he has published for the magazine so it's safe to say they liked the idea.

Forza Italia!

DIRTY MARTINI - Hollywood Private Eye by Des Taylor

Rina Martini (AKA Dirty Martini) is a character I created back in 2012 after a desire to do a story about a trashy but extremely intelligent P.I. investigating a murder cover-up in the backdrop of Hollywood sleaze. I put it on the shelf to concentrate on my projects THE TROUBLE WITH KATIE ROGERS, SCARLETT COUTURE and THE BLUE LOTUS. With the Harvey Weinstein scandal ripping it's way through Hollywood at the moment, it may be an idea to re-look at this character at some point next year, and might change the way she looks a bit.

RIP Hugh Hefner.

RIP HH! A legend
that lived the dream.

Scarlett Couture in Red Alexandre Vauthier gown.

After I saw Bella in this dress...had to do a version on Scarlett. Stunning gown.

The wonderful pin-up model and costume maker Stephanie Castro as Danger Dame. 
A collaboration character we created for the convention circuit.
Let's all agree she looks amazing!
