Georgie Tier (1963-still not dead yet) is one of my favourite femdom artists. Her pictures show gloriously stylised views of women in full control of their own sexual pleasure, and totally capable of winning the submission of the man / men of their choice. Even her single-figure work is suggestive of dominance.
In this picture it’s…the look on her face. Hey, it’s a drawing and I want to serve her, far more so than any surly photograph of a domme with a cheesy leer on her face.
Anyway, I find myself wishing that artists like this would do narrative work – not necessarily a full comic book, but something with numerous panels featuring the same characters and arranged in order, possibly with some dialogue or descriptive text. Georgie actually has a degree in the comic-book style, and her work always suggests a story, but to my knowledge all her pictures are stand-alone works, or come in small series featuring three pictures of the same figure but with no direct narrative structure.
(I have not actually been to an exhibition so I could be wrong here).
Male comic book femdom art (like Eric Stanton) is OK for the narrative side of things, but I far prefer Tier’s work to look at. Maybe it’s just that I would rather see a woman’s stylised perception of her own (possibly real) sexual dominance than a man’s imaginings of a dominant woman. Namio somehow avoids this distinction for me, but for the most part, I prefer femdom art drawn by women than by men.
Only problem is, there is very little of it around, and not much with a narrative focus. Is it a male desire, to see the actions suggested in a single picture played out as a story over a range of scenes? Or is it just that work like this is actually hard to produce and each picture is lovingly designed, making the creation of a narrative sequence much more difficult than when an easy, cartoon style is employed.
In addition to her (very fine) pictures of gorgeous women whipping and pissing on men, there’s also some more tender scenes showing woman receiving domestic or erotic service which they are obviously enjoying immensely. This, in particuar, is one is one of my favourite pieces of femdom art.
My mind turns immediately to a 7-panel narrative sequence in which the woman is greeted at the door, poured wine, fed oysters, kissed, bathed, massaged, and then licked til she comes, after which the man is ridden like a horse and cropped for his reward. Just something about the style suggests that all that could easily take place….
Anyway, long live Georgie Tier. She no longer has her won site but her work is available from preview galleries at the World Museum of Erotic Art and the Art of Love. There’s also a great review of one of her shows here.
Hope you like these as much as I do.
