INK IS MY BLOOD -  VOLUME TWO

Ink is my Blood - Volume Two is the second book in a series of at least three that will covers the major part of my graphic work to this day. We originally planned to publish this book in spring 2018, but after your incredible response to Volume One, we decided to accelerate the pace and offer you this new Volume before Christmas.

I am very pround and honored that Anne Hautecoeur, director of the renowned french erotic publishing house La Musardine, accepted my invitation to write the introduction and that Dimitris Karathanos, journalist and culture contributor at Athens Voice, that I have learned to appreciate in recent time, was so kind to write an essay on my work. Last but not least, Thomas Selzam, another old traveling companion, contributes with his dreamlike fictions to the summary of this new journey in the meanderings of my ink. All the texts are translated into English and French.

Once again we have worked very hard to make this collection of more than 130 drawings even more beautiful as the first Volume and we introduced bigger drawings that span an entire double page. And since we want the complete series to be a collectible, we kept the same size and content of 9.1" x 11.2" for 148 pages and used that paper and printing quality which already proved to be a unique sensual experience.

And now, it's up to you to choose what makes you happy ...

A cosa serviranno i fondi ?

 

PRICING

Our main goal is to make a beautiful book with as many drawings as possible at an affordable price. That's why we calculated our budget fairly and we finally set the price at €33 for each book. The costs are dedicated mainly to the book production (writing, layout, printing) and shipping costs.

In order to reach the break even we have to sell about 500 copies. If orders happily exceed this figure, the surplus will be affected:

  • to make the book even more attractive, among other things with additional goodies
  • to pay the graphic designer a decent wage (because, for the time being, he practically works pro bono)
  • to reward all the wonderful friends and authors who by their large and small contributions have made this book more than a collection of drawings
  • To pre-finance the preparation of Volume Three in order to save time on their production and to be able to deliver them faster.
  • Finally, as some of you may know, drawing is not my main activity: I have a day job to pay the bills and I draw mostly at night. I would really like to reverse this situation and make drawing my everyday's life.

 

 

CROWDFUNDING

This project should remain between you and me: from the very beginning my work was published on social networks to avoid intermediaries, to get in direct contact with you. I started this relationship without filters with you, as a four-eyes dialogue and I would like to keep it in this way, with the sole purpose of sharing my drawings for our mutual pleasure. In addition, intermediaries automatically would increase the price that you pay as a customer.

A pledge is more than just a purchase: it is your personal commitment. It is a way for you to support me and allow me to work even more freely. Moreover, as this is a crowdfunding project, your pledge will only be charged to your account if, as we hope, the campaign has reached its financial goal.

A proposito del progettista

 

APOLLONIA SAINTCLAIR

“What makes Apollonia’s work so popular? Aside from the mind-blowing intricacy and detail in her work, the sheer skill with which she creates her art in cinematic, post-noir, stunningly imaginative ways, is that she captures the essence of what sexuality means for each of us. Whether it’s a naked woman riding a rocket ship into outer space; or being dragged into the depths of hell by multiple hands; engaging in BDSM or octopus fetishism; the exquisite worlds she invites us into in each piece are as varied as each of our own inner desires and fantasies. They are meant for everyone – and their lack of bias, or objectivity draws us as the viewers into scenes we never could have imagined as erotic or arousing – but that most certainly are. She deliberately creates work “about the ambiguous situations where, finally, the interpretation depends mostly on the viewer.” Rather than forcing her narrative down our throats, in the violent way in which pornography can insist that we experience our personal sexuality, she opens the door for us to discover.” Erika Lust

The drawings of Apollonia Saintclair appeared from nowhere in 2012 on the Internet. She draws essentially for her – and your – pleasure. She has collaborated with Erika Lust and appeared in many magazines including Dazed, Juxtapoz Magazine, Vice, Playboy and NAKID.
