    ...many many thanks for the comments and taking a read man!

    Got a lot of interviews out awaiting answers, so no real idea who is next.

    AM looking to start up a 'Shop Talk' series on interviews too - interviewing gallery + store owners about art + commerce and general shit talking as always, so stay tuned for those.

    many thanks for the comments man!

    ... there is a contact page on the site, BUT if any artists you know (or out there) want to submit themselves to the horror that is an Art Talk, just tell em' to email me at: nutandbolt@gmail.com

    AND i do post a little preview a day or so before new content goes up on Art Whore, on the @art_whore Instagram. Mainly just post my collection and things i see round the place that i like. And never whole interviews, just links.

    Re: 'Art Whore': New Art Talk - Tina Lugo

    ... NEW Art Talk up on Art-Whore with Bronx, NYC based artist Tina N. Lugo.

    Tina's work pays homage to both Western pop culture, and the long tradition of Japanese art - all with an added twist.

    N.B - Her work is erotic and violent - so pretty much NSFW just so you know!

    Check:

    http://artwhorecult.com/art-talk-tina-lugo/

    Tina discusses her love of art school, her artistic process, her insights into human sexuality, feminism and much much more.

    One of the most insightful and revealing Art Talk's yet!

    Tina is MAINLY a painter, but occasionally works with toys - see pic below:

    Even though its artwork. Spoiler tags arent for hiding nsfw stuff. Should probably just remove it altogether

    ... yeah, wasn't sure myself what to do. I'll know in the future! Thanks for the tips.

    Fixed it up now

    * pic is hidden as a 'spoiler'.
    * made lotsa notes about her paintings being pretty NSFW.

    Re: 'Art Whore': New Art Talk - Tina Lugo

    i was saying that this site is for toys and not NSFW images even if they are artwork. a ton of people visit here at work and dont need any fear of shit like that popping up. you should just link it offsite and mark it as nsfw. putting it under a spoiler doesnt make it acceptable here. and for the record, no i'm not offended by the image.

    Re: 'Art Whore': New Art Talk - Tina Lugo

    Very cool interview. Offers quite a bit more insight then a lot of the previous ones. The more detailed questions are a nice change of pace though I have enjoyed pretty much all of the other ones as well.

    Yeah I'd take this advice. Better safe then sorry.

    * guys - noted: will no longer post full on stuff here (spoilers included).

    * AND post fixed. ;)

    * Waterbear - MAN, i asked Tina if she minded "weird" questions, and she said no. So that's all the stuff under the "Odds N Ends" heading. Going to start asking if artists mind weird questions more often now!

    Re: 'Art Whore': New Art Talk - THE SCHMUCKLORD

    ^ Meh, his toys are executed too well to pose as a counterpoint to Sucklord"s.
    Just another semi wise ass in need of attention. Packaging real shit with a Suckadelic toy would be nice though.

    Re: 'ART WHORE': New Art Talk - Nasty Neil of 'Wasted Talent

    Mr. Justin Jewett aka ‘Rocket Society’ is an American artist and designer whose art stems from a love of ‘GI Joes’, Stephen King, ‘Disney’, punk culture, metaphysics, and Spider Man to name but a few.

    J is known to many SB'ers thanks to his collaborative work with Mr. Brian Ewing released under the ‘Meta Crypt’ label.

    Lately, Justin has branched out lone gunman style with his ‘nul’ and ‘Hateball’ labels – releasing zines, patches and the Zine Wolf toy, to much acclaim.

    And his artistic aim? “In the end, I really really—like REALLY—try to just avoid pretense and do what I’m doing for me.“

    Read Justin's highly informative and honest Art Talk interview in the link, below:
