INK IS MY BLOOD - VOLUME FOUR

After the publication of the Trilogy in 2018, I wondered how to keep telling my story: did I have to completely reinvent Ink is my Blood, with a new look, another format and a different way of showing my work?

The discussions I had with you have convinced me otherwise. Indeed, my primary intention remains the same: to share my drawings with you in a straightforward, authentic way, without unnecessary decoration, through a magnificent and sensual object, in a format that fits well in your hand and allows you to taste details that might have escaped you on a phone screen. I also thought of the collectors among you, who will appreciate being able to line their shelves with an additional volume in the existing row.

CHAPTER FOUR

Ink is my Blood has therefore become a sort of serial, in which you literally leaf through, drawing after drawing, desire after desire - and here is the fourth chapter. One page leads to the other, one idea generates the next, an image spawns a new one. Calls, echoes, flashbacks, it is a form of subliminal continuity that I offer you, a mirror of my way of working: each drawing is individual, unique. Each drawing is an island and yet together they form an archipelago, bathed by the same arcane waters of an endless sea. Better: each drawing is an atoll, the emerged part of an underwater peak, the transfigured remains of an extinct volcano, memories of an interior fire that time has transformed into a poetic cipher on the immaculate page of the ocean.

So here is the start of a new series of volumes that will add to the existing trilogy: Where will this journey take us? I do not know. There is still a lot of unknown lands to be discovered and many pristine islands to be explored together - we'll see.

AN EROTIC TALE

Finally, instead of giving you, as in the previous books, the text of an expert to reflect on my world, I decided to give carte blanche to an author, singer and actress whose work I fell in love with. We met on social media and I think I can say that the mutual recognition was immediate. I am therefore very touched that Jehnny Beth has agreed to write an erotic fiction to inaugurate this new volume. Thanks to you Jehnny.

What are the funds for?

YOU ARE MY PATRONS

The objective of the campaign is to finance the design and production of the book Ink is my Blood - Volume Four along with the many goodies included in this release.

From the very beginning, I want my drawings to be available to everyone for free and without intermediaries, that's why I publish them on social networks. I love to get in direct contact with you and share my work for our mutual pleasure. Publishing books is the way I have found to generate an income from all this and with your help, day after day since 2012, I have been creating new pictures.

So thank you for all your personal commitment, for all the ways you support me. You have my deepest gratitude in advance for your pledge.

And remember: as every crowd funding project, your pledge will only be charged to your account if the campaign has reached its financial goal.

About the project owner

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. (...) 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 herself and for your pleasure. She has collaborated with Erika Lust and La Musardine, the reknowed french erotic publishing house, and with magazineslike Dazed, Juxtapoz, Vice, Playboy and NAKID.
