Celestial Classics: Venus

An exploration of the seemingly inhospitable hellscape that is the planet Venus, the hottest planet in our Solar System. We delve into the reasons why Venus, the Morning Star, became associated with Satan, via the word ‘lucifer’ and we discuss the prodigious fucking, portrayal of feminine beauty and unmatched sexiness of the Goddess of Love, Venus, herself.

Etched into my Mind: Gustave Doré

I take a look at one of my favourite artists, Gustav Doré, most famous for his etchings (mostly wood, sometimes metal) but who was also a remarkable painter and illustrator.

I go through a few of my favourite pieces, mainly from La Comedia Divina, The Divine Comedy, by Dante Alighieri, Paradise Lost, by John Milton and Doré’s etchings for the Bible.
