Today on Artist’s Story we are talking to the up-and-coming oceanic themed dildo artisan, Brandie of Tails and Portholes!
Bit of both sometimes. I keep my pigments sorted by color, and all my molds and what not on a separate shelf from the work table but….sometimes I leave things out on the table haha.
I’ve been drawing and writing forever! (fun fact, I’ve even gotten a poem published.) I went to college for an art degree but I never called myself an artist until I started making dildos. I’m not bad at the other things, I’m not. But I’m proud of what I can do in silicone and it doesn’t feel weird to call myself an “artisian dildo maker” at all.
Hahaha the poem was YEARS ago. I have the book it was in but other then that…. *shrugs noncommittally*. Yes I do. My character is a coyote/chipmunk hybrid and I enjoy the fandom. Most of my friends are furries. They’re very welcoming and easy to get along with (For the most part, there’s drama everywhere if you look hard enough).
Furry friends are the best!
Not really. Mermaids? Sea creatures? I get an idea and throw myself at figuring it out. Sometimes more on the back burner but the thoughts are always rolling around.
I wouldn’t call it moonlighting. Haha I *have* a mermaid tail that I do swim in occasionally. I do want to eventually make my own full silicone mermaid tail.
For sculpting it’s when it feels right. That’s really kinda wishy washy I know but its the truth. Lol
Not really. 🙂 I love all of my silicone pours equally.
Yes! I’m switching from clay to 3D modeling and printing.
Yes, the Poseidon (which was 3D modeled by the Lovely Down Under Dicks on tumblr and given to me to make) and the Leviathan, which is my personal take on a tentacle. The Poseidon will be smaller, topping out at around 4 inches or so while the Leviathan will be 7ish.
Leatherworking? Maybe? Chainmaille?
Blue and pinks!
That’s absolutely true! Its the only thing he does that remotely manly. Haha! He’s a giant priss who adores clothes and being clean so the fact that he rides a motorcycle and loves it is really his only saving grace! XP
