Actually I fell in love with the art of Kinbaku (Japanese traditional tight rope bondage) many years ago as an illustrator. I like it as either a uke (subject) or seme (tormentor). From there I also got involved with a study of the history of Japanese law (before 1870 AD). My illustrations are inspired by the work of others. It is art form in Japan and has inspired many other people around the world as an form of art. My work combines history with art. Both as explanation of a law form in a culture which radically different from modern day law and as a labor of love.

For my old viewers: I am now done with my Kinbaku Tidbits 21 and I am now presenting another of my Kinbaku Tales, this one called "Traveling Home", so enjoy. But first I have also posted a list of "Words Related to Kinbaku". A collection of Japanese words which are used in around my presentations of Kinbaku. Also posted is a short animation of mine called "Getting Ready". To be followed by 3 character sheets of faces you see a lot of in my illustrations. Giving a name to hang on them, and some sort of idea where they are coming from and their nature.
For my new viewers: I have now posted over 4100 illustrations in my gallery. A good portion of which are arranged in story lines, some short, some hundreds of illustrations long. My artwork is mostly a display the Japanese arts of Kinbaku (tight rope bondage), Shibari (binding), and Goumon (torture). That is why I refer to myself as a Kinbaku illustrator. There are also a number of special series like "Kinbaku Story" and "JIro's Jinmon", in my galleries, each 200+ illustrations long. Series like "Kinbaku Story" and "Kinbaku Nightmare" are done in a large format (4k). There are also galleries like "Kinbaku Tales" which have a number of shorter stories. Besides that I have number of large scale illustrations of Japanese Castles and fleets, in my gallery, which I have made from scratch. So explore and discover.
My illustrations are often placed in a sequential series with accompanying text to explain them more fully. The text enhances the illustrations and gives more life to the story. So to get the most out of my artwork view my illustrations and read the text. The text gives a voice to the characters in the illustrations. The text often contains notes explaining the situation more fully. Many notes are educational concerning the nature of the Japanese society in 1600 AD, at the end of the Sengoku (Waring states) period. But be warned, I pull no punches in my illustrations and commentary, my material is not for the faint of heart. It explores the dark side of people and society. Especially the beauty and mystery in the art of Japanese rope bondage.
My recent illustrations, over the last several years, many hundreds of them, are presented, as downloads, in 3840 x 2160 pixel format (4k). They can fit nicely even on a 40 inch screen. My animations are in 1280 x 720 pixel format (HD). Remember that things don't stay forever on the web, they often come and go like the wind. so collect them and put things you like in a safe place.
What a wonderful collection!
I could choose a hundred pictures where I would to play the main role! There are so many wonderful contortions, so many delicious tortures. I'd like to be in all of them
One more Time, Thanks a lot, i have found something making me dreaming for Years, to be one of these Victims.
You are welcome. Take a careful look around the galleries, there are over 4000 illustrations and don't forget the text. I average a illustration a day and have been doing this for over 8 years. Many of my illustrations are arranged in stories.
Sure, i read Text too, that's just incredible, shameful and cruel Postures as you create it. You just illustrate all the bad Ideas i had in my Mind before to see your Work. I dont know if you imagine you as a uke or as a Tormenter, but it's just a Dream to watch your Artwork. I'd like so much to be one of these uke. I hope you'll never stop your Work and post new Ideas in the Future. Good Luck !
