Naked Andromeda stands naked and chained to a bone-like rock, the monster that is to devour her looming in the misty background.

Andromeda by Aleksandra Marchocka. This image was commissioned by Iago Faustus and is presented here by agreement between Faustus and the artist.

We have an art special for you good readers to end the month of May. This is Andromeda by Aleksandra Marchocka. Andromeda is looking mighty tasty chained to that rock. Would-be rescuer Perseus is nowhere to be seen; perhaps he has missed his bus. Poor Andromeda!

You can download the whole image in its full resolution by right-clicking and saving.

Aleksandra Marchocka has both a DeviantArt and a professional site, and can be reached on Instagram and Facebook as well.

Squick or Squee 2014 bonus: Baron Samedi

In addition to her commissioned images, KristinF volunteered an additional image for this year’s Squick or Squee parade, which we might perhaps see as another culture’s mad science at work. If you make smutty double-entendres about Baron Samedi’s erection in the comments, I’m going to have to pretend not to know you.
