Carmine Santaniello- St Sebastian
Saint Sebastian! Again. And I won’t stop anytime soon.
I want to make a really dramatic one
SUGIURA Shiho, Silver Diamond
On the right, we see a man near a tree, arrows falling to the ground. This image appropriates the figure of St Sebastian; man is not at someone’s mercy, tied to a tree. The arrows do not reach him. In this story, he is an immortal character.
So I made a Saint Sebastian for my noticeboard. How offensive is that on a scale of 1-10? Less than 6 and I’m keeping it.
(For reference: 1 is the Pope blessing children, 10 is Piss Christ)
Oh languid beauty with pouted lip,
Sebastian dies indifferent to arrows
Of lustful fortune. His beauty disdains
Your desire. He will expire like sleeping,
Like slipping easily into sleep. So heavy
Is his gorgeousness: it weighs upon him
Like an ache, a bruise, a bondage.
Injure me with love, martyr, muse,
Miracle of sex and sensitive thought.
I ought only to love your secret self.
Poem by Shentoncarrington
A sketch of Sylvester Ulv Henriksen. This one is dedicated to Vispreeve with love.

I drew him Saint Sebastian.
I do not draw his naked body very much. It is difficult for me to draw men’s naked body and I love him wearing clothes than naked. But his torso is too beautiful and good balanced, I want to draw him as Saint Sebastian. I drew this drawing in the motif of G.Moeau’s Sebastian.He is my favorite painter.
When I draw him,it is important for me that I draw him lovely and attractive anyway.If his fans see my drawings, I want them to think these are lovely.So I do not want to draw naked,because I can not draw it well. And then I am right-handed,I can not draw a face which turned to the right well. So he I draw generally turns to the left side.
