early 2006 I was contacted by and artist named Roger
Benson. He wanted to know if I would like to give
his art work exposure on my site. He was attracted
to Hunterís Liar because his art is inspired by both
John Willie and Robert Bishop. I took one look at
his drawing and knew that they would be a perfect
complement to my own work. Roger Benson does a
variety of BDSM illustrations, some of which involve
the erotic hanging theme.
In one series, set in the l950s, a shapely l9 year
old miss -- Lorna W. -- has the misfortune to be
with her juvenile delinquency-inclined boyfriend
when he robs the Pleasant Corners Gas Station in the
course of which he pushes the elderly night
attendant, the much loved "Pop" McCord, causing the
old gentleman to fall, strike his bald pate on an
arborite counter, and thereby perish.
Learned Judge Roger Benson takes a dim view of such
goings on and sentences both miscreants to The
Lorna's adventures at the Reformatory for Naughty
Girls are extended and varied.
He's interested in posting these here, one
illustration at a time and accompanying each
illustration with a poll (or polls) designed to
elicit viewer feedback. This would be of interest to
him and helpful in his future work.
We both look
forward to hearing your feedback.
