This is a book put together by an artist called SkullBoy who is a graphic designer, illustartor and curator based in Durban. I first met him a few months ago when he curated the Locals Only exhibition at Wolves. We bumped into each other again 2 days ago and before he left he gave Shane and I a copy of his latest project, which is a book that includes a collection of stories of anonymous participants’ sexual debuts – the circumstances, scenarios, emotions, celebrations and tragedies of how they came to lose virginity’s.
He choose 100 out of the 300 collected accounts and then rendered them into a 100 small artworks. It’s a really interesting book, sad at times but also funny and a bit awkward. I think his illustrations are really cool and I like how he has put this piece together and I can definitely say that I don’t own anything like it. It’s currently sitting on my coffee table but I’m going to have to pack it away when my gran comes to visit. Ha.
There are only 300 copies, if you are interested in owning one you can contact him here firstname.lastname@example.org You can also check out more of his work and blog here .
