Martin Bedolla had already been posting his illustrations on Instagram (@martinbedolla) for about two years prior to 2016, but that year marked a turning point for the artist. “A friend of mine suggested I do Kinkcember,” Bedolla wrote in a post on December 1. He was citing one of a series of monthly themes, like Inktober and MerMay, that serve as prompts for visual artists on social media. “Naturally, I said sure. Ha ha. First up. Bondage.”
… Art first came to Bedolla in a way it does for many teens: through doodling. But after enrolling at Grand Rapids Community College and taking a few drawing classes, he declared fine art as a major and took his practice more seriously, later attending Kendall College of Art and Design. “After I graduated, I actually started exploring what I wanted my style to be and what I wanted to say with my work,” Bedolla says. “Initially, I always thought nudes — like, classical nudes — were fascinating and sensual. So I started there.”
