Ask Morgana 139: Russ Platt
Each artist I feature here has his or her own vision of women. There are two artists (that I know of) by the name of Russell Platt, one is British, the other is from San Jose, California. The American one draws comic-book women, the British one doesn’t. The American one has… I don’t know how to put this… an optimistic mental image of female physique. Okay, an impossible one. It’s difficult to say where his arrow lands. Is this male wish-fulfilment or satire, or even a measure of both? Or has he simply got a kink for women of a certain build, and he’s engaged in some celebratory self-indulgence? You say.
