The name “ego assassin” refers to the philosophy that one can remake themself into any person they want to be; if only they can set aside all preconceived notions about who they are. Latex, being the perfect medium for transformation, allows you to become any character or creature you’d like to be.
ego assassin, based in Toronto, Canada is owned and operated by James Hagarty, a graphic designer and screen printer, and Slinka, a former fetish model. The company was started by James in 2003 as a custom designed t-shirt and screen printing business and moved into screen printing latex a year later.
ego assassin’s signature style focuses on colorful, wearable pieces that serve as a platform for their distinctive printed graphics. Design influences and inspiration come from spy movies, concept art, comic books, and custom motorcycles. Many of the prints are inspired by vintage woodcuts, classical Japanese paintings, and Native American art.
The use of printing allows for a greater range of images, and much finer detail than is possible to achieve with appliques. Their latest print, “Great Wave”, is based on the painting of the same name by the classical Japanese artist, Hokusai. It is a highly detailed and complex 2-color print, the likes of which has not been seen on latex before.
ego assassin also offers a growing range of classes teaching the basics of latex construction. The goal of these classes is to further develop and support the growing latex community in Canada and abroad. Their latest workshop, RUB 201, which covers the principles of latex corsetry has sold out well in advance. For information on future workshops, check out ego assassin’s Facebook page.
The Rubberist International Rubber Camp 2008 (R.I.S.C.) is approaching fast!
Kitty and I visited the camp in 2007. We stayed at the camp for three days and had a good time. The atmosphere was good, it was like living in rubber family, where everybody is nice and helpful.
The location of the camp is an old farm building here in Denmark, far from public eyes. Its privately run by a sweet older rubber couple and not a fancy luxury hotel. The building offer multiple playrooms and well equipped dungeons, a huge rubber movie library – showroom, a dormitory and several private rooms for couples, outside there is a heated pool and a nice garden with a private forest.
This year’s Rubberist International Summer Camp runs from 17th – 25th of July, so if you wish to go, you need to sign up now!
Frank is a 33 year old artist, born in Zurich, but currently living and working in Essex in the UK. He is fascinated by the female form combined with the reflections of latex, highly erotic, naked without nakedness.
He explains “I am interested in the erotic appeal of this subject and strive to make erotic art without the preconceived idea, avoiding cliches, but using cliches in a new way, with as little information as possible, the edge of a stocking top at extreme close up, could be anything but also nothing else, to essentially make erotic art highly decorative whilst remaining in essence erotic art.”
