We’ve been in love with Nathan’s work for a while now. He first caught our attention as the creator of the SF Album Project, an avant-garde drag showcase inspired by iconic music albums, like Radiohead’s Ok Computer and Nirvana’s Nevermind.
Then Nathan blew our socks off and created quiet the stir with his NSFW coloring book, Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me. Turns out that coloring orgies and blowjobs while enjoying some dark humor is the perfect art therapy for tragic fags everywhere.
Nathan Rapport is also the creator of many other Instagram-worthy paintings, drawings and illustrations, including works featuring porn stars wearing drag makeup for a series titled “Strange Turn Off.” You can purchase his handmade art, like kinky pins and t-shirts, on his website. And the NSFW coloring book is available on Etsy.
