1) Do you want to tell us something about yourself and your art?

Hi, I’m DesperateLaughter. I’m just a guy who likes making art and stories for people to read. I’ve always wanted to be a comic or manga artist, but could never draw in such detail, so I settled for the next best thing I could find.

2) What techniques do you use to draw? Do you have a favorite artist that inspires you?

I wouldn’t call what I do “drawing” per-se, but it’s the closest thing I could get to for my own personal goals. I use a software called “DAZ3D” which allows you to use 3D models in 3D environments and “pose” or position them anyway you want. You could say the artist who inspired me was JennyGirl from DeviantArt, but I’ve seen numerous other 3D artists whose art made me want to learn how DAZ3D operates.

3) How much was the passion for drawing born in you? And the one for the tickle?

I’ve always liked to draw and doodle, but could never get good enough to draw people or extensive backgrounds, no matter how hard I tried or how many guides I watched. Even as far back as pre-school I would draw airplanes, spaceships, castles, and so on. But characters or people were always out of my league.

As far as tickling goes, I’ve always had the fetish. There was a girl I went to school with I would tickle and tease every chance I got, but I stopped as we got older.

4) What are the tickling scenarios that you prefer to draw?

I tend to lean more towards the horror side of things. I think it’s such an underrated element in tickle stories and comics, and there are a few movie scenes where tickling would have been a welcomed addition. I just like the idea of seeing a woman wearing a revealing crop top wandering into a haunted house for a paranormal investigation, but rather than haunting her, killing her, or torturing her, the spirits inside the haunted house tickle the living crap out of her. It’s probably what I’d do if I were a ghost. But aside from the horror aspects, I’ll make comics that show some playful teasing between friends, romantic turn ons between couples, or even interrogations. I’m not picky with the art I make.

5) What are the aspects of tickling that you intend to represent with your art? Example: the laughing, the wriggling, the relationship between tickler and ticklee?

I tend to tackle everything I can at once. I’ll make it clear the ticklee likes being tickled and show them wiggling around in various images, but the relationship between the characters is a must have for me. Is the ticklee scared of their tickler, or are they best friends? How do they know each other, and how did they meet? Each of my comics has its own beginning, middle and ending. So, each of my comics is its own little self-contained story. I find it difficult for me to make a story or comic if it just focuses on tickling and there’s no character development throughout the story. So, the relationship aspect is arguably the most important for me as the artist.

6) Online there are countless photos and videos of tickling sessions. In your opinion, what do illustrations offer more than images of real scenes?

Illustrations have one big advantage over real pictures, which is that illustrations aren’t limited to reality. An illustration can be something so wild and over the top that a real model would never be able to mimic it.

7) In your opinion, what makes tickling so interesting for fans of this phenomenon?

Tickling seems to be a pretty common fetish, but I think it’s one people have trouble expressing their interest in without being ruthlessly judged by society. Tickling is something a mother or father does to their kids when they’re little, but is never talked about beyond that, despite it being many people’s biggest fetish. For me personally, tickling is more interesting than sex. I couldn’t care less about sexual activities, but I would gladly pay a pretty girl to let me tickle her if I knew she was into that sort of thing.

8) What are your works of which you are most proud?

Gosh, that’s a tough one. I suppose if you held a gun to my head and demanded I pick one, I’d probably say my favorite free work is “The Haunted Manor” since it’s such a nostalgia trip for me. But I have numerous free comics on my DeviantArt profile. Nearly 2,000 images as I’m writing this.

For my favorite premium series of images, I would have to say “Jessica the Ticklee: Chapter 6.” For no other reason than I just had a lot of fun making that series, AND it was when I upgraded to a new computer, which made rendering my images so much easier.

But if I HAD to choose a favorite image, I’d probably say image 73 of “Tickle Rivals.”

9) Do you have any particular artistic goals for the future?

I would LOVE to become a well-known name and artist in the tickling community. I would like nothing other than my “Jessica the Ticklee” series to become one of the biggest titles in the tickling world.

10) Do you think AIs will end up enriching or impoverishing the art of tickling representations?

AI art is something I have particularly no real love for. AI has its places, but I don’t think art is one of those places. While AI may make an art piece, it can’t feel what makes that art piece special. An artist will put a piece of their very soul into whatever art piece they make. That’s something an AI will never be able to do, no matter how advanced.
