Visual Female of the Month – August
– Kaethe Butcher
At only 23, German illustrator, Kaethe Butcher is pretty phenomenal. Her erotic illustrations explore the human body, as well as an array of human emotion, with words often mixing into striking black and white graphics to add a touch of complexity. With strong sensuality and an organic rawness, Butchers work is reminiscent on Art Nouveau greats like Aubrey Beardsley and Egon Schiele. Her work explores women, female relationships and the potential for an unbreakable bond between our gender. Each illustration is well-balanced and captivating, making us, as viewers, look a little longer and think a little harder.
Now for the interview….
The art industry/scene is really hard. But in the context of gender it’s fair, I think.
Currently I’m working on a little book and have to do some stuff for an exhibition.
Different, but mostly 3-6h, depends on the size and the motive.
I think I would switch between them. I would love to wear light green contacts, but I like to wear fancy big round glasses, too. Once I had to wear red contacts for a shooting and I didn’t get it in by myself, so a friend had to do this! Maybe I need a contacts dresser for the change.

some of my thoughts
Lady Gaga is really an inspiration for me. I love her wild passion for what she’s doing and loving.
My mind combined with my hands.
The ring from my aunt Aenne (She only met me when I was a baby, but I’ve heard that she was a really lovely person with great hair!), my beloved Scottish kilt and my Hufflepuff brooch.
