In the first issue of SUPER NASTY we pronounced our love for fashion illustrator Tony Viramontes, who retrained the audience’s eye to appreciate the things we usually take for granted in design: the line down a back instead of the ruffles on a sleeve, say, or the perfection of light glinting off a curling tendril of hair. In his 33 years before he died in 1988, he never went for the obvious, drawing at drastic angles, and highlighting the strength in women and the sensuousness in men. He noted how couture and pop each influenced the other, and so worked with the best of both worlds in clientele, including the likes of Yves Saint Laurent, Valentino, Versace, Paloma Picasso, Duran Duran, Donna Summer, and Janet Jackson. With electric lines and smoldering smudges, his work implied motion, fast-paced and edgy, a sort of high energy meets dark lounge mystery in iconic contrast.
