Georges Topfer was a French spanking artist from the late 1910s to the mid-1930s. Topfer often used the pseudonyms Gaston Smit, G. Smit, GTS and James Barclay. Below are his illustrations from the 1914 novel A Strange Passion: Flagellation as Practised at the Present Day Studies by Pierre Guénolé.
Maurice de Vindas was a French author and illustrator of spanking novels in the 1920s and 1930s. The artwork below is from the 1921 novel Turbulentes Écolières (Turbulent Schoolgirls), which he wrote and illustrated.
“Around eight o’clock she heard furtive footsteps along the corridor. Immediately she began to tremble, not knowing exactly why, but sensing something abnormal nonetheless. The door to her bedroom opened slowly and her aunt appeared smiling, holding a long martinet in her hand. The young woman was simply dressed in a light bathrobe; bare feet in velvet slippers. Without a word she walked over to the bed and with a quick gesture threw back the covers. Dorothy, trembling, dared not protest, her mind lost, her eyes haggard, she kept the most complete stillness, seeming to understand nothing of all these preparations. But when she saw herself thus discovered, she gave a start of modesty and instinctively rolled over on the mattress. Her persecutorasked for no more. Soon the young girl found herself ready to receive the correction…” – Excerpt fromTurbulentes Écolières
From the WolfieToons Blog, Larken composed the rest of the song to accompany the illustration above:
“We gather together to watch Rosey’s spanking. He chastens, and hastens his will to make known. Though turkey is waiting, they’ll postpone the thanking; Despite the dust bunnies, his lap o’er she’s thrown. He chides her and guides her, the spanks, they are raining; Ordaining, maintaining his kitchen divine. So from the beginning, our Rosie wasn’t winning; We never, no never on fungus will dine. The spanking is ouchy, but no one is grouchy. Who knows if it’s better to give than receive. Let this congregation observe her elation, As Rosie gives thanks to be over his knee.”
I’ve been in love with cartoons and cartooning as long as I remember. And I found spanking sexy before I knew what sex was! Well, let me amend that a bit — I found some spankings sexy. On the rare occasions in my youth when Pop had to resort to the belt, it wasn’t quite as entertaining.
However, one of my earliest childhood memories was seeing an old Walter Lantz cartoon on TV, Fox and The Rabbit, the end of which featured a close-up of a bunny’s round white bottom being spanked, with bright red hand-prints appearing! That image spoke to me! It was a boy bunny, but the general idea was good.
As I grew up. there were lots of images of girls lovingly spanked — on TV, in the movies, magazines and comics — and although I wasn’t sure if it was quite normal to enjoy that so much, I did, and included it in the secret stash of my artistic expressions.
When the Internet was invented, I met decent, intelligent, loving and funny people who shared my special interest, and finally had an audience for “WolfieToons!”
Where can your spanking art be seen?
Oh, all over the Web, as a matter of fact, but in particular at Discipline and Desire and my WolfieToons Blog! One of my first cartoons on the Internet was a Disney parody of Jiminy Cricket performing his duty as Tinker Bell’s conscience, which seems to be a big favorite! I’ll have to do a new and better version one of these days!
What inspires you to draw?
I have a weekly deadline! Okay, I really do enjoy the creative process, making something that will amuse and titillate, so I’d still be doing WolfieToons, anyway, but maybe not as often. I do see artwork, in print and on the Web, that excites me to try to do something as good!
Where do you get your ideas from?
I’m a wiseguy by nature and nurture, so that’s a good start. I’m very fond of puns and wordplay in general. Sometimes an appealing image comes to mind, or I do something around one of the holidays.
It’s hard to say exactly how these things evolve, but it is a deliberate process, it’s a type of writing. My dearest friend Springrose helps a lot — I often run an idea by her, and if it gets an honest laugh or an “ooh!” then I run with it. Of course, some cartoons come out better than others, and there have been some real clunkers. Funny thing is, some of the ones I prize often get a collective yawn, and others I think only fit for the shredder can be huge favorites! I do try to blend sex and good-natured humor in each of the WolfieToons. Sex is pretty funny to start with, you know!
Are there other artists that interest or inspire you?
There have been and are a lot; artists of all types, but my real passion is for cartoon art.
To start with, there were animated cartoon directors like Tex Avery, Bob Clampett, and Chuck Jones, plus Disney’s crew, of course. In the newspapers, I enjoyed Al Capp’s Li’l Abner, and Walt Kelly’s Pogo, and, naturally, Charles Schultz’s Peanuts, just to name three.
Probably only older American comic book fans will recognize the names Gil Kane, Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, who were special favorites of mine. Marie Severin drew the funniest caricatures and parodies this side of Jack Davis and Mort Drucker, who are two other artists whose work inspires and intimidates me!
There are two guys lately who share my love of Babes and Funny Animals: Dean Yeagle, who did “Mandy” for Playboy as well as TV commercials and a lot of other stuff, and Frank Cho, who had a regular feature called Liberty Meadows! Both of those guys are worth a web search!
Well, I could go on and on, but that would bore the pants off some readers.
Say, that might not be a bad idea in some cases…
Do you have a particular technique or way that you go about drawing?
It’s very sloppy, and probably way too complicated. I do a batch of preliminary sketches, often using photo references for expressions and anatomy. After I’ve noodled together what I like, I do a final drawing, tracing the typing paper sketches onto Bristol board using a homemade ‘light box’, then I ink it, scan it, correct any problems on the computer, add the lettering and borders, and then I color it. To do a whole cartoon can take anywhere from six to twelve hours, but not necessarily all at once. I’m in the process of learning new graphics programs to get a better and more professional look, and — hopefully? — cut down the time a bit.
Do you prefer to draw in colour or black & white/greyscale?
My first love is black and white; I like the line drawings and the various ways of shading. But color adds a lot, and I usually do the WolfieToons in color. (When they’re seen in the UK, they’re in “colour!”)
Is there a target audience that you specifically aim at?
Well, “specifically” it would be my fellow Spankophiles, both women and men.
Does your artwork represent your own spanking preferences?
Pretty much; most WolfieToon women find themselves over the fellas’ laps — I like the intimacy of that best — and most often everyone is having a good time. But sometimes more complex emotions come into play, and I also do implements, too — some belts and straps and canes. Lots of people like that, too.
Do you produce artwork which is not related to spanking as well?
Yes, I do! Under my real name I’ve just finished book covers for a spy thriller and a funny romance, and I have some funny-animal type things that will be put onto coffee mugs, t-shirts, caps, plastic diaper covers and such soon. I’ve done cartoons for print ads, designed a school logo, did some store displays, and even a billboard!
Do you draw just for personal pleasure or for profit?
Yes. Yes, I do.
All right, to give a better answer, I’ve always taken great pleasure in drawing, but only lately dared to charge for it.
Have you considered using your artwork in spanking publications/books?
If you mean “am I taking commissions?” I’m holding off on most of that right now while I order some things in my personal life and acquire the aforementioned graphic improvements. There are some collected WolfieToons in different formats on sale at Lulu, which I have links to on my blog.
Do you have any plans for future artwork?
In fact, I’m doing this week’s WolfieToon for Discipline and Desire right now! Well, okay, I’m typing right now, but the cartoon is over on the table. I have some more ‘G-rated’ book covers planned, and other stuff my folks can show off to their friends.
“The results of this dramatic intimacy include endorphins aplenty, a fine sense of satisfaction for both Spanker and Spankee, and, even if your bottom hasn’t really become a night-light, a definite afterglow!” – Dave Wolfe
