In the newest issue of the Lewd Spotlight, we have a quiet and relaxing chat with artist Marmalade Mum, a wild art enthusiast of all things lewd and raunchy.
LewdGamer: Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
Marmalade Mum: I am Marmalade Mum! Also known as supermarmalademum because someone stole my account name. I draw a LOT of porn art stuff, ranging from vanilla to fetishes you didn't even know existed!
LewdGamer: How and when did you start drawing?
Marmalade Mum: Drawing has always been a thing in my family, so naturally all of my siblings got into art REALLY early on. It was a competition among all of us kids in my house growing up, and being the youngest, I had some rough competition, to say the least! (almost) All of my sisters have pursued a professional art career, so it's really just a lifestyle.
LewdGamer: How long have you been drawing lewd artwork and what got you into it?
Marmalade Mum: The first lewd drawing I did was in the fourth grade with one of my elementary school boyfriends. He wanted me to draw a pinup of a girl squeezing her boobies with milk spraying EVERYWHERE. Looking back, I guess he must have just been bottle-fed as an infant or something. Other than that, though, I guess there was never a want or need to draw porn stuff. Through my childhood, I was REALLY into Neopets, Ovipets and Deviantart adoptables. I didn't do much lewd stuff on there aside from some softcore ERP. Just mostly drawing big-eyed fox cats. After graduating high school back in 2014, I decided to start up a porn tumblr for fun. It was mostly to force myself into drawing real life people. Learning has always been a #1 priority for me!
LewdGamer: How did you arrive at your current art style?
Marmalade Mum: Many people might be able to notice the influences of Neopets and Ovipets art that I grew up being obsessed with. I would spend hours watching a ton of anime and read tons of yaoi in my teenage years so that probably affected how I draw. Also, a lot of plagiarism of the art from my older siblings influenced my style.
LewdGamer: Is there anything you wouldn't draw?
There's a ton of stuff that I don't draw ranging from silly, personal phobias, to stuff like diapers, which I don't draw out of principle.
LewdGamer: Do you ever face any difficulties in your drawing process?
Marmalade Mum: Mainly physical fatigue. My wrist kills sometimes after drawing for 12 hours straight. Another difficulty I have doesn't necessarily have to do with my drawing process, but managing commissions and emails can get complicated.
LewdGamer: Could you briefly describe some of the projects you're currently working on?
Marmalade Mum: Sure, I've got an ongoing comic where Quiet from MGSV transforms into a horse girl and gets fucked by a horse dong. Also working on a lot of 3D animation stuff I've yet to release!
LewdGamer: Lastly, how do you feel about recent climate on multiple social media platforms that forces artists to censor or otherwise alter their work?
Marmalade Mum: While I always feel that censorship is a detriment to social platforms, I also understand that this lets artists work together more as a community. This recent Tumblr fiasco, as well as some attempts by others to censor my content specifically, has been an all-around positive experience for me on both a personal and professional level. Knowing that other artists go through the same stuff I go through is really reassuring and it's great to hear from these other amazing creators in my field of work that I otherwise would have never even heard about or neglected to see if none of this happened. My message to other creators would be to not let a vocal minority of people tell you how to think/act. I see so many artists crumple under this facade of authority that really has no consequence being opposed.
The artist also has their own Patreon account for those willing to support the creator directly.
