The first bondage, S & M-illustrations created in 1983. More than pretty badly he talked with contract work on water, inter alia, to be on the side to be able to finance his training as a commercial artist.
Since Tarsis already “childhood” drew of like scruffy pictures, and he found that were published in his time no good BDSM drawings in various publications, he strode unceremoniously itself into action and applied in connection with any hip magazines with its Work. Despite all the unimaginative nonsense that was in the 70s and 80s in the “bondage shelves” was Tarsis a publisher who supported his first efforts to quality.
Thus arose in 1984 first work for a bondage magazine of Harmony. The cooperation with the publishing house opened more doors to him. Soon he was able to get a taste as editor and art director of three magazines in other areas of the house such. As video production and photo shoot. Incidentally and “necessity”, he acquired as photography, video editing and “make ropes in bondage style of”. After successful 3 1/2 years at Harmony moved to Tarshish H.O.M.

After years in which he produced for others and worked, Brian is now his “own man” and adds from his home base in Seattle, the “BDSM-world”.
Its publication Valeria convinces in all respects. A fantasy S & M bondage story the appearance and content his talent reflects. Unfortunately, the album was released only in black and white printing.
Because of its working life abwechlungsreichen Tarsis has a trained eye for mood and ambience, a mature Technique and an outstanding imagery. The S & M enthusiasts it remains nothing guilty and presented his stories with sharp hardcore scenes. Tarsis moves despite the S & M-thread under and treat “cartoon characters” with respect. Even if it is “sometimes painful for the players,” Tarsis is never exaggerated brutal; otherwise as some “colleagues” from the Internet scene. In his stories bondage and S & M still remains a pleasurable, painful game between the sexes.

First Comics published. A very inefficient way of earning a living but a way, one can hope, of assembling stories and Writing. Obsession is the antagonistic force that impulses the desire to open the scene in “l’origine du monde” ( by Courbet ). It’s force opposite to that of Writing, an overpresence due to fascination .

The overwork required by painting activity generates a conflict with comic strips’s own limits. Comics require schematic strokes one way or another. Conflict begins with “The invention of Morel”; Amiga 3000 and programming language”.asm” …. We are still far from the stage of pictures. Riverstone, author of comics strips then turned into an “ant”, but, the Lord of insects is pityless !…

Silicon Graphics at ExMachina (T.D.I. labs ); European temple of computer graphic pictures, place of birth of “Explore” the software which later generated “Maya” along with Alias & Wavefront ….
Also worked in several projects like: “PolaX” by L . Carax Reference images for “Final Fantasy” and “Man ‘ s adventure” by Yves Coppens …

“Evy in Ruins” ( film and comic book) gets moving, quicker and easier but the author is caught in the trap: Comic strips projects, computer Graphic pictures and movies are simultaneous, consequently, addictive. Fortunately insects have a short life-span .
