ABOUT THE ARTWORK

This original preliminary drawing of Arm, the main character of “La mariposa y la llama”, was created by José María Martín Saurí. 

Illustrated by him and written by Enrique Sánchez Abulí, “La mariposa y la llama”,   originally appeared in black and white in Spanish in the collection “Maestros del Erotismo nº2”, published by RBA’s Playboy in 1997. It was later published in black and white in the Italian erotic magazine “Blue” and later in color in Germany. In 2008, it was reissued by Norma Editorial in a larger format than the 1997 edition, with a new cover.

“La mariposa y la llama” is a story set in the Middle Ages, blending elements of sword and sorcery in a heroic fantasy adventure filled with eroticism. It follows the courageous warrior Arm, one of the bravest and most powerful of his time, as he embarks on a quest for new adventures. Along his journey, amidst the forest, he meets the enigmatic witch Ariadne and falls in love with her. Arm will stop at nothing to win her affection.

This excellent piece includes the artist’s seal on the right of the artwork.

From 1975 onwards, he began collaborating with foreign publishers, initially focusing on romantic stories before transitioning to horror. Towards the end of the seventies, he published scattered works in Spanish magazines such as “Terror Gráfico”, “Blue Jeans”, “Más Madera!”, and “Rampa”. Throughout the 1980s, he collaborate with “Interviú” magazine and provided illustrations for biographies of “Alexander the Great” and “Shakespeare” for Bruguera. One of his most notable works is “The Odyssey” a mythological series written by Pérez Navarro that was initially published in “Heavy Metal” and later in “Comix Internacional”.
