Born on this day in 1872, Aubrey Vincent Beardsley, an English illustrator is a somewhat controversial character. His drawing style using black ink was heavily influenced by japanese woodcuts from artists such as the famous Katsushika Hokusai. But his focus on the grotesque and erotic made him a bit of guilty pleasure.
The BBC recently released a documentary on iPlayer which is available here – http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02t77gl. I can only assume it was created in the late 70s or early 80s as the style of the film is as engaging as the artist himself
