Pulling Rank – Hand-Drawn Pen & Ink Original
Pulling Rank celebrates Generation Z. Millennials insist we label EVERYTHING, but Gen Z goes the other way - refusing to search for words to describe themselves, feeling no need to conform to mainstream beauty, and being able to imagine being paid for simply being who they are. Every one an unknown legend in her time.
Pulling Rank is about Gen Z’s nonchalant punkness. This is a generation that steps in and out of gender and sexuality like they were hot-tubs.

She has an avid collector base from the feminist-centred and invite-only parties that Judi curates. Her work is often confrontational, and her erotic work has seen her banned from Amazon and, at times, from Facebook.
“I do political art, I get banned from Amazon for my erotic colouring books, and my facebook gets shut down because there are nipples, so it’s not without confrontation.”
She’s regularly commissioned for individual portraits, and for her intimate, often erotic works.
A willingness to confront injustice has run through Judi’s life. South African-born, as a student, Judi was often arrested as part of the anti-aparteid movement in South Africa, prior to the release of Nelson Mandela.
Today the fetish scene of her home town in Brighton, UK, feeds into her art. “As a feminist, I find the whole fetish thing very interesting territory. I absolutely believe that the people have the strength to be revolting if they wanted to. I’m all for civil disobedience.”
“I find the human body beautiful,” says Judi, “in all its complexity, intricacy and mess. The human body one of the most stunning, organic machines in existence.”
