Sarah Odom "Darth Spanky" Interview

Posted on April 30, 2014 by
Sarah Odom, aka Darth Spanky, is not only a model but an artist/digital artist. Proud of her work and proud to share it with the Fetfan Community.



Darth Spanky: For years I have been dabbling in all sorts of different art, my true passion being drawing. Ever since I could pick up a pencil, it has never been put down. Whatever comes to mind always ends up on paper, in photos, written on someone's forehead, or displayed on the computer screen. For every bad dream, every dark thought, or even even sometimes cheesy humor I've shared with no one or only one other person, there is a medium that can be explored to express it to others. I'm not always so great with words, so art and modeling are a little taste of my universe.



How did you get started with modeling and how long have you been in the industry?

Darth Spanky: I got started while taking a graphic design course during high school at the age of 15. I was fascinated with Photoshop and planned to use it for my drawings, but needed some photos to practice on to get past the, "What the Hell am I doing and what do all of these buttons do" stage. Whatever I did, I posted on sites like DeviantArt to get some quick feedback from a few other artist friends I had. Well, that's when a following began to form and the fan art began to come in. Can't say I wasn't flattered, but still felt I had much improving to do...so I went with it. Eventually, other photographers expressed interest in collaborating and would give me the unedited photos with which to play. Without intentions of it going anywhere (at first), modeling has become a just as big part of my life as drawing.



Your choice of genre is definitely out of the box, how did you decide or how did you discover this side of you as a model?

Darth Spanky: I was always the odd chick in the corner, but for some reason people saw me as some sort of sex symbol...or something to that effect. While others were looking up to Britney Spears, the president, or some other typical pop-culture icon, I looked up to characters like Elvira, Morticia, Catwoman, and love horror games and movies. So it wasn't much of a surprise when I started modeling as "alternative' and explored avenues of fetish and glamor which would often have a lovely photo of me manipulated into a bloody monster. To be honest, I like fucking with people's heads. It's fun.



What is your favorite category to model and why?

Darth Spanky: Horror, hands down. I love transforming myself into something that people aren't sure to feel attracted to or should probably run away from. Actually, in some cases that's more of a fetish to them.

Fetfan Magazine is a fetish fine art nude platform. Do you have any fetishes that you have modeled or personally find interesting?

Darth Spanky: Nothing really that extreme. Some blood play here and there, domination, sadism, tight-lacing corsets, and bondage. I find some of the odd fetishes to be interesting and actually plan to make some of them happen. I had a guy politely request that I do a shoot where I was just chewing gum and blowing bubbles. Someone else asked to watch me eat. It's odd, but harmless.



Nudes, fine art nudes, how do you feel about the concept and how do you prepare for this type of shoot?

Darth Spanky: I have no qualms. I show up, switch to my robe, discuss our direction, and go with it. There's no shame in the human body. It can be very beautiful.



Throughout your modeling I'm sure you have been to many different places, which has been your favorite and what kind of project were you working on?

Darth Spanky: Oh, now that's a difficult question. Well, I'll pick one of my favorites. It was a shoot with Scott Davis back in 2009. I was inspired by a manga/anime called Petshop of Horrors and wanted to do a shoot based on their story of Medusa. I put together a costume, did my make up, and was blind-folded for most of the shoot. The costume catered to the fetish part of me. It was an intense day. We were at it for a good 8 to 10 hours. I didn't leave my bedroom for days afterward. I just worked on them and obsessed on this story. It was a rare day and one of the few shoots with an actual idea instead of doing whatever comes to mind.



Is there anyone who has inspired your work?

Darth Spanky: Oh so many...One in particular is a former model known as Malice. I've been following her work for years. To my eyes, her beauty is absolute perfection. I also was inspired by certain similarities in personality we shared and enjoy the fact that she's only mean if you deserve it. (People often deserve it.) Drawing and art-wise, I've always been really into the Silent Hill games. They are so horrific, disturbing, and grotesque that they are beautiful. Even just the soundtracks are appealing. I actually listen to them in my car. These games are hypnotic. I'd give my left arm to create something so...effectively mesmerizing.



Who is your favorite artist in the industry and why?

Darth Spanky: Stjepan Šejić is my favorite comic book artist. His is wonderfully detailed and yet still retains a bit of a sketchy feel. I love his style and his story of going from being a lifeguard and fruit merchant to the longest running artist for Witchblade. It's a rare story of someone with serious skill who actually got to where they belong.



When at a photoshoot, what do you love most about the experience and what do you find challenging as a model?

Darth Spanky: What I love most is that moment right after a photographer gets a really good shot and stops to show me in the middle of the shoot. It's almost surreal to see it. That was me just a few seconds ago! The most challenging part is getting myself ready and out the door to go to the shoot. Once I'm there, everything is great, but everything leading up to it is not very enjoyable. I'm a rather nervous driver. The idea of other people in fast moving hunks of metal bothers me.



Of all your work, which is your favorite?

Darth Spanky: Whatever my newest piece is. I try to improve with everything that I do. There are some drawings that are more skillful than others and plenty that I have thrown out, thus, I don't bother with favorites. They are each a part of me.

How would you best describe yourself using just 3 words?

Darth Spanky: Delightfully Insane Catwoman



What do you think your strongest feature is in modeling?

Darth Spanky: I'd have to say it's my eyes. They tend to be my most noticeable feature followed by my lips, then curvacious figure.



At the end of the day when all is done what are you most proud of?

Darth Spanky: My growth over the years. I'm so very young and yet am not like other people my age at all. It shows in my work and how I interact with others. Though there is still much growing and learning to do, I'm happy to look back and appreciate what I have learned so far. The next decade will be interesting.
