Todd James Yield to Temptation Book The Standard Hotel New York City

Todd James REAS ‘Yield to Temptation’ Book Release Event

A week after New York’s trendy Standard Hotel caught heat for the public visibility of their rooftop restrooms, Todd James REAS painted a posterior on the glass window of the hotel’s gift shop.

Last night, past Mass Appeal cover star Todd James celebrated the release of his new book, Yield to Temptation (Picturebox, Inc) in the tight ground floor space, surrounded by the unapologetic painting of the butt-naked female and a pussy cat.

The recurring images of the female form, along with pirates, and soldiers are signatures of James. His career spans decades and his work has taken him from painting in the NYC subway system to galleries around the world. He was on hand at the Meatpacking District hotspot signing books of his recent collection of sketch drawings, now on sale at The Standard’s shop and on Amazon. See photos from the recent event below.
