Illustration by Carlo for Joues Cramoisies (1935).

Carlo (born c. 1910, †) was a French spanking artist and illustrator of many spanking and BDSM novels in the 1930s. He always worked in black and white.

Most of Carlo's art is woman spanking art (F/F, M/F and /F). The ladies in Carlo's art almost always wear Stiletto heels, typical of BDSM/shoe fetishism, and also often tightlaced corsets and/or stockings. Carlo's style was a precursor to that of John Willie.

Carlo also contributed to the magazine Humour under the name Charléno.


Carlo illustrated the following works:
