Erotic Figure Drawing - Devon

Its good practice to draw ALL body types but being a lover of super heroes, (and being a gay man with eyes) its a lil extra fun when I get to draw a male model with a stacked bod, and Devon's heroic frame definitely fit the bill. Matter of fact he looked even more stacked this second time around. ( I first drew Devon last summer) It doesn't hurt that he's a really nice guy and great at holding more complicated poses without being fidgety.

Erotic Figure Drawing - Gabriel

I was pretty excited to draw Gabriel this past Wednesday considering the recent rave review from a fellow artist. The session was a success and you could tell he was having just as much fun posing as the artists drawing. He had a great smile, although I didn't get to capture it here, extremely personable, and easy on the eyes. After exchanging instagrams I realized I had drawn Gabriel a few times already but didn't recognize him thanks to some added muscle and a shaved head. lol The weight looks good on him though, and in all the right places as you can see here ;)

Chilly Will



This past weekend I got snowed in, which I kind've like. It enhances the coziness of home and nudges you to enjoy all the things indoors that we (sometimes) forget about while being out and about on a consistent basis. I enjoyed some tea, cocoa, and a few extended hours of Final Fantasy XIV but my most fruitful takeaway from the weekend has to be my new original character (or OC) Chilly Will! His creation is inspired by a few things including that "Polar Bear" group that likes to go out nude in the winter, Will Smith and his coat from the Gettin Jiggy Wit It video, my vague memory of the cartoon character with a similar name, and of course, all the snow we got. Will is quite the exhibitionist who has a fondness for adventure and penguins, and showing off regardless of weather conditions. 


Best of 2015


Man, I get so busy updating my Tumblr, Instagram, and other social media that I forget to update here. Just to cover bases I wanted to share my best of 2015 post and say thank you to everyone who's been supportive thus far. No matter it be a friend, fan, patron, model, you're all appreciated and I can't wait to include more of you in my work in this new year.

"Hooking-Up" w/ Class Comics for The Hook-Ups Meaty

With all the other social media platforms I'm maintaining, I sometimes forget to update the home base, including my latest collab with Class Comics. This go round featured myself as well as several other erotic artists illustrating or "Hooking-Up" characters from all over the Class Comics Universe.


As always I had fun with this, even more so because I usually do solo pinups. It also gave me an excuse to draw something really dirty lol. Below is a preview of my illustration "Cigar Buddies" featuring Emil & Trip (the UNCENSORED version is featured in VOL.1) You can pick up BOTH volumes packed w/ work from 70 artists HERE !!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BELASCO!!!



                  

I haven't spoken much about who inspires me but among those that do Belasco is certainly in the top rung, so when Gene Lightfoot asked me to contribute a piece for his birthday I was more than Happy! I remember when I first saw his work YEARS ago. I scoured the Internet to find as much work of his as possible. I'd go further but this post isn't about me, and of course he needs no introduction so I just wanted to say, thanks and Happy Birthday to one of the best in the biz! Hope you enjoy my tribute to you!

Erotic Figure Drawing - Donnie

  

  

 

I met Donnie at my last art show. He was a nice friendly guy, cheerful, pleasant, not full of himself, and it didn't hurt that he was pretty easy on the eyes. Considering that and the fact that I always had work or a prior engagement the last few times he modeled, I was looking forward to finally adding him to my sketchbook. Lets just say I wasn't disappointed.

As far as the drawings themselves, I think my enthusiasm shows and Im particularly happy with how the more loose sketches came out. I have a habit of being a bit tight with my renderings so this was a good change of pace. I think I'll try it more often!

Post Art Show Update (Dirty Little Drawings)


So I've realized I've been updating all over social media but I haven't updated here on the home page. Picking up where I last left off at the end of March, the Dirty Little Drawings show was quite a success! Over 50 artists participated so you can imagine the turnout of viewers and supporters. There's so many highlights from that weekend but to name a few, I was able to hang out with fellow artist and fashion illustration legend, Robert W. Richards & Charles Leslie, one of the founders of the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay & Lesbian Art. I sold 10 of 12 pieces and made so many connections with other artists/models. It was quite the experience and my favorite show I've been in to date. Every year I do one they get bigger and better so stay tuned, there's more to come!

March News - Commissions/Art Show/Google Porn Nonsense

So a few things, both good & not so good, have happened since I've last posted here. Im a positive person so I'm going to lead with the positive. Here we go!

1. ANOTHER SATISFIED CUSTOMER

 My last post from Feb. shared a preview of a commission I was working on which I have since completed! My inner graphic designer surfaced when working on these and I love how clean, bright and streamlined they came out...so did my client! Larger separate versions on my TUMBLR. Speaking of, commission slots have re-opened, feel free to contact me now as production will pick back up sometime next month. Why the wait? See number 2!




2. NEW ART SHOW

I'll be in the "DIRTY LITTLE DRAWINGS" exhibition, hosted by the Leslie Lohman Museum of Gay & Lesbian Art. March 27-29. I've been working on lots of new drawings this month hence me having to hold off on commissions til next. I'll be posting previews throughout the month and an official invite on Monday! If you're in the NYC area, come by and say hello!

3. GOOGLE'S PORN POLICY FLIP-FLOP

As many of us know by now, Google further tightened their restrictions on adult content and then quickly changed their minds by the following week. (Update posted below)

"Dear Blogger User,

This week, you received an email telling you about some changes we were making to the Blogger Content Policy. In that email, we announced a change to Blogger's porn policy stating that blogs that distributed sexually explicit images or graphic nudity would be made private.

We've received lots of feedback about making a policy change that impacts longstanding blogs and the negative impact on individuals who post sexually explicit content to express their identities.

We appreciate the feedback. Instead of making this change, we will be maintaining our existing policies (http://www.blogger.com/content.g).

What this means for your blog:
Commercial porn will continue to be prohibited.
If you have pornographic or sexually explicit content on your blog, you must turn on the adult content setting (https://support.google.com/blogger/answer/86944?hl=en) so a warning will show.

If you don't have sexually explicit content on your blog and you're following the rest of the Blogger Content Policy (http://www.blogger.com/content.g), you don't need to make any changes to your blog."


I appreciate the reversal on such tight censorship but honestly all the back & forth combined with their history of deleting adult blogs randomly leaves me feeling uneasy about remaining here. For now I'll stay & continue to update but I'll be focusing more on my tumblr, instagram & twitter. You can follow all three from the top right hand corner. I'll also be creating a Facebook fan page so stay tuned for that as well. If anyone has any suggestions on other platforms to call home, drop me a line.
