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!
