Way-Back Photos

I've been going through some old negatives, looking for something for a buyer, and I ran across some old photos. This is me with two of my models, Shawn and Andrew, as well as solo shots of them. Taken in the late 1990's (98? 99?). Shawn was the model who I was supposed to work with that day. He brought his friend Andrew along, because Andrew wanted to give it a shot as well. We had a great photo shoot that day. They posed solo and together. I worked with them again, and even worked with Andrew's brother and cousin.


Photos of Shawn and Andrew are available at

Seeking Everyday Guys for Photo Shoot

I saw this morning that deviantArt is having a photo portrait contest. I had someone in mind, but I think it'll be a "no". In fairness, it would be difficult to arrange the shoot anyway. To my male friends, I will put this to you. I want to do what I do best in photography, which is show off regular guys / everyday guys as being sexy. This means, not the guys with a gym build, and maybe not a 20-something year old either. Some of my better work has been of the guys who don't fit into what the popular idea of "beefcake" is, meaning I don't care about your belly, or that you're too skinny, or too hairy, or naturally don't have chest hair, etc... While I may or may not use a "beefcake" photo to enter (I will choose what I think is the best shot), I would expect you to be shirtless in the shoot. I'll even try to find some pay for the shoot. Hit me up with any questions. DM me if interested. I'd rather have volunteers for this than ask around and get told "no".

Around The World In 60 Seconds

I'm a big fan of #NasDaily, and today I got Nas' book, Around The World In 60 Seconds! The book looks great, and I can't wait to start reading it.

As I said, I'm a fan. I really enjoy Nas' videos. It's not just that he's traveling around the world and giving us some interesting stories, he's also showing a diverse selection of people, countries, and situations to highlight. Not everything is happiness and light, though I love that he tends to stick to the positive side of things. I appreciate the diversity he shows. We need more diversity and love in our lives.

I preordered the book, and got a video from Nas!

If you want a copy, the book is out now. I got mine from Amazon.

Take Care everyone! Have a Groovy Week!

Inktober part 2

I'll open this with the fact that I'm behind on my Inktober drawings. I got sick last weekend - flu-like symptoms, and I've spent this past week recovering. I've been exhausted almost every day, and I think I only drew one card. The two cards below are what I've done since the last post. >sigh< I worked on a card yesterday, but once it was inked, I thought it turned out too badly. Gonna redraw that today, and get back on track. I hate getting sick, but it does happen and you just have to take care of yourself first.

Take it easy, Everyone! Have a Groovy Week!

It's Inktober, and I've taken up the challenge. I've been approaching it as a sketch card a day. I've also been taking the super-hero (mostly) approach, though I've drawn one of my non-super characters, and even Adam Richman. 

Here are the cards I've created so far. All are available for those who are interested.

Gay Pride Market

I went to the Pride Market today, after the family lunch. It was fine. I took a couple of turns around. Got tested (I'm negative). Got some freebies (Batwoman poster, tote bag from a bank). I signed a few petitions. Bought some postcards from an artist. Except for the guy at the HIV test, and the artist, I could have just been invisible. I often feel that while I am part of the LGBTQ+ community, I am also apart from it. On the way home, I stopped at Good Dough and bought some dougnuts! Yum! I had the Jags doughnut already (the teal one) - Yummy!

Green Zoom Green

Got my new shirt, and it looks great! You can get one at 

I'm really pleased with how this shirt came out. It's very well made, and comfortable to wear! I know I'm not a model, but I hope this gives you an idea of how the shirt looks in the real world, on a real person (and not the online thumbnail these sites create). 
Any buyers for Target or Old Navy or any other stores out there looking for some cool shirt designs, please drop me a line. 

To anyone who buys this shirt, or any of my shirts, I'd love to see a pic of you in the shirt. If you're willing to share, please drop one in the comments. Thanks!

Take Care!
