on the drawing board: wilderness

My wilderness man is shaping up. I've only got a little body hair and water drops on so far, but much more to come.

Who would you like to...Strand on Mars?

It's a just for fun satirical virtual reality game blog in the vain of The Apprentice or I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here. However the 'contestants' here are among the most distasteful, obnoxious, overexposed or just rub you the wrong way personalities around. Okay, so that's not very different from actual reality shows.

Each week, you the visitor, vote for the people you wish to leave stranded on Mars. At the end of the week the person with the least votes against them gets a seat on the ship back to Earth. But there aren't enough seats to go around. A new round begins each week until you the voters decide who to... Strand on Mars

Series one castaways include: Ann Coulter, Joe Jonas, Dr. Phil McGraw, Glenn Beck, Rachel Ray, Levi Johnston, Miley Cyrus, Michael Vick, Reese Witherspoon and Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

on the drawing board: misty eyed

While I still have much work to do on the figure, I wanted to delve into the background a little. The misty mountains and lake are something new for me. I wanted to figure out the best technique and see how they were going to look.

South Park inspires Brian Boitano's Food Network Show?

"What Would Brian Boitano Do" song from South Park.

"What Would Brian Boitano Make" debuts on the FoodNetwork August 23.

I wonder if he'll use his fire breath to flambé?

on the drawing board: once more into the deep

Whether it's a shower, a pool, or seaside, water is a prevalent component of many of my pieces. I am just starting another such piece. This time my inspirational forces have taken me to a serene lake, one that reminds me of the Adirondacks near where I grew up.

2010 Calendar Availble for Pre-Orders

So are you ready for 12 months of hot men pressed up against your wall?

I received the hard copy proof for my 2010 calendar early this morning and everything looks great! Mark says it's my best looking calendar yet. I am pretty proud of it since I had full creative control.

I guess this year, the companies that put out gay male calendars are sticking to just photography. If you visit the Bruno Gmünder or 10 Percent sites and look at what they have for 2010 that's all you see. I think some of the photography work is quite beautiful but I am disappointed they aren't offering their usual variety that is provided by the imaginative hands of artists as well.

So it makes me doubly proud to not break my tradition, and offer the 5th annual calendar of my art. I hope you'll enjoy it.

I will be signing and numbering the first 250 for you early bird shoppers and you can pre order them on my website. Also if you order 2 or more (for gifts or such) you'll receive a discount.

on the drawing board:

With the face better defined and refined I have moved on to the surrounding elements. Because there are numerous light sources in this scene I can add highlights in various colors coming from various angles.

on the drawing board: looking up

Yay, I'm finally back home after a nice mini vacation and with a temporary fix to my computer woes. I tried to post but there is only so much you can do with a cellphone.

Anyway, here is an early stage pic of what's currently on my drawing board. I wanted to do something with a little humor and of course a little sexy. Look out for the release of this latest work sometime next week.
