Well… Hello Sailor! #sailorsaturday 💦
.
“The navy is a wonderfully constructed organisation consisting of young men who are given an entire education in how to make themselves appear desirable.” Jean Genet, French novelist, playwright, poet, essayist, & political activist (1910-1986)
.
The Gays LOVE their Seamen! *giggle 😏
& accordingly, Queer Art is awash with images of Sailors, far too many to present in one post (above is just a drop in the ocean), so I’ve decided to make it a weekly theme here on Instagram & over on my Tumblr ‘ART+Masculinity’ (link in bio)...
Welcome to Sailor Saturday!
.
So Ships Ahoy! you Landlubbers & head on over to my Tumblr for my maiden post; ‘Sailors by Tom of Finland!’ There’s 5 decades worth of hunky seafaring Tom’s Men to enjoy. Now that’s a helluva lot of Seamen! *giggle 😉
.

Artist Discovery: Ivan Bubentcov! 💦
.
If Etienne & Tom of Finland had a love child, it would be the brilliantly talented Ivan Bubentcov. His illustrations hark back to the stylings of these two great Masters, not only in their appearance but also in the fantasy scenarios depicting Men ecstatically having sex with other Men freely &, more importantly, without shame. Tom of Finland once said that he wanted his ‘dirty little drawings’, “to show gay men being happy & positive about who they were… [sexually, they] were going to be proud & happy men!”
Ivan Bubentcov continues Tom & Etienne’s legacy but builds on their work, making it his own stylistically (eg his dramatic use of perspective) & with great humour & freshness. Check him out! 🤙🏻
.
To see the un-cropped NSFW versions of the illustrations above, go to my Tumblr ‘Art+Masculinity’ (link in bio) or you could just follow Ivan’s Tumblr:

Brett’s ‘Paradise Passage’ comic strip, based on the people & events of Melbourne’s Queer Scene, appeared in the local LGBTI paper, MCV, from ‘05 to ‘07. At the time, I worked at Melb’s Queer Bookshop, Hares & Hyenas, & my TOON’d counterpart appeared in Paradise Passage as the Bunnies & Bears (B&B) bookseller.

Inspired by B&B’s Paradise Passage TOON, the character’s headphones were a nod to my side hobby of creating dance mixes under the name ‘Crisco Disco’ which I shared with friends & this led to the...

Even elegant ladies from noble families enjoyed a good shafting or a mouthful of dick from an anonymous cock in a wall. The two ladies pictured [above] became quite famous for touring Europe in search of the continent’s best glory holes. Lady Nelly Bellinger (left) and Lady Constance Gobbington (right) sampled a grand total of 3,787 glory holes in 17 countries before being set upon and murdered by Sicilian pirates.”

LOVE Everything About This! 🙌🏻
<- Swipe!
Came across this brilliant comic strip this morning with its insightful message (made square for Insta). In the process I discovered a awesome young Gay Artist, Damian Alexander, who uses his Art to share his experiences as a young gay teenager/man growing up in today’s world; not only clever & well-told but also raw & honest. Great stuff! A young Queer voice to watch! 🤙🏻

Artist Spotlight: Jeff Miller
.
The seemingly infinite ways Artists depict the Male form astounds me but some stand out for their fresh & unique styles & these not only astound but surprise; Jeff Miller’s sketches of Nude Men do just this. His loose & chunky style, graphic yet flowing, are strong & masculine yet also at times fragile & intimate, especially when he draws two men together: Simple & Brilliant! 🤙🏻

Gay Men by Female Artists 💋
.
“Erotic depictions of gay men let women enjoy sexual fantasies free of a patriarchal power imbalance, and without participating in a culture of sexually objectifying women.”, Joanna Russ, ‘By Women For Women, With Love’, 1985
.
I asked a girlfriend the other day why she loved watching gay porn & she said, “It’s simple… Double the dicks!” Couldn’t argue with that!
.
Through showcasing these 3 incredibly talented Female Artists I explore why women enjoy & get off on seeing 2 blokes together. As you can see their Artwork is incredibly varied so I created 3 seperate Tumblr posts to showcase each woman’s work & included an article that further looks into this theme.
.

Slash can also be a verb; to slash is to create a slash fanwork or to interpret the chemistry between the characters in the source text as homoerotic. Slash more commonly refers to male/male pairings.“ Source: Fanlore.org

Artist Spotlight: Edgar Murillo
It’s wonderful to inspire people & I find it even more so when it’s their creativity. I’ve been a huge fan of Edgar’s @artedgar Artwork for some time, I even showcased his awesome illustrations of bearded men on my Tumblr last year, July 2016, well before joining Insta & connecting with him on this platform. So I am chuffed & beyond honoured to be the inspiration for one of his latest pieces of Art, the first illustration above. & what a birthday gift, thank you, Ed! 😘
.
On top of that I wish to further show my gratitude & appreciation to Edgar. There are actually 2 versions of the illustration I inspired. I’ve included both on my Tumblr & if you follow him - which everybody must - you can see it there too.
.
I’m a firm believer in respecting an Artist’s vision, although I may inspire something that gives me no control over the finished piece of Art nor the right to ask the Artist to change it - I didn’t. But I did write Edgar to let him know that although I loved the piece - it’s so Bad Ass! - I didn’t feel I could re-share it & explained why: Given what had just occurred in Las Vegas I felt it may upset some of my friends, especially a dear friend who was there just before the shooting & has struggled in its aftermath. Edgar to his credit simple responded, no problem, he’d send me an edited version; the one above - Huge props, Ed!
.
