Big Joe’s Garage

This was for a piece of Freshmen fiction wherein an eager young lad interns at an auto garage. I actually live across the street from one and went over there to take reference photos.
Me: Yo, can I take a few pics real quick for a school project?

Hilariously Stereotypical Big Loud Boarish Italian American Guy Born & Raised in Brooklyn: YEAH? WUT SCHOOL YA GO TO?

Me: Pratt.

Hilariously Stereotypical Big Loud Boarish Italian American Guy Born & Raised in Brooklyn: OH, WHAT’S IT, SOME ARCHITECTURE SHYT?

Me: Um, yeah, somethin’ like that.

His reaction, though a perfectly normal tone for him, kinda startled the hell out of me because he was just so big and loud and projecting. It made me think for a minute how (thankfully) cutoff I am from certain cultures. The funny thing was, if he was that reactive over the lie, imagine if I’d told him the truth– that it was really for a drawing in a gay porno magazine! HEHE!

Eerily uncanny though, was that this assignment came right at a time when I was really into auto mechanics. (Refer to this post.) Remember how I mentioned the commercial for the trade school with the hot mechanic boy? Well, here he is! Yeah, I took pictures off the TV with my phone.

    missed the PERFECT opportunity to draw the lil twink being held down in that position by said big loud boorish Italian guy born and raised in Brooklyn as he pile drives him from behind…complete with having his big sexxy bear gut hanging down over the twink’s back…yum….otherwise, hot photo as usual.

    and go check out my blog dammit.

    HA! HA! HA! JC undercover! :oD That is hilarious! I love reading about your behind the scenes stories.

    The image is really wicked, and I love the stylizing of it. Very hot and very sexy!

    Hugz + Kisses,
    Patrick XOXO

    Yeah RDot, I missed that opportunity because that guy across the street is definitely NOT hot. Not even remotely. I could’ve gone into more detail and talked about his varied physical deformities (he looked like Quasimodo) but I thought I’d be nice. Yeah, this dude was definitely NOT one of the cute bears I draw. So no, not missed opportunity– dodged bullet is more like it.

    However, you’ll be pleased to know that I got to draw a chub character for my latest Freshmen illustration. Too bad I can’t post it on this blog for another 3 months though. E-mail me if ya wanna see it.
