Oh look, an big ugly block of text! I've been drawing all my life. I can't remember when I started but it was early. I've always been intrigued and inspired by animation and comics. My earliest influences were Charles Shultz's Peanuts and later, X-Men comic books. It didn't take very long for me to start drawing erotic images. Even before junior high, I was drawing nude Disney men in my sketchbooks.
I studied Illustration at Pratt Institute, got a Bachelor's in Communications Design in 2002 and am currently working out of Brooklyn. I hand draw and ink almost everything I do and can never be found without a trusty mechanical pencil or micron handy. I like to experiment with a variety of different media for color but for the most part, I use Photoshop.
Doing business as Clydeworld Comics, I'm working on a number of different projects of my own creation, but currently, ANTI-HEROES, my gay erotic comic series, is my primary line of focus. I am also currently available for freelance illustration jobs and commissions.

Hey gang– wanted to share an awesome piece of fan art by my buddy Digital Mirage. The two of us did come art trades way back when I was mega into Y!Gallery– hehe. You can find a few of his older pieces at the beginning (bottom of the page) of my Friends Gallery.
But since then, Digital Mirage has really stepped up his game and developed a new, tighter style! Take a look at his gallery on Y. And thanks again for the lovely Tai art, Dig! I love the detail in this piece– all the tight linework and awesomely rendered shadows. And look at that chunky basket! Yummy!
Dig whipped up a colored version! Freakin beautiful!!
So I keep forgetting to post this but I’ve had these guys collecting dust in my cabinets of swag for months now. Back in March, I participated in the Black Party Expo and made a bunch of new BulgyBuds for the event; Leather versions of my OC’s and more renditions of popular characters that queers love.
Full list including the original buddies is HERE.
Order at Shop.Anti-Heroes.net .
Hey bubbies. My good pal K3rry did this a little while ago and somehow it was skipped in my “to post” list. This was much to my chagrin as it is definitely one of my favorite guest art pieces to date! It’s a reference to my little flash game, Boot Camp! I really love how the one alien’s big heavy nuts are sitting atop poor Tai’s head! Damn those Grays! Go play Boot Camp now and show them who’s boss! And don’t forget to check out Kerry’s blog K-Slash! Really hot stuff over there!
My first new web game in years, Boot Camp is a Steamy Shooter Striptease Spectacle of awse sauce! Caleb, Tai and Zeke will train you, the fledgling Anti-Hero, in the ways of sexy space combat!
I’ve worked pretty hard on this but the real credit goes to fellow artist / web developer, Necro. We met at an art show a little while back, and immediately hit it off, both of us sharing a passion for art, gaming and CAPCOM! (LOL)
Boot Camp is available in the Members Gallery section of Anti-Heroes.net. I’m dying to know what you guys think of it, so after you play a few rounds, be sure to let me know by posting here!
(And feel free to spread the word by posting this commercial anywhere you want!)

These guys are actually made from Shrinky Dinks if you can believe it! Kudos to you if you remember what Shrinky Dinks are. If you don’t suffice to say I had tons of fun making them.
And they seemed to be a big hit at the Black Party Expo, which I just participated in yesterday. I agonized over whether to do only my characters or versions of better known ones. I ended up doing both, and as it turned out, both sold equally!
So yeah, if you like what you see, gwan and order some on Shop.Anti-Heroes.net. I’m doing packs of 3, 5 or 10 for you greedy collectors out there.
First up is my good buddy Anthony Gonzales. He never fails to surprise me with his creativity and ingenuity. For my compleanos, he did this awesome drawing of the hot, hung, horny, hard-bodied Anti-Heroes and somehow turned the original into a jigsaw puzzle! Let me just tell you, this was BY FAR the funnest puzzle I’ve ever done. I keep taking it apart and putting it back together again!
Here’s another Anti-Heroes piece Anth did for me. Anthony always poses my characters in such a way that is very evocative of their personalities. More so than anyone who draws these guys (including me,) Anthony really emphasizes their differences in their stances. I love it! I only have a cellphone photo of this one so far. Working on getting the original! (wink wink)
And finally, here’s one Anth did a little while back featuring the ladies of my super-mutant team, the Bomb Squad (featured in Anti-Heroes #3.) I am supposed to be digitally coloring this one… but time and laziness are getting in the way of that task. Still, the inks and line-art really hold up, as they always do with Antony’s stuff. Thanks a million, buddy!
Next up, my other good pal, Jezza does the Anti-Heroes in his own vibrant style. I love how even though Jezza’s style is on the cartoony side, he manages to cram all this subtle detail into his work. For instance, all 3 Anti-Heroes have different faces. I really appreciate the weapon design on Caleb. And is it just me, or do Jezza’s pieces always draw your eye in directly to the cocks? What is it– the placement? Whatever it is, nice job, as always bro! Jezza also recently interviewed me over at his blog so I suggest you dudes read that to find out how perv-minded I really am.
This next one is by Shawnti Therrien, an artist I met at a con a few moths ago. I was scouting artists to commission to draw the Anti-Heroes, but was embarrassed to ask any straight guys. Luckily, I spotted her booth adorned with posters of scantily clad male characters. I immediately thought, “Oh fuk yes, this person isn’t going to have a problem drawing sexiness!” Shawnti was a pleasure to meet and I love her rendition of Tai. This pencil rendering is something I really appreciate, being that I have absolutely no patience for it, myself. LOL
Last but not least is an action-packed painting of Caleb by Bordin Marsinkul. Another artist I met at the con, Bordin was actually sketching at a booth where they were selling markers. His wonderfully gritty Street Fighter pieces were up, so that’s what got me to stop but then I actually saw him work… which was incred. He needed tons of space and went at the paper like a martial artist would a punching bag. He was very animated, which seems to really show through in his work. I love the exuberance and excitement that goes into this piece.
Thanks to all these great artists for inspiring me! Now, I’m gonna go draw and subconsciously rip you all off, hahaha. j/k
In the meantime, here is a sneak peek at all the giant projects I’m working on:
Anti-Heroes: Boot Camp (online video game)
This is kind of a big deal for me… revealing my payloads before they’re completed. I usually like surprising you guys. So yeah, appreciate this– LOL! Which project are you dudes most looking forward to?
Finally, here’s something I’ve always wanted someone to do: a CG rendering of my characters! My partner is a CG artist ad he was working on it a while back– but abandoned it much to my dismay. However, I knew it was only a matter of time before someone sent me one. There are a lot of gay erotica artists working in Poser, and Thomas gives his own spin on my boys using this program. Favorite part of this one: Zeke’s eyes. They’re like… pools!
Anti-Heroes vs. the Parasites (If you don’t know the Parasites, do yourself a favor and pick up Anti-Heroes #3!)
I really love this one of Paxton. I wish you kids could see the hardcopy of this. The color is so vibrant and it’s all traditional media. Frikkin’ awse. Anthony is my hero.
