Joe Zaso (2017)
Once this actor posed for live drawing– great body, super hairy, nice big ball bag, and gorgeous Meg Foster (Evil-Lyn) eyes!
Gabriel’s Butt (2016)
Franko’s Butt (2016)
Getting the hang of digital drawing from life. It’s kinda awesome to learn that some skills transfer over!
Mitch on the Table (2016)
Here’s the result of an awesome new life drawing group I’ve been attending! You’ll be seeing a lot of guys on this table!
So I’m loving the iPad Pro’s stylus and this great drawing app, Procreate! Brought it into life drawing group and am really happy with the result! This looks like the beginning of a beautiful friendship!

Akeml’s Rose (2015)
Akmel Undressing (2013)
So this model’s name is Mark but one of the guys who directs the drawing group likes to give the models crazy names so we knew this model as “Van-Go,” because of the resemblance to Vincent Van Gogh.
Van-Go as you can see is a tall, hung, ginger, super friendly and a damn good model. He was pretty eager and stayed erect pretty much all night.
After the fourth pose, he was stretching and kinda jokingly stretched his legs to display his butthole. When asked if he could hold that, he said “Sure! This is comfortable!” So that became pose #5 and begat a series of ano-centric poses, lol.
More than any other model, I’ve heard artists call this guy their favorite. I feel like he only poses once every blue moon but when he does, it’s an event! He gives everyone great drawings!

This scruffy guy is a dancer which always makes for an excellent art model. The framed piece is in the permanent collection at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay Art. At this show it was next to some works by big deal artists– we’re talking history book names! I was very proud to be among them!
There exists a photo of this young Russian artist, posing nude, holding a framed painting, a nude self-portrait. Not surprising he’d choose himself as a subject, given his unique beauty. His alabaster skin and pale blue eyes contrast sharply with his jet black hair which coats most of his tall lithe body. Slender from head to toe, excluding his penis which was about as thick as his wrists.
He was reclined and pleasuring himself for the final 20 minute pose but hadn’t quite finished at the end. We gave him a few minutes, but it was late and people were getting antsy, so we kinda clapped and thanked him for posing.
HE COMPLETELY IGNORED US AND JUST KEPT GOING.
Eventually he ended up splashing ball juice all over. We clapped again, very happy we waited.
Another model who also dances, this pierced, tatted-up dude was in excellent shape and able to hold fun and difficult poses for a rather long time! A lot of the other artists were caught up in the tattoos but I was more into capturing his musculature and anatomy and porn-starish genetalia. I knew I could fake the tattoo in Photoshop later- lol.
Including this here because some of my more fine-arty patrons appreciate that I can design patterns. If you look, you’ll see subtle textile design influence all over this site.
Here’s a beautiful big-eyed hung young twink with a delicious looking ass.
This dude who brought his martial arts uniform to pose in. He was a good model, really good at keeping still. I may have felt his chi.
Nice hard wang too.
Make way for this hot hairy Italian stallion and my first time drawing a ball stretcher! Oh- and that’s a jock strap in his mouth.
Everyone always asks.
The one directly above is a redo from 2015 to reflect how this guy looks now.
He’s jaw-droppingly attractive in the face and has the pumped-up muscular bod of a monster, all adorably compacted into this 5’5″ frame.
Always suspected our life drawing group used escorts but this was the session that confirmed it. I was like, “Hey, isn’t that a hooker from the back of Next magazine?” I never forget a face. He takes out a box in NYC’s weekly fag rag advertising sensual bodywork with 9 inches. It’s not quite nine but definitely, abnormally, beautifully, delectably THICK!
Small guy with like the tightest muscles you’ve ever seen. It made for some really buff he-man drawings, almost forcefully combined with his boyish stature. He-Boy? He had a very big bush, really veiny arms and a hairy little ass that was like a shelf.
Cute German dude with a winning smile who seemed genuinely tickled at the idea of modeling. You couldn’t wipe that grin off his face- except for in this, the odd Dracula pose.→
Purely coincidental, and something no one really noticed till after everyone was done (because his fat twitching uncut sausage was so distracting.) But the combination of pose, expression, jacket and the fact that that drape was bright red all led to very vampiric drawings of that pose.
So I kinda consider this set to be somewhat of a failure in some respects. Mainly, I show it to demonstrate that I like to experiment.
That said, if you look past what literally looks like a constant tornado of dirt and glass, you may see an accurate depiction of sexy young Bennie with his big beautiful pouty lips and his big beautiful turgid member.
Contemplative Bennie (2011)
Redid the best one of this series in marker.
For cutie Chris’s body, imagine a black version of one of those ancient Roman god statues (with much much bigger testicles.) Rumor was that he was straight, so for the first half of the session, the artists’ demeanors could be easily summed up with the words “drooling stupor.” But after Chris came around and mingled during the break, we all got to see how sweet and friendly he was.

The mood of the night dramatically shifted to more jovial, but his posing was so focused and serious, it was difficult to capture that cheerful vibe.
Even though I went back into some of these drawings, this is definitely a session I wish I could do over and get some shading in there because the way light bounced off those rock hard jet black glistening muscles was fucking amazing.
Caleb DLJ (2015)
Here, I turn him into my OC, Caleb Chaos!
With his boyish good lucks, friendly personality and mammoth sized penis, Mike always turns out a crowd. But it’s usually a disgruntled bunch as Mike continually proves to be one of the hardest models to draw.
It’s still always a fun time though since he’s got a great sense of humor and is good to draw with props and costumes.
He’s short, which makes that girthy dick look even bigger. And of course, I get the dick right.
Yup, for that pose on the right, he totally sat on one dildo and sucked on another for 20 whole minutes. A real champ, this guy. ♥
Rare that we get a model who looks like this but it was definitely welcome! This one is a must-see for you muscle-daddy lovers!
Football Bum (2011)
Distinctly remember not being attracted to him when I drew these. The long snakey dick was fun and interesting but not as mouth-watering as some of the others I’ve drawn in person. He is oobjectively an attractive man, just not my type.
So let’s fast forward to a weeks later when scanned this set of drawings and suddenly got really turned on by them! I may have went into a prehensile penis fantasy.
Victor Steele (2010)
Tried experimenting with oil pastels for the 3 separate times I drew this model / porn actor.
He’s fun to draw because he’s got the muscle tone of a strapping, virile young man but at the same time, he is also quite slender and dare I say, even graceful! Then there’s that elegant swan-like neck and calm, composed demeanor that just puts you at ease.
Oh, and there’s also that porn star cock.
I used to see him a lot at my neighborhood bar and gogo-ing at different bars all over the city. Once, after being caught staring, I came over and said, “You are really hot but every time I see you, all I see is my crayon cartoon version of you.” He laughed.
No man likes to be called elegant or graceful– I wish there more manly words to describe what I mean. Rest assured, Victor Steele seems really masculine. He is a former Marine and served for a long time. Once he said that, his perfect posture made so much more sense. U.S. military men always have amazing posture. For the pose above, he stood at attention for 20 minutes.
Worked up one of these for the Dirty Little Drawings show. Even though I tured him into a rando, I feel like it still looks like him!
He dumbfounded us all by posing in his uniform. I asked him, “Um… is that even legal… posing in your uniform?” He replied in the most serious tone ever, “Why wouldn’t it be? It’s my uniform.” I love that answer.
The session was booked solid within an hour of the e-mail announcement. Chad’s unit is actually more impressive in person than in porn.
A considerable degree of effort is required to keep that monster hard so Chad was wildly pulling on it for most of the poses. A little masturbating during the pose is no big deal, particularly if the model can do it subtly and not break the pose. But because Chad’s dick is so massive, the amount his arm moves to jerk it off totally changes the pose.
A few of us wanted to let him know that keeping hard isn’t as important as keeping still. But at the same time, there were people there who wanted him to be constantly playing with it. The emphasis on their pieces was more about the eroticism of the moment rather than the accuracy of the pose. It’s a tough balance to maintain in this type of art.
And even though no one asks, I always feel the need to mention my referencing 80’s glamour graphic design. I thought that would unconsciously appeal to the older crowd that actually buys art.
Not sure if this is just a thing in NYC but most of the Latino strippers here are straight. (Well, “straight.” lol) Such was the case with Jonny, but don’t hold that against him– anyone who stage names himself after a video game character is a-OK in my book– lol.
So yea, Jonny is a tall, hunky erotic dancer with beautiful lips, nice meaty tits, and a big floppy uncut piece of manflesh between his legs.
Wanted to work largescale this session so I brought some bignormous paper. But it’s just not in my nature to draw so huge. So instead, I incorporated more than one pose onto a page.
Blonde with big blue eyes, a smooth muscular frame, boyish good looks and this innocent, almost dopey grin, Riley is a popular model. But we’ve all realized he’s anything but innocent.
It’s always something with this guy– backstage scandals, hell on-stage scandals, but my favorite is his offer to allow each artist to touch him for an extra small fee.
He’s posed quite a number of times and every session there seems to be a new outrageous story. I’ve only drawn him twice, but whether it’s his antics or his big fat ass, he always brings out a huge crowd.
Riley has, quite simply, the largest ass I’ve ever seen on a man. It’s very plump and sticks out quite far. He also has big meaty thighs which kind-of balance out the butt, making me think he does soccer or something. But yea, red beans and rice didn’t miss him. At all.
The sesh where two of my favorite models met up and put on a spectacular show. Was too distracted to get much else down on paper.
This is one of my favorite stories about this drawing group. The pic we got showed a thin, smooth, young guy lying coyly on a bed, draped in white linens that only covered a small section of his flacid uncut peepee. So, I packed up my pink and baby blue construction paper and geared up for a night of barely legal twink-themed fun.
I don’t know what the deal was but if you put that picture next to the guy I drew that night, you would not think they were he same dude. Either that pic was several years outdated or Luc just recently hit puberty.
Granted, he was still thin and smooth– but his face… was just way more… grown-up than in that pic. He had a big ol’ man chin! Totally threw my twink mindset off.
And yeah, humongous dong. Like huge. You guys know me, I’m not normally taken aback by big cocks. But it surprised me cuz in that pic, it was just sooo tiny!
Oh and this prop to the right is not made up. During set-up between poses, one of the artists says jokingly to the director, “So when are you gonna break out the teddy bear?” The director replies, “Should I? I did bring one…” I drew someone cuddling a teddy bear while jerking off.
In the end, the workshop was full of disturbing drawings of little boys, some guys claiming they’re going to have to shred them. Anthony didn’t want to take his home but was able to sell them all on the spot!
JC: Look at this crazy paper!
Anthony: Ooh, where’d you get that?
JC: They were gonna throw it away at work. Want a piece?
Anthony: You won’t be able to draw on that.
JC: Shut up, we’ll see.
Of course, Anthony was right, and the paper was not great to draw on. But let’s spin it this way: the paper does kind-of compliment the model; he was a kind-of effiminate. I love a hot muscular swishy guy!
Striking guy indeed, you of course notice his insane Blanka-do first, then his pretty lips and eyes, or if you’re like me, his hefty bulge! We’d come to find out that bulge was from his huge nads! And I’d just like to point out that “fuk yea” happened. Yea, he was a talker. A very hot session!
Great body– amazing bum. Nah he didn’t actually piss– I made that up. That particular image will always have the distinction of what got me kicked off MySpace.
Corey & Jim Embrace (2011)
First time drawing a couple at the erotic life drawing group so I really had no idea what was in store. Although poses like what was drawn in the beginning of the session are kinda what I expected and as I’d come to find out, kinda the norm for duos. So, yunno, somber poses where the guys are embracing.
But when you add Corey Corey into the mix, throw expectations out the window. It’s easy to see why Corey is a popular dude all over the internets. He’s super tall, like 6’6″, very outgoing and has no qualms showing off his big ol’ floppy monster. I was not at all prepared for what came after the “softer” poses. Corey fucked this dude’s face like they were at home. The guy’s drool got everywhere!
It was too hot a scene for many but I managed to get some drawings. What always strikes me about these though, especially with the ones that I’ve redone, is the stark contrast in tone. These lovey-dovey hugging ones just feel so different from the raunch-tastic slobbering face-fucking ones.
Sam, the adorable heavy-nutted Isreali pocket gay I’ve had the pleasure of drawing on 3 separate occasions. This set of drawings is from the first time. The other two times, he posed with Doug Repetti and I turned them into my Big Guy/ Little Guy series. In that series, Sam muscles are de-emphasized to further play up their size difference. The truth, as you can see from this set, is that Sam is about as muscular as Doug R…. just a foot shorter.
It was a full house that night because the pic that went out a week earlier showed a butch-looking muscular Martin about 10 years younger and 100 pounds lighter. People were mad but once they got over it, a lot of them produces some amazing work. In the end, a very welcome departure from the usual type of model we draw.
Tim Dax (2011)
One of my few googleable models, Tim Dax is a former bodybuilder, turned actor, turned porn star with awesome superhero tatts to match his all-star personality! Super friendly and just totally offered up the story of how and why he got his tattoos on the art model stage like a monologue or something.
Kinda scared of Prince Albert piercings but it was fun to draw something new down there. And for a first timer, Tony was not shy at all!
But the surprise bonus was when former model Brandon came out and pose with. Brandon was really into Tony which really caused a shift in the energy of the evening. As they got more hot for each other, holding still became less an issue for them. It’s difficult to draw two figures in perpetual motion so a lot of the other artists gave up. But I’m the man and was able to produce something I’m proud of. I think I captured a sense of movement.
Fitting to wrap up the page with the set that consistently gets great reaactions from everyone. Though it’s from a long time ago, and only the second erotic life drawing workshop I ever attended, it still holds up. Gonzalo’s muscular frame with those meaty bulging legs and thick uncut dick had all the artists swooning.
In person, he’s a lot nicer than these images would suggest. His beautiful sable locks cover his eyes, a feature that usually indicates a sense of friendliness, especially in my work. So we lose that but gain this quiet mysterious ruggedness that creates this perfect unique specimen of raw masculinity that a lot of youze seem to respond to.
