Blackbeard!

Drew this guy for another Daddy Next Door poster for Toronto dj Dwayne Minard.

If you're in the city check out his DND night April 5th at Wayla bar. Look him up on the Facebook.

Swiped!

Recently it came to my attention that a guy named Edward Wihnan had been stealing my artwork. In fact he'd pretty much used every drawing I'd ever posted on my blog. In some cases he'd used the same image multiple times. He'd cut and pasted parts of my drawings together to form his "new" images. He put different heads on my drawings, reversed, re-scaled figures and called it all his own.
I found a Deviant art page, a Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter and a RedBubble page (where he sold shirts with my re-purposed art as well as a few other swiped artists). They're all gone now. He's removed everything -- or found ways to hide himself from my searches (blocking me on Facebook, for example). He goes by the name "Uncle Deadward" on most of those sites.

Friends of mine have gone through this before. They've been swiped and the thief has been caught, shamed and disappears, usually without a word from the thief. Twice I wrote to Edward Wihnan -- first to warn him that I was about to post what I'd learned on Facebook and second that I had snagged all of "his" images. I also warned him that I'd written to RedBubble and that if any money was made from his stolen work I'd be expecting payment.

Above is my drawing and Edward's (completely unretouched) version. I love that he painted himself with "whore". It should read "thief" because he gives whores a bad name. Incidentally, that face is how he portrays himself in his diary comics.
Below is a screen-cap from his Deviant art page explaining how he came up with his idea for the Spider-Man butt drawing. In a later comment he mentioned how he could "draw butts all day". My butts. He's drawing MY butts!

So I was pretty enraged the day I discovered all of this -- put together the compilations you see here. There are many more images. Many, many more. But these were the ones where I knew the source material immediately. Some aren't 100% figured out. Like the Spartan image, for example. I knew the face of the last guy but not the body.

I apologize for not updating my blog all that much lately. Don't think that discovering I've been swiped will deter from posting. I'll be keeping an eye out for the return of Edward "Uncle Deadward" Wihnan. As I say, he's vanished from the net. But he'll be back. Oh, he also claims to be a photographer but I suspect that, like his "art", is a lie.











best,

No Title.

My poor neglected blog. Where have I been? What took me away? Who why and how? Many things have kept me busy, pre-occupied and neglectful. Mostly I just haven't been drawing beefcake lately. I've had so much work to get done that all my doodle time is spent working on development stuff for the project(s) I'm drawing.

I've more or less caught up on that work -- the third issue of Rocketeer Spirit which is drawn by me is in stores now :)
You can read a review of the issue by clicking this link

I'll do my best to update more often. Because of the schedule I'm on it'll most likely be warm up doodles from my Tumblr page.

Tumblr Doodle

This here is a bit of Beefcake I saw on Tumblr and had to sketch out. I apologize sincerely for the lack of updates. I've been very busy with work and life stuff. I'll try to sketch and scan more as we fall into autumn (why is it already so cold?).
Today's post is brought to you by the letter B (for Beefcake, Bicep, and Buff) and the Model Julian Navarro

Colby Keller in a Box!


Colby Keller is coming to TORONTO! (that's where I live, in case I haven't mentioned that fact in the past week:) He's bringing his spanking skills to the Fit Primpin party at the Great Hall. I'll be there. Look for the nerdy guy shyly sketching in the corner.

About this drawing - it's sketched from an awesome series of photos by Gabe Ayala. Colby posed in hot short-longjohns and various sexiness in an empty tv cupboard. Those are some of my favourite Colby photos. What a great life drawing model he'd make. So much character and a great body :)

I'm very much looking forward to finally meeting Colby! Expect more drawings after this weekend.
OH, and HAPPY PRIDE!
It's Toronto Pride this weekend.

I got your back.

Sketch based on a photo. I've got to start writing down a reference for the photo because I don't remember who the model is. I'm pretty sure it's on my Tumblr though.
Such a nice bum. :)

Muskles!

I don't recall if these were based on any photos (as the past few posts have been). My feeling is that I was just in the mood to doodle muscles.

:)
