  4. Summary

    These two pictures are my first ever printed works - and printed works in what still counts as an underground publication, the SHareCon zine. That is why, although I work digitally, I wanted to do something special as an homage to the traditional medium and the underground spirit: both pictures are based on pencil drawings by the grand old man of gay erotic art, Tom of Finland. Tom, alias Touko Laaksonen (1920-1991), was a Finnish underground artist who became an international gay celebrity after his US exhibitions in the late 1970s. If you want to learn more about Tom, The Guardian has a nice article on how Tom helped create the modern gay aesthetic. You can read (and see) even more on Tom of Finland Foundation's homepage (the gallery requires Flash player but is worth the trouble - very NSFW, mind you).

    Summary

    Starsky considered the offer. He thought of the look he’d seen on Hutch’s face when they’d been together with Terry. A beautiful kind of aching he hadn’t been able to define. Now that it no longer mattered, and alcohol had lowered the few natural inhibitions he possessed, he felt driven to know.

    “Were you jealous of me ‘n Terry?”
