Luc the Tulip!

Something different today. A few years ago I met Luc Latulippe through the Internet. Luc is an amazingly talented illustrator who's been working in the industry for years and years and years ;) Seriously, I've seen his work everywhere and I always love it. You've seen his work too, you just didn't know it! Luc is everywhere!

But besides being a fantastic artist he's also a slice of delicious Beefcake! Looking at some pictures of him that I saw online, I couldn't believe that I hadn't yet drawn him. Or at least tried to. He's quite yummy. SO just for kicks I doodled up a Superhero alter-ego for Latulippe, giving him a bit of leather gear and some fancy schmancy metal bracelets. I see The Tulip as a gentle giant of a Hero gifted with incredible strength and an unfailing need to right wrongs.

After finishing this drawing I noticed how like a He-Man toy my cartoonier Man-atomy is. I quite like the extreme proportions but in reality The Tulip would have trouble staying upright! Good thing this is just a cartoon world!

best,
j.

Thanks again J! This is one of the coolest things ever, and I'm truly honoured you immortalized me this way! I'll endeavour to beef up further to match the physique you gave me. ;)

YAY! Luc! I love this photo, and Im beginning to love J.Bone since he has now drawn two of my favorite people (Luc & Josh!)

This would have made a GREAT He-Man toy, right next to Beast-Man and Fisto!!!

Luc - I really don't know why it's taken me so long to draw you, Luc. You're GAW-jus! Just the right kind of mug that's challenging to capture...gotta cartoon it but still make it look like you! I will draw you more. Oh, yes. I will.

Seocracy - Any friend of a friend...
Truly, Luc and Josh are incredible fellas and I'm thrilled to know them, let alone draw them.

C.Edwards - I still can't believe that Fisto even existed. Clearly someone at Mattel got away with the biggest gag! For heaven's sake he even had a big ol' gay moustache! Amazing.

best,

There's something to be said for being "mighty like a rose", but it's blown away when you're "tough like a tulip"! I've been a fan of Luc's for a long time and this is a terrific cartoon of him. Fun, but as sexy as sweaty, black leather. The padlocked chain collar is incredibly hot even if it does probably mean someone has him under lock and key. I've seen a few shots of Luc on the net, but it would be great to see more. Where? As usual, nice job Bone!

P.S.: I've tried to e-mail you about the Week of Loincloths, but when I use the hotmail address on your profile I keep getting a message that my message was not delivered. Any thoughts???

Musclsvg - I'm not sure why my e-mail won't work for you. I just sent myself a test e-mail from my profile and it worked.

As to where to find Luc on the 'net. Frankly I've come across him a few times just on blogs run by guys who find pictures on the net and then post 'em. When you're as good lookin' as Luc you end up on all the "Hot guy" blogs/sites.

Incidentally, I just finished a loincloth pic of Josh which I think you're gonna dig. I dig it! (if I'm allowed to dig my own stuff).
