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.
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. :)

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.

Morning Warm-up!

I've been drawing a lot of vehicles in my latest project. I don't draw vehicles well. Even thinking of them as geometric shapes and simplifying details I still hate to, and suck at, drawing cars. The best way out of a car-drawing induced funk is to draw nearly naked men. Working out the straights and curves of a well-posed fashion model is ever so much more satisfying!

Drink and Draw!

I sketched this after a recent Best Chest contest at Woody's (Toronto). It's from memory, of course, and represents the final three contestants. I actually mostly wanted to draw the tattooed guy on the right. He didn't win, but I loved his entire look. I believe the winner was the guy on the left. He was much cuter in person (it's possible I was still a little drunk-ish when I sketched this ;)

Finally! An update!

When I started my blog I always vowed never to apologize for sporadic posting.'s been an awfully long time since I updated. Sorry.
I've got a Tumblr going over at Tumblr and that's been my main source of manly Beefcakery. Sometimes I sketch the guys I re-Tumblr and then post them over there when I should be posting here. So, here I am back at Blogger. I've got a backlog so I'll do my best to keep this updated. But also check out Tumblr if you want to see drawings and the guys that inspire me to draw (and...other stuff).

Back to Front!

Whew! I love drawing comics but I'm telling can be tiring. Not tiring like rescuing people from a burning building or construction work (mmm...firemen and construction workers). It's not like a noble pursuit working for the greater good. It's just, for me anyway, a lot of late nights and trying not to repeat myself on page layout, panel composition and figure posing.
And nothing points out an artist's inability to draw a good likeness better than drawing a roomful of 1930s Hollywood stars and not even being able to get a recognizable Katherine Hepburn. Oof!

In between figuring out what makes Jimmy Stewart look like Jimmy Stewart I sketch muscled men to boost my morale :)

Scruff Sketches!

Two more beefy guys from my folder of "Inspiration". More like a separate hard drive at this point. I figure I'd better get to drawing those guys or else why did  I save their images? There is always something to be learned from a pair of perfect pecs.

Hide and Secord!

Just a quick and dirty post to welcome in the NEW YEAR! Happy New Year everyone! I've been up to my rocket-pack in Rocketeer for the past few months. I love getting to draw Cliff and Betty again (this time I think I'm doing a much better job on both). Here's a little sneak peek at Cliff.

The announcement at Comics Alliance can still be seen here.
