Though he’s probably known most widely for his performances in professional SadoMasochistic
videos as a particularly abusive top, I have learned to enjoy the short
amateur videos he posts on Twitter and other sites. They’re just
short, simple, little videos of him beating off and displaying his
fairly sizable tool, but they show him in (at least what I and a few
others find) a more appealing light where his arrogance, narcissism and
rather considerable physical beauty has a chance to shine.

Among the various contemporary Queer artists of my
generation who paint, I am particularly fond of the work done by Richard
Hawkins; and I especially like this group of paintings he did a couple
of years ago. His palette is pretty bright and the brushwork fairly
loose and it all looks fresh and unmediated. It also comes off as not
unskilled. The titles are smart and funny too.
The short essays and the images I post to this blog tend to reflect my present interests and work. Occasionally I will present my own work in drawing or painting, but more often what one finds there are the sources for that work.
