Some drawings in no particular order.

Hey, I haven't posted in awhile, so here's just some of the things I've done in the past month or so. I'm trying to do a lot of commissions for cheap, to get some money, and also because it's kind of fun, like a sketchbook assignment, if sketchbook assignments were about guys macking on each other. So I'm having a lot of fun with them.

A commission for Jason Todd and Bruce Wayne.

Here's one commission I did of Red Robin and Superboy, who I've been wanting to draw for awhile. It might be strange to say, but I like the way Robin's butt came out, and his chest. Allison, have you seen 90's Superboy? His outfit was so strange, but I love it. I want to draw it.

So I bought the movie "Death In Venice," because I think it might be aesthetically my favorite movie, not even just because of the boy Tadzio, but the turn of the century clothes/architecture, and the colors of the film are stunning, and have changed the way I draw. And I can't stop drawing Tadzio. (Adam: Rufus Wainwright did a song about him called "Grey Gardens" which captures my feelings for him quite well).

The cover of my copy of The Picture of Dorian Gray is totally stupid, and the picture looks nothing like Dorian, so I thought I would make my own. I don't like when covers show Dorian's face, since I think the reader should imagine it on their own, and they so often have a masculine face with dark hair or facial hair, which is totally not how he was described at all. Whoever chose those pictures for the cover were NOT homosexual, I'm sure of that.

Um... I started watching Pokemon again. It is still amazing (but I am shocked at how little animation there is. Like 90% of the show is still frames).


I think this is my trying to get my circus obsession out, but it's still there.

Another picture for my fashion class. I did this after watching a shit ton of Betty Boop.

Genderbent Sherlock Holmes and John Watson

This is a character from the show Doctor Who. I was kind if trying different effects. I thin it looks kind of interesting, and I want to explore more with stuff besides flat colors on photoshop.

I did this after watching Death in Venice. I just want to draw dirty, turn of the century, beach erotica all the time.

Bucky, for my pin up sidekick thing. I was in a queer art show with my sidekick pin up drawings, so I added this one. I also have a Ron Weasley and Luigi that maybe I'll post later.

Again, trying to do something besides just flat colors. This one I did after seeing 101 Dalmations. That movie is actually very gorgeous. I totally crush on Roger, and the backgrounds are amazing. (Also I crush on Pongo, but whatever).

A headshot for my fashion class. It was inspired by Grace Jones.

Another fashion headshot.

Bowl and Photos

Yo YO YO! Adam here, got some new stuff for you. First up, this bowl that I made (Madelin and I took a glass-blowing lesson, more pictures of that on Facebook). Turned out pretty awesome.

Also I have some cool panorama photographs for you! I've been using this awesome program on my iphone called Photosynth, and it allows you to take pictures of the whole 360 degrees of your environment, and will piece them together to recreate it. I think the coolest part about it though is that for each one it also converts the whole thing to a single picture, which is what you're seeing. The first one is from this spot at Bard where someone built this platform up in the trees.

This one is one of my favorites, it's from a bike trail in Eugene, OR. The 3D version of this is also cool. Check it out here:

This one is in the same place, but this time I tried taking the pictures while walking around and seeing what would happen. It's actually kind of hard to do anything too messed up, cause you kind of have to trick the program since it was designed to make it as accurate as possible.

These last two, I tried doing something more abstract, and I really like how they turned out. For the first one I printed up a black and white patter I thought was cool and just held it up at every angle and took pictures. For the second one, I took a picture of a small part of this painting I'm working on, printed it up, and did the same.
