Me too - I love that combination. Even better if the guy has cropped hair - I never like it too floppy. Hope you post some more pis soon!
I definitely enjoyed your Tarzan series. He has always been one of my favorite heroes, and one of my favorite subjects for drawings and stories of torture and abuse. Ever think of creating a complete storyline for Tarzan, or any of your other amazingly sexy men? Now that you and Jotto are doing more work together, it would be great to see the two of you do a comic of some kind.
Your drawings of Tarzan are fantastic! It's like finding a rich vein of ore. Your concept of the apeman is very close to Burroughs'. Unfittered by a mate as he was in a number of ERB's novels. Tarzan is a creature of immense sexuality. If written today I'm sure he be depicted as roaming the jungles naked. Satisfying his primal urges and matching the sexual aggression of those that would target him as an object of their lust. And, unconcerned with gender since he was reared in the wild. Animals don't have the such biases. Burroughs' himself described the apeman clad in the briefest of g-strings. A concession he probably had to make to the post Victorian mores of his time. Then the movies saddled the jungle lord with domestication and leather shorts when Weissmuller's early films were deemed too provocative and revealing by The Hayes Office. Tarzan has seemed to fall out of favor lately with the advent of cinema superheroes. I'm sure it's because no one has the gutts to really address the eroticism of his character. That's why your illustrations are so terrific. They give us the great white ape as he should be. A magnificent specimen at ease in the naked skin that covers his well muscled physique and unashamed by a powerful and potent sexuality.
Yep, he's a hottie! Love the muscle-work, as always.
