Virgin Mary Sheds Bloody Tears


Thousands went on a pilgrimage to Sandusky, OH, to see the statue of the Virgin Mary weeping bloody tears only to get there and realize it was just ancient vampire Akasha's little sister Skipper that had fed too much.

Hair


This sketch was all about the lines in the hair. Sometimes I just get kind of in a daze drawing hair, so many separate strands and stuff...it's a little hypnotic.

Hustler: Prone


With his modeling jobs drying up, Raffaele decided to go with Rentboy.com to hawk his wares. $300 in/$500 out. Will travel. No attitude, versatile and discreet. Drug free. (mostly)...

Not Allison, But...


Okay, so one of my favorite models on cycle 12 of America's Next Top Model was Allison Harvard. She's very stunning and she's an artist, which of course makes her a standout for me.

I was going through my drawings to repost some that had mysteriously disappeared from this blog and I ran across this one that I had done some time ago...it kind of resembles Allison a little, I think...

Just a little...

So this drawing is officially renamed Allison.

Russell Martin - Esque



Here we have my take on Dodgers catcher Russell Martin. This drawing certainly doesn't capture his handsomeness, but I figured with the "L.A." symbol and the "55" and the beard, there are enough points to where someone might say, "Oh, yeah, that's supposed to be Russ!"

Tank is my nickname for him. I don't know where it came from, I just like calling him Tank Martin. He seems sturdy. I almost did a Freudian slip and typed "studly"...which he is also...

Saint Lucy


The dear, virginal Lucy decided against marrying a pagan and used her dowry to help the poor. The spurned fiancee got revenge by dropping the C-bomb label on her: Christian. Under Diocletian's rule, that was not a good thing. I'm pretty sure he also had Sebastian knocked off. So that's two saints that Diocletian is responsible for.

Apparently there are two wildly different schools of thought on how Lucy lost her eyes. One is that she was being pursued by a suitor who loved her eyes so she cut them out and sent them to him so that he would leave her the "F" alone. !!!!!! That is rejection taken to orgasmic levels.

The other is that her eyes were gouged out before her execution, (which made my whole body cringe just thinking about it, and I'll probably get freaked taking my contacts out later) but God later granted her an even more beautiful set of eyes. Probably so when people have visions of Saint Lucy, it wouldn't be a horrific visage with bloody, empty eye sockets.

Thanks to Kurt for pointing me towards this!

Diesel Washington - Esque


One of my top favorite personalities is Diesel Washington. So I'm looking at his blog the other day and he's taken several snaps as a kind of angel character and I swear to Jeebus if he didn't look a little vulnerable and angelic. This is Diesel we're talking about here!

I really love those shots, so I decided to do a take-off on one of the photos. Archangel Diesel Washington...with my normal disclaimer that, no, it really doesn't look anything like him.

Original photos ARE HERE.
