An All of Man Exclusive
On special nights at the gay men's erotic workshop, there would be two live models to draw inspiration from. While they actually held this pose for 20 minutes, I chose to leave the model at left unfinished, so as to suggest the memory of first love, and how powerful it is. The gray charcoal paper has a canvas texture which softens the line and suggests the rough male kiss, like a woolen blanket.
