Mano y Mano

A recent scene for THE ALCOHOLIC requested I draw two men hugging. For some reason, I was having a hard time conceptualizing the physics behind this platonic act and I asked my studio mates if they would pose for me. One by one, I was denied. "The Calve" [aka Mike Cavallaro] was shorter than what I wanted and Leland Purvis wasn't going to hug another man like that. Least ways, not any of the men he shares a studio with. Simon Fraser was off buying pink ponies for his daughter and, so, Tim Hamilton stepped up to the plate.

I've come to rely on Tim for my man-on-man action and I am incredibly grateful for his willingness to help me create plausible verisimilitude for the greater good of comix.

I think this video can take care of the rest of your "man to man" hugging needs. ^_^

Great reference shots. Did you ever think you'd need these, ever?

In comix, you never know what you're going to be asked to draw.

Tim is a good hugger.

Amazing that so many men would refuse a hug like that...and a shame.

Glad Tim stepped up so you could get the goods. ((HUGS))

Lee Marvin and Michael Cain look on in bemusement!

I was hoping you'd notice and mention that.

Give it a few more weeks. Then you can take some reference photos of you guys throttling each other! :-)

Dean seems to be enjoying those hugs just a little too much.

Anon posting is GAY!

Awww... now go make babies! ;)

I would LOVE to see a shot of the billboard next to your desk Dean, looks like a mesmerizing display of inspiration.

That's Simon Fraser's art table and billboard.
