J. Michael McCracken (Stpeteartisan) Feature!

Watercolour paintings are difficult by definition. One failed stroke of a brush can totally destroy the entire piece, as it is difficult to correct. This is one of the reasons, I highly commend J Michael McCracken.

Originally from E. Tennessee, now located in St Petersburg, J has always been drawing and painting and studied many art courses. His big break started when he sold two pieces on EBay on September 24 2004. He won first place of the International World Aids Day Contest on Deviantart.

His works are approximately five hours or more in total and the display of detail shows this. The anatomy is flawless, the colours are bright, and the tones itself are expertly done.

J has not only captured the solidarity of the male form but a fragile beauty characteristic too.

He donates a portion of proceeds from the sale of originals, and all of his print sales on deviantART to his local HIV charity.

Fantastic work that needs to be highly praised!

You can see more of his artworks on his deviantart gallery.

Welcome all

Greetings all to my male art resource blog

This is dedicated to all the artists and photographers who focus or partially focus on the male form, erotic and non-erotic. I will feature an artist weekly plus reviews of books/comics that I've bought and any other musings that I would like to share.

I'm always searching for new websites and artists, so if you see any that should be linked on this blog, please let me know.

However, there are some rules for links.

1. The works have to be based on the male form (obviously). It doesn't have to be nudity or pornographic. A guy can still look good with clothes on.

2. If the artist/photographer does a multi-genre for example, landscape and male art. The male works has to be in a
separate gallery/webpage.

3. I won't submit links that is
primarily used for photographic porn. For example, COLT, pridesites, menonthenet, badpuppy, linkmeallover etc. Drawn porn is ok.

That's it, simple.

If anyone has questions, feel free to comment or e-mail (address in profile)
