Do not be fooled!!!

This is not a Halloween costume. This is a naked man wrapped in my ribbon. Why did I wrap a naked man in my ribbon ( I feel that is a stupid question) I think you should ask yourself why wouldn't I wrap a naked man in my ribbon....AND... why isn't this a Halloween costume?? If it was I would call it "I'm going to dress you up in my love" all over, all over, your body.

From your head down to your toes....

Oh my Jesus I have a lot to talk about.


First and foremost, another mummy picture, this model who shall remain nameless was easy and wonderful to work with. What I can tell you about him is that he is 6'6" (he was huge! In every way you're thinking ;) also wrapping the mummy is as much fun as unwrapping the mummy.




Lisle Taaje sent me copy of his book "tricks" (thank you for the kind and unexpected gift)

anyway the concept of the book is very simple, it's polaroids of the guys he has slept with for the last 10 or so years (simple and effective) the refreshing change is that these are not models, their real guys who are about to or already have been FU@%ED! I highly recommend this book, follow the link to blurb.com where you can order it

Last but not least, I have an art show at Swank modern design.com in Palm Springs opening October 14- November 13, 2011 follow the link for more information

As the evening progresses the mummy undresses!!

Classic. Classic. Classic! This is the perfect example of a traditional Halloween costume (turned sexy) and it's not your fault if the bandages didn't want to stay on. (Yes... he should have been wearing underwear) although... I am fairly certain that Egyptian mummies did not wear underwear either, this is a case of historical accuracy! (At its best) even if you don't go full Monty, this costume offers you the opportunity to show what you want and hide what you don't want to show.

Stay tuned for more mummy pictures and other eXposing Halloween costumes. Open to suggestions... got an idea??? share it with me info@ethanmaxx.com

Naked Halloween.....

I decided to set a project for myself for the month of October. I have invited several models over for a photo shoot, with the intent of coming up with clever and sexy Halloween costumes!!! Not all will be original ( I imagine there'll be a lot of sexy naked vampires ) anyway, this project is a great way for young Hollywood actors who wished to remain anonymous, yet have a burning exhibitionist streak to be photographed without anybody knowing it's them.

Feel free to send any suggestions for I am open to ideas..... enjoy!

Sneaking back in...

I was going to post about the underwear that I have been working on, and.... I noticed it's been a while since I've blogged... okay, I think about it everyday (not blogging). I had some kind of mental block stopping me. No idea why??? I do know that I recently suffered" something" that is hard for me to deal with (I am intentionally being vague) this "incident" has left me a little off or broken in the head and heart. Up until now my approach to fix this has been... Time heals all wounds, and I do believe time will. However in the gray unresolved area in which I have been living, I have been developing bad habits, excluding myself from life and having fights (for no reason )with people who are near and dear to me. I am actively working to correct my life. Please be patient with me.

in the meantime have a look at the underwear I'm trying to produce...

Studio renovation...

I needed to have a little bit of electrical work done in my studio, (so I did) then I thought... I should finish insulating (so I did) then I thought... I should dry wall OMG!! I hate drywalling!!! Not to mention I'm doing all of this in a  unair-conditioned studio during a heat wave!! I'm in hell.

A gloomy day with gloomy news

I'm going to have to look at both sides for this posting, first the bad and then... the positive?




As some of you know I was accepted to the 2011 Seattle erotic Art fair. ( I'm told it's the largest erotic art fair in the world) the thing I like most about this affair is its intention to show sex in a positive light. Instead of attending I shipped four pieces of original artwork, unfortunately I did not sell any of them. (Bummer!!) I will say... This is the first art fair I have ever attended where I did not sell any art.



Now a look at the positive side. A representative at the art fair told me that my artwork " generate a lot of interest" that's good. Thousands of people who've never seen my work before, have now been exposed to me. AND out of the over 2,500 artists who applied only 200 were accepted and I was one of them.

Procast-turbating

Please tell me I'm not alone in this, I find when I have a lot to get done and I don't know where to start... I... masturbate (what a funny word) I would be curious to know the root origin of that... anyway, it frustrates me when I waste time ( touching myself) and not getting work done!!! I guess I was just wondering if anybody else has this problem?

My new custom-designed frames

Here's a look at the frames I designed to display my artwork. I wanted something that would make my work stand out and at the same time work in a lot of different environments.

I photographed it on to extreme backgrounds, to show that color and texture work with the frame and not against the artwork.

Here's a close-up of the corner detail...


 close-up of the back detail and how it's hung




I'll be offering the new frame on my online store and website in the next week, I have a lot of new products coming up that I'm very excited about, so... stay tuned...

A fear of painting....

 Not necessarily a fear.. or a how-to,.. But the journey of painting itself...(for me),. Obviously you should read these pictures from left to right as if you're reading a book. Commitment.I start with no commitment. I'm using a pre-primed gray canvas, white paint lets me configure my shapes.violet paint lets me determine them. Orange, turquoise, and dark green allow me to find my shadows... just like a happy tree ( any Bob Ross fans???)

Next I start defining lines,this is the time to be bold, as you can see I've outlined the penis.... 

at this point I have a pretty good idea of where I'm going... it's all about clean lines and expression, also I felt that the canvas was empty.. to me this is a dark painting, a sensual place... alone but not wanting to be.So adding red to his background to seem like the perfect accent. 


Wait no!... I hate it!!!!!! white out everything! Don't be afraid to start over (in paintings and in life) if you did it once... you can do it again, probably better. However I was too close to this painting, what I didn't realize at the time was I connected his belly to his elbow ( making him fat)

I go back in with deep purple some blacks... but I've lost interest so I white out again. But, by this time I lost interest... I have never finished this painting it's rolled up in my pile of used canveas...

Another recycled cover code article.






I think this is about three years old, and I did it long before craigslist got "sketchy" and by sketchy I mean people dying.

is going on here....

Yes, I'm disappointed!!

But if I had a nickel for every person who wanted a pillow of them, and a nickel for the people I have done pillows of..... long story short. ( OWN all your images) I used an outside source.... (even though I'm a little mad, I know this source is good.) Anyway... I used his images, to make a pillow. NOW the model... who did not sign a release.... no longer wishes to be associated with me. (.........) you know???.... I'm okay with that! If I had a nickel for every time I made a BAD decision... I would owe him forgiveness. Being gay is personal. (period) my job is not to interrupt the flow of day-to-day, but to... make gay okay.

"However" I have three (3) ..... personally signed "rejected" ... (never to be printed again) and I mean never!!...... If I never see this pillow again. I'll be okay with that!! ......(3) pillows left in stock. Only eight made... three left, of the three.... signed with the title "rejected"...... ( I'm a little excited) e-mail me if interested..... info@ethanmaxx.com
