“HOLY HOMO COMICS, DUDE!!!”
Antebellum is proud to present ToonFetish,
an exhibition of Gay erotic comic & illustrated art.
Over the past 25 years, the medium of illustrative storytelling
has exploded far beyond the realm of “disposable kiddie entertainment”.
Whether mainstream or alternative, comics are now a respected art
form that features an endless array of illustration styles and diverse
subject matter including adult fantasy, erotic & fetish themes.
40 years after pioneer Tom of Finland blazed the trail with his
“dirty drawings”, a whole new generation of artists
carry gay erotic illustration into the new millennium. These artists
who could, and in many cases do, work in the mainstream, have chosen
to use their formidable talents to create images and stories that
express themselves erotically. Unabashed, unapologetic and definitely
“UN-PC”, they're putting their imaginations on paper
for all to enjoy. From single image pinups, to fantasy and science
fiction adventures to everyday erotic tales.
“2D FANTASY FUEL!”
Gay erotic comics not only reflect existing fetishes and types
in real life, but now influence and add to the gallery of arousing
archetypes. Sexy Manga Boys, Nasty Skatepunks, Slutty Spacestuds,
Superhung Superheroes and “curiously hot” Otherworldly
Creatures have seeped into the fantasies of many a comic reader.
“Toons” have now become a fetish unto themselves.
“THIS IS A JOB FOR…"
As creator of “G-MAN” and “CHELSEA BOYS”
books, internationally renown artist Glen Hanson leads the pack
in this field. Together with legendary fetish and fashion photographer
Rick Castro, they have put together TOONFETISH!, a show that will

Drubskin, from San Diego, CA, Dronio, from Bologna, Italy, Justin
