Many of you loved artist Michael Sanderson’s reimagining of the zodiac as 12 hunky lumbersexuals, so we tracked down some more hunky stellar studs to share, this time from artist Eden Gonzalez, a cartoonist and psychologist living in Guadalajara, México.
Gonzalez calls his art style “homoerotic surrealism,” and it’s easy to see why. He’s styled his male Tom of Finland-esque models as theatricalLady Gaga-type creatures, bathed in colored light, geometic halos, and costumed-touches that bring their inner-selves to the surface.
Gonzalez says he has no academic artistic training, but he loves Japanese manga comics and lesbian graphic novelist Allison Bechdel, author of Dykes to Watch Out For, Fun Home (which was recently turned into a Broadway musical), the eponymous “Bechdel test” and a recent recipient of the MacArthur “Genius” Award.
We’re loving the Gemini twincest and the fact that Aquarius has a few dollar bills tucked into his jockstrap — Aquarius making it rain all up in the stellar-sphere.
