May / June 2015 - So cool to see this article about Charles Leslie, founder of Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art in Next Magazine !  Without his foresight & generosity to struggling artists, there would be no Gay Museum in NYC. He's being honored in a fun Event there next week (in which I'll have a Drawing in a Paddle8 Auction), come/support the Museum if you can.  (Click the photo to be linked to the article in Next Magazine).

April 2015 - Great news - noted author Perry Brass was able to use my painting "Andy, Seated" as the cover image of his just-being-released new book, "The Manly Pursuit of Desire and Love" - Yay !!  Perry describes the book as the deepest he's ever written, with concepts he's been working on all his life.

While the actual publication date is not until June, Brass will be signing pre-publication copies, available for sale at his table at the Rainbow Book Fair (that's ), a really fun Event in it's 7th year at the Holiday Inn on West 57th Street this Sat. April 18 from noon to 6PM.  You can also click on the image above and be linked to order a pre-publication copy on Amazon.  Check it out !!
