Foxy Pride

Sadly, I missed out on the infamous "FOLSOM" event here in NYC last weekend. It's a leather pride event where you can see folks acting out and feeling frisky. However, this weekend is the big gay pride parade here in NYC, and I'll try and get a gander at it (if I manage not to have a hangover). Anyways, got me thinking about a way to share my love of art and music more with my fellow foxes. So I decided to start a series of music compilations featuring some of my favorite music (and my art of course)! Each will showcase certain kinds of music I deem "foxy", and will named after a color (rainbow flag, anyone?).

May I present: "Foxy- Red". Feel the passionate, funky vibe of these tunes as you hear the bass slap and synthesizer tweak. I love listening to these songs, and especially love "mucho macho". It's truly amazing, and hope you enjoy it, too.

01 Macho- Mucho_Macho
02 Rod McKuen- Easy In
03 Asphalt Jungle- Freakin' Time Pt.1
04 Roundtree- Get on Up
05 Goody Goody - It Looks Like Love (Dim's Compiled Edit)

I would also like to take a moment to thank an incredible fellow blogger who have graciously posted this material and without whom I would have never had the pleasure of hearing these amazing tracks!! Please visit Pat Les Stache @ American Athlete as often as you can as there is no doubt there are many more foxy classics yet to come.


OH! And if you're in the Seattle, WA (USA) area on a Wednesday, please stop by and get your groove on! There is a weekly dance party there called "STUDIO" and it looks like a lot of fun!
STUDIO @ Havana (1010 E Pike St, Capitol Hill) every Wednesday Night. Check out their blog and see for yourself! :)

Happy Pride!

Foxy Fiction

I've been busy getting ready for an illustration trade show here in NYC in a couple weeks, so I haven't posted in a while. Although this show mainly caters to the more commercial market for the masses, I've tried combining some foxy flavor to the mix. So take a look at a new series I'm developing. I'm focusing on (foxy) male heroic characters from folklore and fiction. Here are the first two: Doc Savage and Hercules (ala Steve Reeves).
I have plans on showing some tone legs with Robin Hood. Others I'm considering are John Henry, Paul Bunyan, Aladdin, and Tarzan.
Do you have any suggestions or comments? Please let me know and post them here and/ or send me an email.
