Brilliant gay illustrator
, best known for Kake
, the prototypical leather boy
, a fellow with a face (somewhat loosely) based on Clark Gable
and Burt Reynolds
, with a much more muscular body and enormous penis
. Usually clad all in black leather
, the plot of every Kake story usually ends up with him being stroked, sucked, or in the rear end of an appreciative male...policemen
are his specialty. Other non-Kake works have been favorably compared to that of Thomas Hart Benton
, and show gays as being sailors, truckers, bikers, and other "manly" types.
Once thought of as simply a cheap hack, Tom's work has been shown at the Guggenheim. Check it out if you're gay, straight, female, or just like to laugh!
