I won the ‘Tom of Finland Makeover’ Illustration Competition

I recently won a competition to give a well known character a Tom of Finland makeover. Tom of Finland, (his nom de plume) was so influential in the gay community for drawing really beautiful men. His pencil work is outstanding.

The competition was to celebrate the release of the Tom of Finland movie.

I chose to draw Wolverine for the competition, which felt so much like I was cheating, as is’t he perfect as a classic Leather Daddy? I tried to work in some of Tom’s style with my own, sticking to pencils and trying to keep my pencil marks as smooth as possible. Overall I’m quite pleased with how he turned out.
