Colossus – Gay Icon?

Colossus Tires postFINE ART PRINTS AVAILABLE HERE

It had to happen. While watching the new “Deadpool” film opening night, this image immediately struck my psyche. I was immediately reminded of famous fashion and celebrity photographer Herb Ritts and one of his famous – and famously gay – portraits of a muscled man holding tires. His body of work is impressive, and I count him among one of the photographers who truly inspired me, even though I never developed in to a studio portraitist.

This image took a few hours to render, but I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out. Let me know what you think.
