Dude. It’s a “Friends Friday” look at the work at yet another of my fav gay artists!


Hey, guys… it’s Rick. I thought this week I’d get back to featuring the art of some of my favorite gay artists. This week, I’m showcasing Alessio Slonimsky. Here’s a little background on him:
“Alessio Slonimsky is a Spanish painter, with a specialty in gay illustrations. His portfolio consists of pornographic illustrations and comics called ‘Fetuccini Carbonara’, that have been published in Spanish, Portuguese and even Russian. He has also made a series of erotic drawings of naked men set against the background of 19th century industrialisation. Declined in several media, his work has appeared on tea services, wallpapers and T-shirts. He has worked with acclaimed writer of gay comics Dale Lazarov, on the 2012 wordless graphic novel ‘Good sports’. He has also contributed to the comic book ‘Deimos: Tales of the Taro Demon’ with writer Patrick Fillion.”
And here’s what Alessio says about his work:
“I’m a european illustrator who has been drawing for as long as I can remember. I was born by the Mediterranean sea but moved to the UK and USA to study art. I got my master’s degree in illustration (MFA) in New York.
I started out working in advertising agencies doing graphic design and illustration. One day I decided to make the leap into freelancing.
When I was a kid I loved comic books such as Tintin, Asterix and some superheros.
I was always intrigued and fascinated by the process of telling stories with pictures and I love all the stages of it. I enjoy making my imaginary world come to live developing characters, making up places and situations and creating atmospheres.
I’m inspired by daily life and try to absorb all kinds of ideas from what surrounds me.
My first gay erotic comic “Fetuccini Carbonara” is part of a series of stories called “Alessio in Wonderland”. It depicts the adventures of Alessio, a guy who keeps changing jobs regularly, meeting new people and living life to the fullest.”
I think Alessio’s work is AMAZING… so much so that next week I’m doing another post of his art. Next week, the post will feature somewhat more “artistic,” or “fantasy” themes that I think you’ll like. I hope you guys are still enjoying my gay art posts 🙂
