Ganymede the Starling

Hey guys!!!

We are starting the original art of 2018 with a piece that looks like it fell out of 1978!  The starling stud Ganymede by Lastmanouthere could swing his microphone in my face any time.....yowza...He is one fine boy.  I wonder if in the years long after I am gone, if people will debate this particular pieces actual date of creation?  It's so rare to see something that truly looks like a legitimate product of that great era for fantasy art. I have my suspicions that Lastmanouthere has some very personal connections to this character.  Okay enough of my gushing, after you take all this in, please enjoy his back story!!!

Ganymede, the Starling
By Lastmanouthere Jan 2018.

Under the watchful eye of the Citadel’s Inner Sanctum, all inhabitants enjoy a very limited and controlled life. Firm believers in that widely available technology was responsible for the wars that led to the near destruction of their world, the Inner Sanctum prohibited, among other things, personal electronic displays. In their stead, large screens were put in public places, where the masses could get some sanctioned entertainment.

One of the acts which were allowed were those of Ganymede, (real name Gary,) an Artist whose mastery of wind currents helped him perform amazing athletic feats, while clad in the sport-inspired, alluring and diminutive attire. While most of his circus-like demonstrations were carefully planned, lately the young popstar decided on doing a risky, but well received reality program.  There his tricks, jumps and fights were shot as-they-happened, live and without editing. After a couple of shows were cautiously well received by the Inner Sanctum, Ganymede decided on a make-or-break move and took his camera drone into the Burroughs, outside the citadel, for a potentially illegal but thrilling adventure.

Ganymede hoped that, while unable to live-broadcast his adventures, the thrill of the dangerous locations would boost his popularity to unheard-of levels.

The challenges he faced when out in the Burroughs, though, were hardly what he expected. Encountering Alexander, the amnesiac assassin, and security-rookie Edwards, what he witnessed sent him into a paradigm-shifting revelation about the nature of the Inner Sanctum, the true meaning of the religion the Citadel followed and the truth about the world beyond the city.

Armed with the footage his camera drone captured, Ganymede must overcome his shallowness and decide if he risks the loss of his fame and comfortable life in the Citadel, or help Alexander in his quest for the Trinity Down secret truth...

I want to Squeeze Your Muscles Hercules

Hey Guys!

Happy New Year to one and all. The few that still come here...Yeah I haven't really been able to keep the site going as strong as I used to.  Tumblr often draws me to it far too much and well, truth be told, the Canadian dollar is just so very weak now. It is hard to really set aside the funds needed  and be able to do a lot of works with talented people.  I will try  harder though this year.  I no longer have the cost of the Switch plus one million Amiibos to worry about.   So hopefully I can do a lot more in the coming months.
Todays image was drawn last year by Sirio and coloured by Caravaggia.  It came to be, as after Urbanmusiq did Hercules, a lot of people wanted to see Aladdin paired with him.  So to those people I dedicate this works inspiration. :)  Aladdin checking out all Hercs muscles was a fun idea I thought, and I hope you do too!  Of course it all really came to be, due to the efforts of two wonderful artists and dear friends.  I just planted the seed.  (thought and money..ha.)

I was going to post this online on January 1st, but something very tragic happened.  A relative of mine was caught in a fire and received 3rd degree burns all over their arms and face.  They have temporarily lost the use of one of their hands and would have lost it completely if they had not had the foresight to place it immediately into cold water. The person is gay and their parents do not care about them much at all.  So it has been up to other members of the family to come to their aid.  The recovery is going well, but we are still not sure how well the hand will heal.  There will probably always be damage to it. I wanted to do a gofundme to help support them, but their pride would not allow it.

On top of that my mothers oldest friend wound up having a stroke on Dec 31st, though we didn't hear about it till we contacted the hospital about 5 days later. Why is that? Well despite her best efforts none of the womans sons would contact us back.  They used their mother a lot, though she was blind to it.  She was poor, but they knew how to get free meals and babysitting out of her.  In her hour of need they are no where to be found and have taken no steps to even contact her sister, who my mother had to inform about the stroke!  Can you believe it?
I know someone that works at the hospital and they have been taking extra care of her, calling us every day.  We found out that for many weeks she has had no visitors at all, outside of my mom.  I find it very sad that, during the supposed holiday season, so many family members were abandoning others.  This is Canada, where we have a family day, but it seems to mean so little to so many people that live here.  I had to get that off my chest, sorry that it is not porn related.
