PREVIOUSLY UNREVEALED HANNES BOK HOMO-EROTICA!
If you're a Science Fiction and Fantasy illustration enthusiast, no doubt you've come upon the artwork of WAYNE WOODARD, better known as HANNES BOK.
Bok's career began in 1939 with WEIRD TALES magazine and flourished in the 1940-s-50's. He went a bit "funny" in his later years, closed himself away from people, barely scratching by, painting primarily for himself.
These Homo-Erotic drawings were done at the close of 1945—Bok himself was not one of the models—he was for this setting, the voyeur—the visual recorder. although both of the participants had been Bok's lovers as well.
The 21-drawings are done in red pencil, blue pencil, and regular '2H'; none of the drawings are signed—perhaps Bok realized that the subject matter was just too dangerous to put his name to, and also why the drawings remained hidden for more than seventy years. The features of the models are "sketchy," and slightly caricatured, however the physical sex is extremely graphic. If the sight of very anatomically correct or incorrect male genetalia offends—you have been warned!
Provenance—These drawings passed from the estate of one of the participants, to his closest friend for whom I am selling them. Full-disclosure to the purchaser. I can provide a few un-censored images upon request, but for the site only suggestions.
Please SEARCH by author until I can get my images to work!
