ATTN: ARTISTS/ILLUSTRATORS/CARTOONISTS OF G+/Tumblr/Facebook/DeviantArt/Twitter/etc:
It’s the Homoerotic Tom of Finland Redesign Pin-Up Challenge! Redesign Tom of Finland characters in whatever comic or cartooning style you like. Or take a character from another comic and redesign him in the style of Tom of Finland! Here are some examples of homoerotic pin-up subjects for this challenge:
— A Tom of Finland leatherman as an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.!
— Tom of Finland’s Kake as a *Metal Hurlant/Heavy Metal* sexy robot!
— Popeye and Bluto drawn in the style of Tom of Finland!
And so on! Your deadline is Sunday, May 11th, 2014. When you are done with your illustration, send the image to [email protected] along with 1) the name you want me to credit for the illustration, 2) a link to your web-presence if you want me to use one with the Tumblr post, and 3) the name you want me to tag on Facebook (friend me if we’re not FB friends!) and/or G+ if you want me to tag you there as well. I will post Homoerotic Tom of Finland Redesign Pin-Ups on my tumblog and on my other online presences with link and credit as I receive them.
Ooooh this could be good. You could do so many things with that TOF aesthetic! Can’t wait to see what people come up with.
