2nd photo of the day 8/25/2011. photo Mark I Chester.

If I had a special folder called Eye Candy, this photo would be in it. I honestly can't remember how we met. He was a grad student and he probably saw one of my ads and contacted me. We arranged for him to model for Gay Men's Sketch, my drawing group, but he canceled because in his excitement he became over wrought and puked. Maybe the only time I have found the idea of someone puking to be charming.

Ultimately he did model and later I photographed him in spandex and bondage. I told him that this was no passing fancy. That he was deeply connected to all of this. Years later I ran into him again and he told me that he was now seriously into the scene and that my words had been prophetic.
