Beach Bum, Starring Alan Ilagan


You never know what might slip into view on a Provincetown beach! In my new Cheesecake Boy painting Beach Bum, Starring Alan Ilagan, the hunky subject bares more than he intended when his skimpy speedo gets yanked down, much to the delight of fellow beachgoers. With the sun's rays now shining upon his white rump, Alan strikes a pose reminiscent of another tan-line exposing icon from years past.

The original painting and medium-sized prints are available through the Lyman-Eyer Gallery here. If you'd like a small print, visit my online store here.

To see some process pics, including Alan's cheeky reference photo for the painting, check out these previous blog posts:

I interviewed Alan a long time ago for best gay blogs. I'd lost track of him. Nice work.

Paul - Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! It was so fun to work with you and watch as your creative process created a piece of art from such raw stuff. Can't wait to see it in person this summer.
