At first, I thought I'd leave this drawing in black and white but then I tried doing a colour version. This is the result. I'm not entirely convinced going colour was a good idea, but what the hey! The caption is in French for two reasons. Reason #1 : I am French. Reason #2 : the idea for the drawing came from a 1980s movie in which Lee Marvin played an American gangster pursued by the police who took refuge in a French farm and found out the farm people were a family of twisted bastards. So I got rid of all but one of the family members, didn't even try to make the ganster look like Lee Marvin (he's cute, but I just couldn't be bothered) and had the old farmer say : "Ho ho… My boy, when you're ready to tell me where you hid the loot from your stick-up, just gimme a sign! I've got all the time in the world! And I've made tougher men than you pee in their pants!"

Too rad for "Bound & Gagged"

More than ten years ago, I submitted some drawings for publication in Bound & Gagged magazine. A bunch of four drawings were chosen and run in one issue in 1997. The drawing to the right was among those not chosen for publication, even though it was probably one of the most softcore of the lot. What do you think the reason was?
Right, our culture has a problem with physical handicap, and I guess the gay subculture, so often obsessed with what passes for physical beauty and perfection, has an even bigger problem. It does not want to see old men, fat men, men with any kind of disability. Heaven forbid that such men could actually want to have a (gasp ! choke!) sex life. Or that said sex life might even be a tad kinky!
To me the guy I drew in "Tight Bondage" (the title of the drawing) is very hot. So he's missing part of an arm. So the hell what? It's just the way his body is. Nothing ugly or frightening about it. And it poses interesting technical problems - like, how do you tie up a guy who's missing one arm? Tackle that one, you so-called bondage masters!

Is J. Jonah Jameson in the closet?

If you read superhero comics, you know there aren't an awful lot of mature men in them. For me, J. Jonah Jameson, Spider-Man's newspaperman arch-enemy (recently elected mayor) has been a major turn on since I was in my teens. I even drew pictures of him in bondage back then. But in fact, over his 40-year-plus comics career, ol'Jonah has been bound (and sometimes gagged) more than once. This is, to me, the sexiest instance, from a late 1980's issue of Web of Spider-Man. Is this hot, or what? What's even weirder than this quasi-gay bondage fantasy, is that the character of the Chameleon was later revealed to be gay. If only this comic had been published when I was a teenager!

Boy! It sure is a lot of work putting those drawings in colour. I hope you appreciate the effort. You do? Then how about posting in a comment? Anyway, this one's called "Losing a Bet" and the question is: is the guy on the couch losing the bet now or has he already lost it and paying the price for it? Intriguing, isn't it?

Tough Boss Hostage

I was rather happy with the pencil version of this drawing, so I did a trial inking not with my usual pen and ink but with a Faber-Castell S artist pen, and I thought that version would be nice for colour. This drawing's title is "Tough Boss Taken Hostage". I'm not sure what kind of hostage-taker would tie his prisoner in such an elaborate position, but the bloke does look like a tough boss and lately, the news have been full of disgruntled employees sequestering their bosses, so who knows what might happen to such a mean-looking bastard? I'm sure I would take advantage of the situation. I haven't put a gag on him, as I quite like the idea of his captors letting him vent his indignation and helpless anger. In the final analysis, it's all he can do. So let him bellow as loud as he can, if it makes him feel better.

Grandad can't see you - he's all tied up

Just for a change, a pic I found on the web. Now, I ask you, is that any way to treat a nice old grandfather? Those nineteenth century people were even kinkier than I am.

Yes, it's a colour version of the very first image I put on this blog. This was a special request from a very special person, my good friend ZZDave, one of the yummiest men I've ever had the good chance to… er… let's not get into too much detail, shall we?

Anyway, "Big Bear Bound" was one of four drawings run in the late lamented Bound & Gagged magazine. Dave saw it at the time and liked it very much. Then, a few years later, we finally met through the internet (a wonderful invention, really), so when I launched this blog, I decided the first picture I'd post would be that one. And now, because Dave asked me to, I've done a colour version.

I'll tell you a secret - it's also one of my favourites. It's got everything I like: a big burly bear, bondage, big chunky feet and a wonderful look on the "victim's" face.

Here is another old drawing I've put in colour for this blog. The title is "Bound in the Barn" and I imagine the bound and gagged older man is a French peasant who finds himself hogtied in his own barn. His clothes are neatly piled up in a corner. He doesn't know who did this to him, nor how it happened. He must have been unconscious for some time. Who's done this? And why? Maybe you readers have some ideas?

This is a rather old drawing (I'd say more than ten years old) which I coloured today. It's funny how something old can seem brand new again when put in a different context. I'm learning to use my computer colouring tools and I'm really happy with the results on this one.

If you enjoy what you see on this blog, please leave a comment. It's the only way for me to get some feedback, and I'm really interested in what you have to say.

Okay, so I'm not the only pervert in the world. Nor does it seem as though drawing bound mature men is a new trend. The cover here is from an issue of Mystic Comics dating from 1941. This is the second cover I've come across with this character (The Destroyer) where the person in peril - there's always somebody in peril on those old comic book covers - is not a pretty girl but an old man. An old man in bondage. Hmmm… Maybe the Destroyer had tastes similar to mine. Or the cover arttist, whoever he was.
This is part of a bigger drawing that I colored today to use it as a masthead for the Yahoo group I moderate. It's called "Mature Men Bound And Gagged" and if you like the stuff on this blog, I strongly recommend you check it out.

Oh, and aren't those two lovely? The bondage is completely impractical, of course, but I like the way it looks.

One of the things I like most about drawing is being able to "picture" things that couldn't happen for real - among which non-consensual bondage. Now, I'd never do that in real life, but I quite enjoy fantasizing about it. When I manage to make it look as though the victim is not enjoying what's happening to him, and is in fact struggling to get free, I feel that a drawing is very successful indeed.
