Catching up with my series Men on the index with this handsome muscled guy. He reminds me a bit of the time before I started working out regularly – and when reading in bed and laying on my belly gave me instant lower back pain – ouch! He however seems to be pretty comfortable in this position. I guess his lower back is super strong now since he’s showing of that mustache killer smile! Somehow I get the feeling that the book he’s reading is pretty exciting 😉
Cutting out his delicate profile from the pink origami paper that I used as a background was a little tricky, but I think it was worth the effort.
Here’s a little time-lapse video of creating this piece for you:

I found the inspiration for this artwork at Vintage Black Dudes on Twitter.
A selction of drawings from the Series “Men on the Index” is already in my shop. I’d be happy if you take a look!
