drop it ?
Above a sketch willem kok did of me
it was a trial for a letterhead
for my professional correspondence
in the field of my theater-light-designer work
It would have cost me a lot of orders
had I really gone ahead with it.
I did use another Willem image for quite
some time in the more tolerant eighties
and even that was not received
with great enthousiasm everywhere
So I ended up censoring my own naughty bits ;)

New territories recently explored on the db mc pages :
apr 15th:UP-dates at Cum.
apr 5th:a few new cartoons by Brad Parker. Two are under quality standard, due to bad color registration, if anybody can repair that?
apr 1st:lots of new impressive work by Player.
mrt 25th:Kyril Fadejev enlarged slideshow.
mrt 18th:new gallery started wih 2007 work of Tom Jones.
mrt 4th:A lot of discussion going on at some yahoo groups about the memory of Greasetank. Yahoo with its strong basis in the US republican party and consequent neoreligious sensorship could never be the host for a Grease tribute. A serious attempt at that, however small, but with nothing of the essence left out is at our Dutch server. Sadly US law prevents me from linking directly, so you have to ask for a password here.
mrt 1st:for the guys with a stronger stomach: bodymodification has been extended
feb 27th:a Multitude of updates on the Leonard gallery
feb 22nd:as he's been elected for our award George Cayford's gallery has been updated.
feb 15th:a lot of great detail is given on a special section of art history in High Res.
feb 6th:Angelo, a painting by George Baker has been aquired by the ' Homo Webmuseum Foundation ' , so it has been given a more prominent frame on its original page. Yep, the monsterdick page!
feb 1st:managed to get the photo pages updated to page 101.
It really works now, so go click along
jan 27th:a great page showing a lot of André Durand.
jan 18th:updates at Beau, wallpapers, RAS and Digital 3.
jan 8th:lots of additions to the trains section at 18th general
jan 1st:Happy new year everybody. To start off, a new design general page with 3 amazing artists.
2006:
dec 21th:Still had trouble uploading to the old server of Delftboys, so updates to the free section were broken off halfway a lot. Just know that I am aware, and more (or just as) annoyed as any of you, of some x-ed out images in the free art section. Luckily last nite the connection went smooth again, so there is a new Christmas Splash there and the page about Germany leading up to World War II is now intact without missing images.
dec 17th:A long overdue page on the history of homosexual art in the world of islam has been uploaded. It is our intention that all historic material, especially from the public domain and free of copyright should be on the free pages. However due to the touchy subject matter we have, for the time being, placed it in the masterclass.
dec 12th:Another sidestep: I've been restoring and rerouting links on my own splashpage So you can go back there with the "previous" button to the end of 2001. These pages all deal with queer art too, but just a touch on a more personal level.
dec 8th:new dedicated gallery: André Prévot.
dec 3rd:an update of the Nazi sculpture page, plus: the general sculpture page, which got overlooked, has moved back in place. Plus the promised update of the Roman Fantasy page
nov 27st:Another real live event to celebrate the succesfull masterclass transfer. Everybody is invited to the vernissage of the huge Falco Fresco at the local gay community center @ Lange Geer 22 in Delft at 21 hrs, december 4th. Naked sex- and dance party afterwards till ~1AM.
nov 22th:Yippee ! All still valid users of the past months had their access codes transferred to the queerart domain and given one month extra subscription. Subscribing to the masterclass, now at queerart has also re - opened. Just one last hopefully unneeded precaution: transferring all these codes had to be done manually, so still, errors cannot be ruled out. If yours does not work, just once again: mail me.
Now all that remains is clearing out dead links and setting them to queerart. In the coming days all old masterclass files at the delftboys domain will be cleared.
nov 19th:Links have been reset to point to the new masterclass URL, as final step new members subscription will be enabled again this week, I hope.
Just refound a page that was published poorly here: dedicated to the torture of Billy by artist Eric.
nov 11th:For anybody still there, I mean the clever dicks that managed to get through the passwordtroubles unscaved there is a new general gallery at the queerart masterclass. If you're lost in cyberspace but still registered member, don't hesitate to ask directions.
nov 6th:The end of login troubles is near: The masterclass, including registration and login, should now be fully operational here at the QueerArt server.
registered members could need new entrycodes. Don't hesitate to ask
nov 1st:New gallery of Zerocrop, serving our bear asses
oct 27th:New gallery of an amazing painter Frank Fruzyna
oct 19th:Sorry, not much on serious art news this month (let's consider it my inspiration break and I can tell you it worked!) so NOT 2 WORRY! Meanwhile at the contols here were some kids who found it best to get back a century (to please the old farts) with updating the Maxwell Caulfield fotos on the first èver Harry Bush gallery plus an update of the first Ted of Paris page.
oct 13th:got a phoneline subscription for the masterclass I cannot inform him about the temporary masterclass login. Just hope he reads this and do not try to be funny now; he still needs to come up with his subscription codes.
oct 12th:I'm back! a first report on a great week in California is here.
oct 2nd:I'm still working on the changeover to the new server; which takes longer then expected.
Off to LA though: Hope to bring back inspiration a rockhard cock and pix from my visit to the ToF artfair
sep 24th:Do you remember the old Vintage posingstrap slideshow? Got so much more recently, that another vintage gallery was called into being.
In anticipation of the complete masterclass move, this page has been uploaded to the new server only. All current masterclass users have been notified of the whereabouts of the URL . If you missed that message, do ask again.
sep 14th:Palanca work was added to the extreme gallery at the separate site and the Cartoons page was updated too.
sep 4th:Falco has moved to yet another platform: animation. To be found at the bottom of his updated 2nd gallery.
sep 1st:On this sad day when we have to come to terms with the demise of one of the most controversial websites, run by Greasetank. He hosted art that depicted extreme stuff and bloodhed and gore which is a big nono these days. Why that is maintained for a fantasy website and not for Hollywood has always been a mystery to me. A commercial site that was going to continue it chickened out at the last moment. We here are looking for ways to fund hosting it or a follow up site. I'd also like to draw your attention to another website: it's free it's great: Private Parts.
aug 30st:due to changed settings at the delftboys host the reliable working of the password routine cannot be easily restored. So the masterclass will move to queerart.nl. This is a vast operation that requires a multitude of links to be changed. Current Masterclass members are being informed of how access is maintained for them during the process. The old Delftboys server will remain in use to host the free section, which gets a lot of extra growth space this way. Martin of Holland will play host on a new controversial section there
aug 25th:It's my birthday today HOERAY!. As the dutch voted for the best painting èver. Nr 1 and 2 were not for Rembrandt, but for my fellow Delftboi Johan Vermeer. His view on Delft was nr 1. It's featured a lot on various db pages (but not very homo-erotic) to stay in tune I'd very much like to revitalise the poll page. There's new stuff added.
aug 20th:the CUM page was not included in the thumbs. It is now, and updated too.
aug 15th:quite a few great new photocollages on the wallpaper page
aug 7th:Frantic research over at Verotel payed off; the login problem seems solved, but some pages still have to be checked. Which, due to the vastness of the collection, is a massive work. If a registered masterclass member still finds a login problem do not hesitate to get in touch for the alternative secure way in.
aug 1st:some heated summer reading added to Rex 2.
july 26th:the swim/underwear .
july 14th:To fit in with the recent world theme of football agression and macchismo Martin came up with some great imagery by Ronald Ophuis .
july 5th: a new general art
july 1st:AGAIN a TJ update
june 25th:some updates on both the MATT galleries
june 19th:Last weeks Windows security update may cause difficulty with the password routine. I find all works well again when popup blocking is switched off and this site placed in the 'trusted' folder with security level at low. With Firefox and other browsers there should be similar options, with different names possibly. To fit with our football cover this month, here's a Leonard gallery
june 10th:the Sebastian slideshow has now grown to 225 entries and the most specta ones have a honorary space in the highres gallery
june 5thsome detail added to the history of Delft .
june 1sta lot of new imagery has been added to the desktop, wallpaper and screensavers page.
may 22thBeen talking with Martin about improving the navigation of the site once more. Due to the ongoing shift in what this site is about, the increasing speed that content travels across the net, and thus the ever increasing filesizes and dimensions of artwork presented, giving a decent overview of the overall content here is a hard job and with content ever expanding threatening to become the most time consuming part of maintaining the site. This is the reason that the overall thumbnail page has not been updated recently. It also got waaay too large for one page. Still, an attempt is made to add the new content of the past year here and split it in two.
may 15thThe historic dates overview that was part of the early ages has now been extended to all pages dealing with art history. Completing this has taken over a year, because it was so labour intensive.
may 9thThe etienne month really gets up to speed now, with a splash page and the -singalong- road kings page.
may 2ndAnother repair job was needed as a lot of trains were long overdue at art 18. a Complete Etienne strip in crisp png format was added too.
may 1stFor starters, may I introduce you to a weblog entirely dedicated to queer artwork. Some great links there to keep you busy if today is a holiday for you. Further: may will be Etienne month; some great surprises in store . . .
april 25thSomeone asked why I did not have any Tom of Finland on the site. Although there is a sound reason, his foundation is doing more than enough promotion of his work, there nevertheless is quite a lot anyway as you can see in the alfabetic directory, but don't forget the parodies at gal 27.
april 20tha corny little tribute to eighties artist daerick gross.
april 12thMr Reve's demise has moved me a lot more this past week, so further reading has filtered through to my darkroomdiaries.
april 9thMay I remind you, on the day the great Dutch peoples writer Gerard Reve died, of the page of homo-erotic artworks inspired by his writing. I also wrote an in memoriam on my own page.
april 5thThe visit to the nudes exhib at the Hague prompted not only a splash page but also new additions to the modelstudy masterclass, modelstudy free page plus the 19th Century history page.
april 1stDutch tax returns out of the way, we have time again for a serious addition: the 29th general assorted art page.
march 20thsome color and an amazingly relevant cartoon about Hollywood added to one of the oldest galleries here, honoring the legendary Drummer artist Bill Ward (continue to second galery)
march 12thFound out I never published the page on Falco's ceiling project here. Also the most gut-churning Japanese art is placed on the wellknown separate website.
march 9thTom Jones now has web-connectivity from his hybernation space: Brazil, so more serious things to say in another update!
march 5th:modelsketching virtuoso George Cayford has his own space now.
march 1st:more model army work
februari 27th:join the Carnival live from Rio brought in a Tom Jones update
februari 21st:Previous naked-god-award winner Roscoe has a new book out. As all queer culture from New Orleans can do with a kick (uh stick) in the butt, to help 'm crawl out of the mud, (sorry to those who like to wallow eternally) an ad is added. And hey guys: do have a superb Mardi Gras !
februari 17th:the current splash page takes a stand against religious oppression. In addition we have a new page with political cartoons .
februari 12th:readers of my diary may already have found the page on the photo-paint work of Johan van Breukelen, whith quite a few works for which I modeled myself.
februari 7th:After the christmas screensavers project I felt it was time for some real queer desktop wallpapers, a major serverspace chruncher. The skinnydip scene from Barebackmountain is included.
februari 1st:a significant addition to the third of the Japanese pages and go see the moving progress on devellopment of the new house style at queerart.
januari 19th:the Sebastian slideshow has now grown to 207 entries!
januari 17th:after about 3 years of development, having the new oganisation in place, we feel we should start looking for a fresh feel of the site. Until now the entrypoints homowebmuseum.nl and queerart.nl are just mirror - entries to the entire site. The latter wil for the coming months be used to try out new design and navigation. Mind you, goal remains not to get lost in artyfarty and nerdy aproaches and the first trial will not work on Firefox .
januari 14th:The interview with the very charming and witty Robert W Richards prompted me to separate the two atists that were up to now entangled in the Kent gallery
januari 9th:Something different for a change: listen to east village radio broadcast of last saturday: hilarious interviews with both Peter Berlin and Robert W Richards.
januari 8th:maby not a gay artist, but very dear and influential, so, as it's 400 years ago since he was born, an extension of the dutch page was called for. Also a pic of a guy pissing is added to the appropriate history page. And re-visit Willem Kok's version of the nightwatch
januari 4th:to welcome you across to the new annum, an illustrated marine monsterstory will keep you busy for a while.
I keep trying to improve and adhere to your wishes, time allowing.

Delftboys to me still is all about realizing dreams and living them . . .
