Fabulous illustrator Robert W. Richards was in Berlin this summer to present a book from his NYC exhibition by the same name,
Stroke: From Under the Mattress to the Museum Wall,
in which he collected some overlooked, but definitely worth-looking-at pornographic illustrators
who drew during his heyday in mags like Freshmen, Torso, and Honcho.
One of twenty-five artists from the catalog, Michael Kirwan, never liked his men pretty:
‘old, fat, ethnic, plain, disabled and unusual queers exist and are equally deserving of being depicted’.
