I know they knew of each other, but I didn't know how much. I also know that Dom had a long time life partner either in the late 70's or past it and they owned a bar together.

And is that where the foundation is?! Why did I think it was in Arizona? o.o
Isn't some of your work in an erotic museum, too?

Yea Etienne was a hottie too-- cute little Latin guy. Apparently he was a dancer and I think a musician too. Personally, I've always liked his stuff more than Tom's-- it IS more imaginative like you said-- and kinda just more technically accurate, in terms of anatomy. Tom's work was a bit more palatable and was notoriously pirated for years so it saw much more circulation and gave him a lot of infamy.

The TOF foundation is in Silverlake in LA. It's the house of this guy Dirk, one of Tom's models/ lovers. Tom lived there when he was in the US. His room and drawing desk have been left virtually untouched since he used it. Dirk is really cool-- he's older but you can totally see Tom's inspiration in Dirk's face. He looks just like the drawings-- just older. The house is incredible-- gay erotica wall to wall.

I'm affiliated with the Leslie-Lohman Museum here in NYC. I've had pieces in shows at the gallery space and the founders have purchased a few of my drawings, so technically I'm in the Museum. But it's not a permanent exhibition. Most of the acquired work is stored.

Interesting tidbit: The 2 organizations are kinda rivals and kinda one-up each other. TOF thinks that LL stole their idea-- meanwhile LL has broadened it, getting full-on Museum status and having a really nice gallery space. TOF still has Tom originals though-- which puts them kinda high. But LL has weekly erotic figure drawing-- TOF only has it like bi-monthly. If I had to choose one or the other, I'd go with LL. They have their shit together a little better than the TOF foundation.

Heehee...I love your little traveller guy. I would love to see him, and his cuteness, more often.
