I love romance novels but I have no love for its covers, particularly the likes of a groping couple riding some legless horse or a huge beribboned mountain goat. Still, I gotta admit—IF I WAS FORCED TO, like I was trapped in a cave on a deserted island somewhere with no handy porn or a BOB—I could probably fiddle with myself while imagining some hunky hero on some romance novel cover art. But this... this...
Erm... *ahem* I’m not gonna lie to you; I’m thinking I’d get better results imagining some platypuses humping than picturing George Clooney and Fabio gettin’ it on because JFC, I’d die laughing!
Fabio has a big problem with birds. First he was humiliated and bloodied after a flock of ducks collided with his face as he rode a roller coaster. A few years later, he was attacked by a flying bird again after his date tried to take a picture of George Clooney sitting at a nearby table. I was seduced by the idea of Fabio and Gorgeous George embracing on the cover of one those cheesy romance novels Fabio used to pose for and I was overcome with the burning desire to paint it. Breathlessly, I held my pen and allowed the tantalizing image to pulsate through my body and onto the paper. Swoon. Medium: ink on paper, digital color and collage.
Here’s a page torn passionately out of Fabio and George’s romance novel Birds of a Feather. Written by Candace Kirby, it will leave you begging for more. (Source)
