Fabio and George Clooney's romance novel, "Birds of a Feather," now out!


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)

When Fabio and George collide...

I love this cover. Beats the other Fabio covers I have on my shelf.

My only complain: George should have been shirtless, too. *g*

Haha! It looks like Fabio is trying to breastfeed George. Look at those nipples. Dude, they're huge... and throbbing.

Oh god, Jolie, the horror of that image! George sucking (or is it suckling? *confused*) Fabio's aching, harden nubbins. So wrong. So so so wrong... :S

Yes, delectable, tingling nubbins.

Throb, throb, throb. *G*
