Hi, guys! I am Zane Maxwell from Hawaii. Thanks for checking out my art. I studied
calligraphy and sumi-e(sumi ink paintings) in Tokyo, Japan. It was a new
and fun experience, and I learned some effective techniques, but my teacher,
an old Japanese woman made me draw bamboos and flowers day after
day. It was tedious and boring. If my teacher had been an hot Japanese
man, it wouldn't have been so bad.
Anyway, after a little while, I started sketching and drawing men in sumi
ink. It was exciting, but the drawings looked too plain in monotone colors.
So I used water colors instead on Shikishi(card board panels designed for
calligraphy and sumi ink paintings). I liked the result. The men looked
exquisite with distinctive brush touch and subtle bleeding on the paper.
The challenge is that I can't make mistakes and re-touch because
the paper is so sensitive and easy to bleed and peel. Just like calligraphy,
the initial touch of a brush determines the final impression.
Models are inspired by the men I have known or met. So many hot looking
guys I know? Yeah, because I look for them. I hope you
will enjoy my style and men. By the way, the picture below is my self
portrait after an extreme make over.
Greetings from my friends and collectors:
You gave me your art work as a gift at my house warming party last year.
You are very sweet. Mine is "Love Birds", so cute and sexy. Even my mother
loves it. It is hanging in my living room. Every guest notices it and asks,
"Who drew this?" I think you art work is going to be big and pricey someday.
I want to have another one, "Abomination 2x". If I buy another house, will you give
me that? Love ya, your friend, Joe
I purchased one of your art works. 2 guys are posing double biceps and wearing
broken heart pendants. I fell in love with your drawing and everyday I was
looking at it wishing if I could have a boyfriend like him... Believe it
or not, a month later, I got him. He just came into my life so unexpectedly,
long story but minimal efforts on my end. He had a pair of broken heart
pendants also and said he was looking for his soul mate to give the other
half pendant to. Isn't this story unbelievable? It really happened. Maybe,
it was a coincidence. I don't know. but a friend of mine has some psychic
power and he told me your painting carries a lot of loving and sensual energy
and it calls that to my life. I heard a similar story about artworks in
general, that they possess the artist's spirit and energy. Actually, that
makes sense. Well, true or not, I love your painting and my new boy friend
too. He was amazed as the guy with a cap on in your painting looks very
much like him. Best, Keith
I received your art last week. It looks really nice, nothing like the original.
I can even visualize you painting these gorgeous guys from your hot brush
touches. When I saw your art, I had to have it.
It is witty, parodic, also intelligent. sooo Kool!
Keep up your good work. I'll be expecting your new editions soon. Thanks, David
