It’s Homoerotic Arthur Dent from The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy drawn by Tony Breed / hitchedcomic.com!
This is the fourth entry in the Homoerotic SciFi/Fantasy Character Pin-Up Challenge! Tony Breed says “[Arthur’s] on the Heart of Gold, in his bathrobe, sipping some that is almost exactly like, but not quite, tea, as Marvin [The Paranoid Android] looks on. Though I imagine he really would have been wearing pajama pants under that bathrobe.”
ATTN: ARTISTS/ILLUSTRATORS/CARTOONISTS OF G+/Tumblr/Facebook/DeviantArt/Twitter/etc: I challenge you to make a homoerotic version of the Science Fiction/Fantasy TV/movie/comics male character of your choice! Racial, ethnic, cultural, age and body type diversity are especially welcome. (Note: no video game or gaming characters, please. There’s plenty of filth about them online.)
Here are some character suggestions for you to homoeroticize:
— Homoerotic space hippie Freeman Lowell from Silent Running!
— Homoerotic smooth operator Agent J from Men In Black!
— Homoerotic future czar Nikolai Dante from 2000AD Magazine!
— Homoerotic woofy smuggler Davos Seaworth from Game of Thrones Season Two!
— Homoerotic uniform fetish Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart from Doctor Who!
— Homoerotic RanXerox! (OK, that one isn’t much of a challenge.)
— Homoerotic cyber-thug Morpheus from The Matrix!
— Homoerotic wizard daddy Obi-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars!
…and so on!
Your deadline is Sunday, May 19th, 2012. When you are done with your illustration, send me the image to email@example.com along with 1) the name you want me to credit for the illustration and 2) a link to your web-presence if you want me to use one with the Tumblr post, and 3) the name you want me to link to on G+ and/or Facebook if you want me to link you there as well. I will post Homoerotic SciFi/Fantasy Character Pin-Ups on my tumblog and on my other online presences with link and credit as I receive them.
I will announce category winners that Sunday afternoon!
