Maurice Vellekoop is a wildly successful commercial artist with clients including The New Yorker, Vogue, Wallpaper, The New York Times, and Rolling Stone. At the same time he has created a huge portfolio of gay erotic art that takes up where Tom of Finland and Harry Bush leave off. Vellekoop's figures are chic and stylish but have an impish and undeniable sexiness. (They are so sexy, in fact, that we had to crop many of the images.)
