Mike Ruiz, Sailor Boy

THE SHOT — We’ve already seen photographer Mike Ruiz do the Tom Of Finaldn thing with models for Instinct‘s pictorial “True Brawn.” But now he’s done gone and turned himself into a living homage. Just a publicity lead up to A-List: New York, we’re sure.

      Never heard of him but give the man a break. Not retouching pictures of yourself is false modesty, not photographing yourself is a missed opportunity. Besides, the desired effect needs retouching. I think it looks great.

      Yeah, saw him on Kathy Griffin’s show…..he VAGUELY resembles the guy in these pics. They have the same eyes, that’s it.

      Come on guys– the pics are FANTASY. No one who looked like the Tom Of Finland pics would live very long either– it’s a blown up fun FANTASY. And if the photographer used some artist magic to make the illusion work, then far out. It’s not like these are his cruising pics.

      This is so stereotypical and vain. Same leather vests, same leather caps…my, my, can’t we be a bit more original?? The whole gay male scene has become a cartoonish, vain collection of men with cellulite who think they look great in chaps. Spare me and pass the smelling salts….

      Didn’t know who he was so I googled. He actually looks better in the real pictures of him than the Photoshops so I think the retouching was just for the desired effect of the piece like “UU” said.
