Mr. October (and an extra treat!)




What little clothing Mr. October's wearing is certainly stylish for the period. He seems in very serious concentration, and maybe it's just me, but that jack-o-lantern's one eye opening seems downright naughty and nice at the same time. As with other months in this vintage calendar, we see the mysterious hand (notice the bird tattoo) offering suggestions of what perhaps is yet to come for our model? 

Dom (his real name was Dom Orejudos was) was 20 years old when he began using the name Etienne, when his work was published for the first time in 1953's "Tomorrow's Man" magazine, issue #8.

Born in Chicago on July 1st, 1933, Etienne was a dancer and choreographer with the Illinois Ballet Company for 15 years. In addition, he was a very respected businessman, famous for his male physique studies which became internationally known. He was the recipient of three National Endowment for the Arts grants and was nominated/received three Emmy Awards.
His artwork is understandably sometimes confused with that of Tom of Finland. Both men definitely had an appreciation for very masculine guys and both enjoyed creating intense fantasy worlds. It's been reported that both artists knew one another and liked and respected one another's work. We'll take a look at more of his work in the future.



One of Etienne's most-favored artistic styles was to show a charismatic character becoming the sexual brunt of a masculine joke, usually at the mercy of other men surrounding him. To some, his work pushes the envelope of aggressive machismo sex that's sometimes depicted, which the artist himself once described as trying to capture man's "fears, needs, and unapologetic raw power."  He died of AIDS complications in 1991.





EXTRA TREAT!
Some of the adult games and sports that men like to play together can be confusing to onlookers who don't quite understand the rules of play.  It looks like this jock stayed in the locker room a little too long after the game, and now he's about to take one for the team and his own enjoyment (that strapped ass looks like it's been in this accommodating penetration position before).  As always, Etienne can't resist adding a bit of fun irony---A jockster in white socks is about to get a beefy fist 'rammed' up his tight ass while being constrained on a table marked PROPERTY OF RAMS.
