Chuck Renslow and Etienne, Part 2 - Etienne's Drawings

This photo shows (l-r) Tom of Finland, Chuck Renslow of Kris Studio, and Dom "Etienne" Orejudos.  Chuck and Dom were lovers for quite a few years before they drifted apart, and they collaborated for a long time with Etienne contributing drawings and graphics for many of Chuck's publications, most notably The Rawhide Male.  Dom became ill on a 1988 trip to Tibet with his new lover, and it was discovered that he had AIDS, which took his life in 1991.  I am featuring five of this immensely talented man's drawings for our Friday art series.
