"I'm Too Sexy"

Do you remember the song "I'm Too Sexy" by bald brother duo Right Said Fred? This muscle-worship anthem would have been a fitting soundtrack for a new book by illustrator Glen Hanson. If you'd ever wonder if there is such a thing as being too sexy, have a look at Hanson's collection of sensual imagery of male beefcake bodies.

In October, Bruno Gmunder will publish "GMAN," which presents Hanson's famous drawings of sun-baked superhunks that oozes testosterone.

The book features lush illustrations of "fantastic and everyday worlds populated by superhero studs, sexy space-hunks, hot bike couriers, buff young jocks and Hollywood glamour boys," according to a press release.

Hanson is a gifted illustrator, cartoonist and animator. The Canadian born has designed characters for animated TV shows such as "Beetlejuice," "Spy Groove" and MTV's "Daria."

Currently, Hanson is doing pre-production work on a new animation show for LOGO, the upcoming US lesbian and gay network. This new show will be based on his popular gay comic strip "Chelsea Boys" (a collaboration with Allan Neuwirth).

Glen is one of my favorite illustrators. His drawings of hot guys are hard to put down. WOOOF.
Glad to read that he's doing pre-production work for a show on LOGO.
I wish him the best.
