Gengoroh Tagame (田亀源五郎) created an original illustration for the fantastic 2014 edition of crucial calendar project Bears, illustrated! Tagame’s densely-haired seducer graces the free, downloadable calendar’s January page, gazing out at the viewer with a come-hither look. What a warm welcome to 2014!
Now in its 5th year, Bears, illustrated is the beautiful brainchild of Spanish artist Christian Fernández Mirón, who annually brings together a dozen incredible artists from around the globe who share an interest in big, hairy men.
The quality of the work in this year’s calendar is truly top-notch. Nicki Charles’ Paprika-inspired rocket man charmed the pants off of me (whoops!), Leonardo Gutiérrez’ boastful beefcake stirred my loins, and Shannon Hedges’ autumnal cutie made me yearn for a cozy cuddle. Go check out the entire calendar, print it out and gaze at all these beefy dreamboats for the rest of the year!
