This past summer, I was happy that I made it to the Tom of Finland show at Artist's Space in SoHo. I love looking at an artist's originals; seeing the ink lines and the corrected errors really reminds you that an artist you worship and admire is a human being. They made mistakes just like you mistakes. It's truly another level of inspiration. The exhibit continued to their bookstore further downtown, where they filled an entire room with Tom's reference images. Thousands of clippings that he had glued down to sheets of paper, some augmented with a pencil eraser and pen to include jodhpurs or an extra large bulge, or both jodhpurs and an extra large bulge.
