BOYTOONS MAGAZINE #26 – The male pin-ups of FRITZ OF HOLLAND.


Last year, I received a little care package, courtesy of the lovely fellas over at Bruno Gmunder. The parcel included advance copies of my new Heroes hardcover art book, but even better than that, it included samples of some new BG books and calendars done by the other artists under their label.

Sifting thorough the contents I happened upon a gorgeous calendar featuring the illustrations from the amazing Fritz of Holland. Naturally, I ripped the cellophane from it and began to flip through the months, eyes hungry for the fantastically hot and beautifully rendered illustrations.

Suffice it to say that the calendar proudly hangs on the wall of my studio.

Inspired by greats like Tom of Finland and George Quaintance, Fritz of Holland loves to create his sexy studs, always dripping with sex appeal, using his air-brush. His creations have a very “classic”, almost 50’s diner art feel to them, giving his art a real personality that stands out as distinctively unique.

Fritz states that his series of “Go-Go Gods” is a collection of playful clichés of gay culture icons. Note his take on the beefy sailor, or the pre-brokeback cowboy. Even his gas-station attendant bears a hint of erotic nostalgia.

I recently discovered Fritz’ website, and was thrilled to see some of his more erotic work on display there. You have to take a look for yourselves to see just how amazing this man’s talent is. His beefcake art is really exceptional, and his imagery is truly some of the most striking and skillful Boytoon depiction I have ever seen.

    I’ve only a couple samples of Ritz’s work over the years, and agree like many artists of all-male erotica he has a strong Tom of finland influence.
    I am glad that you provided the link to his sight, I think he has quite a trade mark with the erraticly flying ejaculate.

  2. Hey Patrick!

    This is a first for me. I have never seen Fritz’s work before and really looking forward to exploring his site and work, more so after the comment “Charvolth” has made.

    By the sounds of things it sounds like I should keep a box of Kleenex close by!

    Dirty Dirty!!!

    Licks & Chews!

  3. LOL @ the “erraticly flying ejaculate” comment. Yeah, I’ve seen his work around alot here in NYC. Before they did an article about him in either HX or Next (I forget which one) I had no idea who he was but had seen his illustration on gay greeting cards and such.

    I’m all about that strawberry basket image. YUM!

  4. WOW, I really like the body types on his guys. REALLY sexy!

  5. G’mornin’ boys…

    Glad to hear you enjoyed my little article on Fritz of Holland. He does some wonderful work, and I was happy to showcase him. I also really love how he draws the “erratically flying ejaculate”. Believe it or not, drawing cum can be tricky! HA! HA! HA! It has to look just right and some artists, like Fritz have really evolved a fantastic way of doing it!

    Enjoy the day!
    Hugz and kisses to you all!
