|Mauleo's sketch for Hercules and the Mage|
The sketch above is a bit of a rare insight into the draughtsmanship behind Mauleo's more familiar but impeccable cartoons.
I've been loving Mauleo's Hercules series for some time, he has created a real original - a big gentle giant of a Hercules, and his latest re-working of the classic sculpture ' Hercules and Diomedes' takes it to its natural homo-erotic climax.
I hope this is a series that will run and run (though I'm reading Hercules young friend - not shown here - as a fresh faced 20 year old!) and look forward to more no-holds-barred wrestling combat from the classics.
