In a new zine released by Innen, Tom of Finland Foundation provides some rare insight into the artist’s creative process. Never-before-seen collages created by Tom juxtapose images of conventional masculinity at the time with his own vision of queer sexuality. Using his own photos and some from mainstream publications and gay magazines of the time, he altered them with sketches and scribbles, creating references for his own iconic work.
The Tom of Finland zine is now available through Innen.
