Venezuelan-American Mauricio A. Rodriguez has a unique skill in assembling half-nude collages that escape the leghold trap of grotesquerie.

Collage seems to show two torsos, a tattooed arm, a leather necklace with pendant
Collage of photos seems to highlight a hand on a jockstrapped arse

Like so many photo-illustration styles, it looks easy to put together. Give that a shot sometime.

Perhaps even more unexpected are Rodriguez’s self-dissimilar collages:

Bright teal sky and sea with a collage of the same bearded man in mirrorized shades
Dark-tinged man overlaps shadow of much larger light-tinged man

I really like my pictures; my homosexualist-lock-screens project is what I am most proud of in living memory; this personal Weblog is an absolute cultural treasure.

And, last but not least, I don’t like you, either.
