Color Me Happy

By Mikkel Hyldebrandt

Coloring book for adults features 23 black and white line art illustrations by RI-based artist Rufus that evokes a playful atmosphere depicting scenes of men completely nude or very close to it.

Alone, in pairs, or in groups. The scenes of nude (or almost nude) men are plenty and depict erotically charged scenarios that are either inspired by actual encounters or pure fantasy storylines of au naturel male bonding. And there are all ready for you to fill in those gaps and color them happy.

Rufus has been creating homoerotic artwork for 15 years and launched (F***ing Awesome Gay Stuff) in 2012 to show off his work. Until now, he has been creating mostly sculptures, using skills he developed as an action figure creator and toy designer. “Naked Guys” is his first major foray into a 2D illustrative work that fits into his “F-A-G-S” category. “I’m always jotting down ideas as sketches for possible sculpts or fun scenarios that would pop into my mind or even some real-life occurrences that I just didn’t want to forget,” says Rufus. “I looked through those sketches later and was like, these are fun… I want to do something with these.”

“Naked Guys: An Adult Coloring Book For Adults” is a collection of 23 black and white line art illustrations. Premium options of the book are available, including copies with one page colored by the artist (to get you started) and a limited number where the whole book is colored, creating a truly unique piece for discerning art enthusiasts. 

“Naked Guys: An Adult Coloring Book For Adults” ($10) is available now at More information and galleries of Rufus’ work can be found at and on his Instagram @rufusart.
