TOM OF FINLAND, Untitled (From "Kake" Vol. 25), 1984, Pen & ink on paper, © 1984 Tom of Finland Foundation

28 years ago today~ TOM OF FINLAND & DURK DEHNER created the
 TOM OF FINLAND FOUNDATION.

touko laaksonen aka tom of finland~ circa~ 1944

The first goal of the newly formed Tom of Finland Foundation was to offer a safe haven for the original drawings, which were scattered all over the globe. At that time, Tom estimated he had created upwards of three thousand works. Averaged over a career span of  forty-five years, this comes out to approx five drawings per month.

28 years larer~ durk, sharp and a host of volenteers continue to work at preserving homowerotic art not just for tom, but many artists~ including me~ rick castro.
happy anniversary~congrads guys!
