1. Name : My name is Joe, draw under the pseudonym of Silverjow.

2. Occupation (outside of DA): Commercial artist/graphic designer

3. Location: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia


4. Years making muscle art: I can't actually remember when i start doing muscle art. But I distinctly remember, I decided to share those art on the internet(DA) in June 2014.

5. Schooling - formal - for art, if any: I got my degree from an Art Institute. I was an graphic design major and fine art minor for three years.


6. Your professional artist inspiration (mine is Boris Vallejo) : There are a lot of artist that inspired me like Tyler Jacobson, Artgerm stanley lau, Kekai Kotaki, Carnet de Nesskain and of course some bara artist like Takeshi Matsu and Jiraiya. But the one that inspired me to do muscle art in my current art-style is Jacob Mott and Patrick brown.

7. What are your tools of the trade (wacom, Photoshop, number 5 pencil, etc.) : Photoshop CC, wacom intuos4


8. What motivates you to make muscle artwork? Hormones.... *laugh* The beauty of male anatomy perhaps. The fantasy of exaggerated superhero like beefy body proportion that can only be achieved on paper.

9. Is it a time consuming process? It depends on the complexity of the artwork. Mostly yes, I like to focus on attention to detail.



10. What distracts you? Work and life.

11. You have a lot of big beefy artwork – how did you get interested and what inspired you to create it? YEARS ago, before i learn about bara. I saw this artwork from Jacob Mott on the internet Blonde Muscle Dude by jacobmott
I fall in love with it as soon as I saw it: muscular physique, thick neck, unrealistic giant arms and big hands.... At the time I was wondering, how could Jacob's art manage to give me boner with such simple linework and colour toning. Since then i start study his work(and other bara artist's artwork as well)and learn to draw men in exaggerated beefy body proportions.



12. What is difficult for you the draw? Realistic drapery and wrinkle of different clothing/fabric on muscular body, dramatic composition, interesting colour combination. I also don't like to draw geometric structure.

13. Why Muscle? Why not landscapes, still life or kittens?

I'm a professional commercial artist, I've got to draw a lot of stuff(not only landscapes. still life and kittens) every single day, some of the stuff that I draw I have no interest in it. Drawing muscle is like a interval of restway for a change of pace, a leisure activities to relief. This is why i don't do commission and i don't accept request.

I believed a well rounded artist needs to explore as many technique, style and medium as possible. Therefore, I also enjoy real life sketching while i go traveling, paint from life using watercolor occasionally. Muscle is not the only thing that i draw.

14. What do you think the future holds for you - artistically, professionally? Hmmm... I don't know... I don't like to fix a path or set rules when comes to exploring art. One thing that I'm sure is I'll continue drawing and painting until the last day of my life.



Thank you for taking the time to share with all of us about you and your fantastic muscle art.

Good to let us know more from you, silverjow . It's always nice to see people devote to their true innermost interest. But I wonder if you'll get a clear direction like having a series of characters or stories?
