Felix d'Eon Before I started photography I did drawing and painting with San Francisco artist Felix d'Eon.  I took a weekly figure drawing class with Felix in his studio.  I started photography as I often couldn't finish my drawings while the live model was posing.  Soon I was taking photos for Felix to use in his own art, and collaborating on projects together.  Here is one of Felix' drawings.  I remember it well, as I posed the Model (Rob) to re-enact the moment that I knew I was gay.  That moment was in 6th grade and I was taking swimming lessons at the high school.  The lessons were taught by the varsity swim team.  I remember one of our coaches walking out of the showers with a towel around his neck.  I had never seen anything so beautiful before, and knew at that moment what it was to be gay.  Yay!
