The Homoerotic Art of G.B. Jones From A Tom Of Finland POV!

So what happens when a self-described “openly queer, self-made in the punk rock tradition, artist, film maker, rock musician, writer and publisher of zines” who goes by the name G.B. Jones starts a zine called J.D.s (short for “juvenile delinquents”) with Bruce LaBruce in the 80’s? The end product is a collection of her drawings called “Tom Girls” which flips the script with a Tom of Finland aesthetic. Her drawings pre-date the Riot Grrrl Movement of the 90’s, but I have a good feeling that they had some impact. G. B. Jones’ pictures depict women in positions of strength and authority, from committing crimes to protecting society. I love her work because I can almost hear the sounds of the 80’s when I look at her drawings, and they put a smile on my face because they have a sense of freedom. G.B. Jones work breaks down stereotypes, and I’m all for that, plus I would love to see her drawings on t-shirts!
