Getting sketchy

So I'm back home after my trip to San Francisco. I filmed 3 scenes (2 for Tom Ropes McGuirk and 1 for Pantheon Productions), went to the GAYVN Awards, the Magnitude Party (where I put on a live sex show... my first!), attended the Real Bad Party, and the Folsom Street Fair (where I ended up on the Kink.com stage getting whipped by Van Darkholme, and then wandered around the fair and flogged a few people. I also got to spend time with lots of old and new friends, like Drew Cutler, Leo Forte, Element Eclipse, Tony Buff and his boys, Vince Ferelli, Race Cooper, Conner Habib, Alessio Romero, Samuel Colt, Chris Porter, Spenser Reed, Tom Wolfe, Mike Dreyden, Junior Stellano, Franchesco Machado & Damien Crosse... hell, the list goes on, and on, and on!

Add all this together and also include a day trip to Fishermen's Wharf, a perfect day in beautiful Doloris Park and having Armsted Maupin watch you fuck again, and you have a wonderful but exhausting week! But you know, I wouldn't change a minute of it! So what if I'm a little sketchy tonight after the long week and the long flight home.

And speaking of being sketchy...
I started doing some rough sketches for the new line of art that I want to produce. I haven't mentioned my idea yet because I was trying to see what would work for me. What I would be able to produce in a beautiful way? And what final product might have a market that might be interested in buying it?

So my idea is to take some of the 1000's of "behind the scenes" photos from the many different porn shoots I've been in and turn them into art pieces that capture a memorable moment.
Here is a rough draft I did on the plane ride home today that kind of shows you what I'm talking about. The color photo below is one I took of Luke Riley on the Bound Gods shoot I did with him. The Black and white sketch below it is my rendition of the color photo. Please remember that it is just a rough draft that I did in a couple of hours on the plane. The final pieces I produce will look much more polished and complete. So what do you think? Is there a market out there for Nick Moretti artwork based on his BDSM experiences?

I have so many amazing stories from this week in San Francisco and I will tell them all in my next posts, so keep checking back!!

I thought that kink.com didn't need your talent at this year's Folsom Fair. I guess that saw the error of their ways.

The sketch is great! What a talented man you are!

Great to hear you had a good time. We all need that from time to time. It's what gives us the courage to forage ahead into the future.

I like the picture and very much looking forward toward seeing more of your art work. I never could draw people worth a darne. Animals yes, people no.
