In anticipation of the second anniversary of Big Shoe Diaries, we're reposting some of our favorite content from the blog and we couldn't not post some of J. Bone's excellent work.  Responsible for the Colby Keller Paper Doll, the Wrestling Outfit Companion, multiple studies and the Colby Kokigami (aka Penis Hugging Colby Keller Paper Doll), this might be his greatest masterpiece (or at least his greatest interpretation of someone's else's masterpiece with Colby in the middle).  Angels singing...

Hot enough for ya? Cool down with the Birth of Penis! If anyone remembers the photos I posted from my recent water park trip a couple of weeks ago, you'll remember my goofy reinterpretation of Botticelli's Birth of Venus on the Clam Slide (I wonder if the moms at the Waterpark knew that a clam shell is a metaphor for a woman's vuvla?). Well, my favorite illustration artist, J. Bone has reinterpreted the work of art and is sharing his vision with the world.

It seems only appropriate at this time to take a hot Art History second for a Neoplatonic interpretation of Botticelli's "Birth of Venus" prevailing at the time in 15th century Florence:

"Art historians who specialize in the Italian Renaissance have found a Neoplatonic interpretation, which was most clearly articulated by Ernst Gombrich, to be the most enduring way to understand the painting. For Plato – and so for the members of the Florentine Platonic Academy – Venus had two aspects: she was an earthly goddess who aroused humans to physical love or she was a heavenly goddess who inspired intellectual love in them. Plato further argued that contemplation of physical beauty allowed the mind to better understand spiritual beauty. So, looking at Venus, the most beautiful of goddesses, might at first raise a physical response in viewers which then lifted their minds towards the Creator. A Neoplatonic reading of Botticelli's Birth of Venus suggests that 15th-century viewers would have looked at the painting and felt their minds lifted to the realm of divine love." - Wikipedia

So another Neoplatonic interpretation of Birth of Penis might suggest that I am an earthly god arousing humans to physical love and a heavenly god inspiring intellectual love in them. Not bad for a B-rate porn actor. ;) Let's all contemplate physical and spiritual beauty and stuff.


  1. I love what happens when J Bone gets Colby inspired. It's just magic. I love this drawing. I love J Bone. And I love Colby!

  2. "Plato further argued that contemplation of physical beauty allowed the mind to better understand spiritual beauty."

    Sounds like Plato was trying to justify his collection of naughty art ;)

    I'm off to contemplate my own collection!

  3. I don't think any of your fans would call you B-rate.

  4. Beautiful, magnificent!

    J. Bone, you've just outdone yourself!

    And Colby, I certainly agree with Jim that you are NOT a B-rate porno star!!

    We all think you're fabulous!

  5. Who's calling you a B-rate porn star???

    You definitely fit the bill in arousing us physically and intellectually! :P

  6. check this video out...
    he is a slightly younger version of you!!!!


  7. That's classic. J. Bone's work is rad! =)

  8. Colby, you are by no means a B-rate porn star. To use a rather poor analogy, to me you are one of the "character actors" of porn -- maybe you're not above the title, but your contribution to the porn video is invaluable because your work/performance is what makes the video sexy!

    I was telling a friend the other day that I would rather watch porn that had models who were more of the "character actor" type than the top 10 hottest porn stars of the moment, which is what I always thought Falcon did from 1995-2005 (every video had Tom Chase, Mike Branson, Jeff Palmer, Jeremy Penn, etc).

    You are an intelligent, thoughtful and humorous guy with an eye for seeing the world in a new way. Guys like that are totally what turn me on; the fact that you're a porn star? Icing on a very rich cake, but certainly not the reason why I enjoy your blog and Twitter feed. It's because you're an amazing guy that any Joe Average like me would be lucky to know, as friend or lover.

    Have a nice weekend, Colby! :)

  9. Thankfully J. Bone gave you a better balance than Botticelli gave his Venus, you A-rate porn star god, you.
