My silver lion from the east and my golden lion from the west. I’ll always love the fact that my mom and my mother-in-law share an August 6th birthday. Thank you both for all the love and support you bring into my life. I wish a very happy birthday to the two beautiful moms in my life- I’m sorry I can’t be there to share this special day with you both but know I’m always thinking of you and you’re here in my heart. Now please leave plenty of room in the comment section for their critiques on this sketch of them 😅😁🥰✨🦁✨ sketch based on a photo by @genevievehuba #leomom #happybirthdaymom #sketch #illustration #michaeldimotta

Repainted, and it feels so good! It’s been three years since the last time our neighborhood gathered together to paint the street mandala that I designed, and I forgot how great everything looks with a fresh coat of paint! Thanks everyone involved for the hard work and a glorious day, it’s amazing to watch it come together. I love my neighbors! 🔥💦💨🌱#pdxstreetart #streetart #streetartpdx #mandala #streetmandala #fourelements #air #earth #fire #water #oregonrose #michaeldimotta

#fbf to this #kinseyscale I created for pride back in 2012 that went viral on tumblr and is still making its way around the internet! Lesson learned- You never know what pieces will get out there, so always put your watermark clearly on your work! I’d probably draw it differently these days and I’ve had many requests for the ladies version of the scale. Maybe someday I’ll draw the full scale women to men and everyone inbetween. 🤷🏻‍♂️ until then, enjoy! ———————👬🌈✨ What is “The Kinsey Scale?” The Heterosexual-Homosexual Rating Scale, sometimes referred to as the “Kinsey Scale,” was developed by Alfred Kinsey and his colleagues Wardell Pomeroy and Clyde Martin in 1948, in order to account for research findings that showed people did not fit into neat and exclusive heterosexual or homosexual categories. Interviewing people about their sexual histories, the Kinsey team found that, for many people, sexual behavior, thoughts and feelings towards the same or opposite sex was not always consistent across time. Though the majority of men and women reported being exclusively heterosexual, and a percentage reported exclusively homosexual behavior and attractions, many individuals disclosed behaviors or thoughts somewhere in between. As Kinsey writes in Sexual Behavior in the Human Male (1948): “Males do not represent two discrete populations, heterosexual and homosexual. The world is not to be divided into sheep and goats…The living world is a continuum in each and every one of its aspects.“ http://www.iub.edu/~kinsey/research/ak-hhscale.html #kinsey #kinseyscale #gay #herosexual #bisexual #homosexual #gayboys #gaysofinstagram #rainbow #sexuality #scale #lgbt #lgbtq #lgbtqart #michaeldimotta

Recently, I was commissioned to draw my characters from an #lgtb satire of a #beautyandthebeast short story I illustrated back in 2004 with my good friend and writer @pinkpoprx. We created it for a web series (later printed as an anthology) by our good friend @timfishworks called #youngbottomsinlove! It was my first project out of college, so it was a real surprise treat to have someone hire me to create this cute scenario he dreamed up of the two main characters. Swipe ➡️to see a couple pages from the story along with my pencils & inks. #blastfromthepast #taleasoldastime #beauty #beast #rose #pajamaset #topsandbottoms #gayboys #gayillustration #gayfairytale #michaeldimotta

A little late, but here’s an illustration for the @rupaulsdragrace #season11 finale! Congrats to my two favorites @oddlyyvie @vanessavanjie, the two ( in my opinion) winners of this season! I figured everyone and their mom drew #yvies gown/ lip sync look, but I thought her blue street look was hysterical - I also took the opportunity to add @fortunefeimster & @mrcheyennejackson with no pants :) #yvieoddly #missvanjie #fortunefeimster #cheyennejackson #rupaulsdragrace #rpdrseason11 #vanjie #dragrace #dragracefanart #rpdr11 #michaeldimotta

An illustration of @ninawest ‘s genius impression of #sarahhuckabeesanders, its dead on! You can catch it in her video #HUCKS on YouTube.

This week I was invited to the #imax @superpowerdogs premiere at @omsi where I got to see a bunch of my art work on red carpet display! @banfieldlife & @herenowcreative hired me at the end of 2018 to create 11 images featuring #powerofpets and the associates that treat them to go along with the movie they helped create! This art will be featured nation wide with banefield and the movie, you can see they had them running in the advertisements before the film started too! It was a pretty great feeling and a special experience to be a part of! Thank you #banfield !! 🐶🐱✨

It’s mE, Valentina... again! I wasn’t super happy with my past version of this post, something just seemed off in her likeness.
