Buddies With Benefits Calendar 2012

For the 3rd year in a row, I’ve designed the annual Buddies With Benefits 2012 Calendar. FREE copies will be available this weekend at the Castro Street Fair. Sponsored by Lord Martine Global and Bud Light, Buddies With Benefits holds a number of fundraising events throughout the year, with proceeds going to a different charity chosen by one of the Bud Light Buddies. This year I got to be a bit more hands on… in addition to the design chores, I also gathered the holiday data and helped oversee the cover photo shoot (to ensure I got the right kind of image so I could properly Photoshop the boys in front of the Golden Gate Bridge (boys from 1 image, water and bridge from another and foreground beach is from a 3rd image).

PXLFORGE takes the Buddies With Benefits to the beach in 2012

The time has arrived again for the annual Buddies With Benefits Calendar (available at the Castro Street Fair)!!! The 2012 Calendar will be our first swimsuit edition and will sport 12 hot shots from photographer Barry Muniz and Stylist Christian Owen. I was on set for the shoot in order to ensure the raw material would work so I could use my own magic to transport the boys from the HotHouse studios (more on that later) to an idyllic San Francisco Golden Gate bridge beach scene.
