The Archive goes a bit gay with the article from the Daily Telegraph
Before Sean Connery was Bond, James Bond, he was nude, totally nude. While trying to start his acting career and training for the Mr. Universe competition, a super cut Connery took it all off for students at the Edinburgh College of Art. But clearly the artist Rab Webster, who recently passed away, knew what sexy magic he was looking at because he had Connery pose for him a lot. Apparently, Mr. Webster—who went on to become a high school art teacher—painted and sketched a bunch of set-ups with Sean. But he never showed his work of the famed actor to his family, or tried to profit from it. Classy or stupid? Thankfully, his folks noticed the portraits of the original Bond and are putting his ass on display.
