slate: the sex issue

it’s been a busy week as i did a whole series of sex-related illustrations for slate’s sex issue: state of the sexual union. mind you, these weren’t about pr0n, however the sketching for these illustrations was a good deal of fun, with some dirty ideas, some very dirty ideas, and some fully wrong ideas. there were also plenty of childish, boring and prude concepts to go along with the others. honestly, apart from the condom-wing-tipped eagle, the guy with a question mark down his pants, and two i.v. bags going at it, feel free to look at these illustrations with your underage minor, charge or mom.

slate: trailhead

trailhead is a new campaign blog by slate, and with the current melee of democrats and republicans involved, i liked the idea of a blogger sitting on a heap of donkey and elephant for the illustration. to make the image read clearly, slate requested stars and stripes on the animals, which turned out fairly well. first however, i colored the animals in their natural state (as perceived by eben) to get a feel for them. here are both the flag and original version of the illustration.
