Some illustration work that came up this week... (not work, school or child safe!)

Believe it or not I spent most of yesterday drawing and painting 3r3ct p3nis3s. And a chin. And not just for the sake of it, because I'd been asked to do so by the magazine I mentioned earlier this week. The next issue (out early March) includes and article about phobias and they asked various artists to illustrate some of the stranger ones. I chose ithyphalophobia, the fear of seeing, thinking of or having an 3r3ct p3nis, and geniophobia, the fear of chins. I thought they were made up but apparently they're boner fide phobias. Aware that human 3r3ctions are illegal in UK media, I gaussian blurred (don't ask me what it means - it's an effect in paintshop) out the offensive members in the hope that it would render them palatable to the censor.

I dropped them off at the magazine this lunchtime and they decided to go with the one below - WITHOUT the blur! Which means I'm free to show you these blurry versions. I'll post the chin - and perhaps the uncensored versions, depending on my courage (I'm getting paranoid even now as I sit in the library, my screen full of cartoon 3r3ctions) - after the magazine has been published. Sorry if my representations of god-made human anatomy (exagerated slightly offend!
