Edrian Thomidis said...

Oh, this one had me rolling on the floor! So funny, and boy SO true! .. and why do they always have to be red strings too?

FrankenBarry said...

yes, and it may take me a while to recover from seeing it on my monitor. Hopefully you didn't have to work from a live model! Very funny piece... in more ways than one.

David said...

This is just wrong.... but I think I've seen this guy at the beach. Great expression on his face. Very funny

Bobo said...

OoooUuuuAwwwww! I'm laughing with a frown! Alright, this is truly a funny piece!

Ok, that's just WRONG. I wish I could unsee that. You have a wicked sense of humor, my friend. And a great illustration, subject notwithstanding. :)

Josh (musarter) said...

First off, thank you everyone for the comments. I am glad you liked and did not like this one.

Answers:
Edrian- They are always red because the wearers want us all to see their buns.
Frankenberry- No live model here but I did use some photo references just to get the head looking over the shoulder right. No butt reference for this one.

Michael O'Connell said...

ouch… why did i have to see this on a monday morning…

yoon see said...

It's another candid way to respond to this week illustration.
But you did it again Josh, it's so funny.
The colors are pleasing & soothing to eyes too! Treating us to a great feast...Ha...Ha...

Great work, Josh!

Oh, yes! And unfortunately something we see a lot of here at "Poodle Beach" in Rehoboth, DE!

Heather said...

LOL! I swear I saw that guy at Barton Springs in Austin--except he was also carrying a bike...

Brine Blank said...

That could be the absolute worst thing I have ever seen in my life...hilarious!!!
