Thing-a-week: Exactly what it looks like

I know what you're thinking and yes, this image depicts exactly what you think it does. He is, in fact, looking down his own pants.

See, my sister's boyfriend, Mike Berry, is a psychology PhD student in London studying erectile dysfunction. He was in search of a light-hearted illustration for a presentation this week, and asked me to create this masterpiece! Voila.
 To lend some dignity to the awkward subject, I made my cartoon gentleman extra manly: note his dimple chin, broad shoulders and pecs. Take note, kids: this is an issue that affects men of all kinds. Or, something.

I have no idea what I'm talking about.

For something a little more coherent, check out Mike Kendrick's Thing-a-Week here!


  1. Hahahaha. This dude is skinny as hell. I think you are being a bit of a jokey McGee or maybe you've forgotten the text book definitions of masculinity. The only way he could be more emasculated is if he was buying sparkly dog outfits for his girlfriend's ex-boyfriend's teacup Shih tzu.

  2. Oh dear, I suppose you're right! :S I had intended to make him manly, but failed!

    However, at least he doesn't have womanish hips. Most of the time, the men I draw look like chicks, so this is still a victory. :)
