i like emails from art directors that begin: “today’s illustration story is already live and should be…err…interesting.” and so, off i went to sketch ideas for a recipe that calls for canoodling with your partner while your chicken in the oven, or as my finer writing sensibilities led to, roast chicken sex.
slate: roast chicken for two, a recipe, by michael ruhlman
ad: natalie matthews-ramo
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.
