PETER MCDONNELL ILLUSTRATION: THANKS, VIAGRA

February 23, 2016

Peter McDonnell’s thoroughly modern illustration was inspired by the classic comic strip style of Flash Gordon. “I drew the image before I had any idea of what the dialogue might be,” says Pete. “Only after playing around with several options did I decide on this rather suggestively sexual exchange.”

This is clearly NOT the kind of dialogue that would have ever appeared in the daily American newspaper funnies, but it was intriguing to juxtapose the contemporary (and racy) words with the classic subject matter of a soap-opera comic strip.
