"Today I received a plea for a drawing from someone named Jessica:

I'm in need of someone who can, seriously, draw a cartoon of someone driving with their head up their backside, to be polite. Somehow it needs to show that the operator of the vehicle is completely oblivious to anything outside their vision, which is to say limited when surrounded by a generous overlapping of butt cheeks.

Wow! I've turned into the Xmas Grinch -- No, I have a customer who was T-Boned last summer, turned his bike into an accordian, and really, really, wanted a law in the Oregon Revised Statutes that literally prohibited "operating a vehicle with their head up their ass"! A good friend, who is experienced at wording such documents, completed that. I just need a drawing to accompany it, for the individuals who drive
like that are likely to be illiterate as well!

I hadn't done an illustration in over a year, but because I was doing a three-hour render in Studio Artist, I sat down and knocked this out. Oh yeah, I still got it."

Beautiful. Now all that is needed is this on the back of a T shirt with the international line with circle across the whole thing, to negate it.

I can't resist. Now, how about an image of the guy with his head up his ass AND talking on a cell-phone at the same time?

Nah. How 'bout a $189 bicycle helmet? Just to be safe.
