This one really doesn’t need any explanation. Sometimes I like to work on a theme, and the theme for mid August last year was women on fish hooks. Women often times fix themselves up in order to be more attractive to men: earrings, eye shadow, jewelry, a little cleavage, all man-attracting items. This is not unlike when I go trout fishing in the Sierras. If I wanna catch a fish, I gotta put something on my hook that they like. What they see in a sparkly pink globule of freshly out of the jar Power Bait is beyond me. But it works every time – stupid fish.
I think these drawings would have worked out better if I had a model to draw from. Sadly, The Wife refused, and I only had my imagination, and warped sense of anatomy to go on. Image yourself in your living room, sitting in your favorite recliner, feet up, eyes closed blissfully listening to the Doors “Light My Fire”, when all of a sudden women on fish hooks start descending from the ceiling. Would you snap at one like a fresh out of the hatchery trout, or, would you think twice? I’d like to think that I’m a better man than that. I’d also like to think that I’m still 18 years old, and a lot of other things that ain’t never gonna happen.
