Oh Craftster, how I've neglected you these past 2 years. I'm very sorry, and I've been meaning to post this for ages, because I know how much you all love those NSFW tagged posts.
I originally got the idea for this illustration in my early teens. A friend of mine's mom made him get a silhouette done, it was cheesy beyond all belief and had him in a suit holding the family's tiny dog. She had extra copies made so she could put one in his room, much to his embarrassment. So being the great friend I am, I took a white-out pen and made it a little more sincere to the nature of a teenage boy.

Fast-forward and here is the newer illustration of it done in ink and digitally colored. The man isn't based on anyone in particular. I wanted him to have relatively generic features, but with some fancy old garb. I love the idea that the men in those traditional silhouette portraits from the 19th century weren't any more "gentlemanly" than men are today. People have always had sex on the brain, especially in the Victorian era.
I put "fracking" in the preview photo, hopefully that's good enough censoring that it won't need the usual NSFW graphic. Enjoy!

Love this and LOVE the lettering. The silhouette has awesome texture, too.

My roommate has been on a Jane Austenesque miniseries kick lately, and I keep making off-color comments, and she insists "this isn't THAT kind of movie!!!"  But, as you so pointedly illustrated, guys were guys, no matter how starchy their clothes may have been.

I think this would be excellent on a wall in a pair with either another guy thinking similar thoughts, or a girl--or maybe a triptych!
