I don't think girls slap guys and yell "fresh" like they did in the old days but what can I say, it was the first thing that popped into mind and I immediately thought of a old playboy style gag. Something I admit I don't have too much problem letting my mind wander too. We are getting ready to go away for the weekend and yet somehow I mangaged to dash this off.
what a cad! Have a good weekend folks.

You absolutely captured that 1960-70's playboy style on the look, the gag, everything. Really put together well, esp. everyone's expressions.

Haha, he looks like he felt the slap was well worth it. I like your work. Your post of Nicholas brought back lots of memories... it had been translated into Chinese and I read lots of it when I was a kid, love it!

When I was thinking about "fresh" I was not thinking that... this is a hilarious interpretation!

kg said...

this is awesome. i especially love the texture of the brick building. and... crack-me-up, that guy still has a friggin' grin on his face after all that!

carla said...

Funny! The faces are just right. I have a print on the same subject, but it's with people in late 18th c. garb...the fellow is sneaking a peek at the young lady's ankle! You have such a fabulous style, Drazen:>
