I painted this illustration for the Las Vegas Weekly for an article titled “(Getting Dirty) Ask Not What Your State Can Do For You… Las Vegas Weekly proposes extending the $5 sex-act tax.”

It is an extraordinary story about a proposed bill that would tax prostitution at $5 per “session” in Nevada.

This illustration was complicated by touchy photo reference. As I rely on models for poses, it isn’t always easy to request someone pose nude— much less as a prostitute!

Thankfully, I rely on several understanding models.
