If I were a real artist (and, no, I'm not saying that facetiously), this is the kind of thing I'd attempt to create:
For those of you wondering what in the hell you're looking at, well, it's a piece produced by blogger, designer and illustrator Jude Buffum. (I mentioned him earlier today in this post.)
In the description that accompanies this image on the artist's Flickr page, Buffum says he "chose to focus on the erotic fantasies of abalone divers that are quite popular within the art form known as 'shunga.'"
He also mentions that the piece is an homage to Utamaro's "Underwater Assault."
