my friend jen alt, who guided me through the technical aspects of printing tick, had just finished helping angela law to launch the first issue of sweeeeet when they approached me about creating a connect-the-dots for their next installment. this was initially going to be the “adult” issue, and i got excited about the idea of making an interactive version of a sexy old painting.
but then autumn came with its fevered presidential race, and plans changed. and so i made this drawing for their special election edition. creating a workable image of dots and straight lines turns out to be extremely difficult, but also a lot of fun. so if you see angela, you should tell her about how what you really want, more than anything, is to do a smutty connect-the-dots.
