The Laundromat! Whether during the college years, that first tiny apartment, or the week the washer or dryer was on the fritz, we have all had to deal with it at one time or another. It is almost a rite of passage, dragging all your dirty laundry down the street and then having to find something to do for a couple of hours while you wash, rinse, tumble, and fluff.

When I started this piece, all I initially had in mind was a guy in his underwear, an element missing from my art during the past six months. That's a long time for someone with a pretty big underwear fetish. I also wanted the setting to be one of those every day moments, but something that could easily be made sensual or erotic. Then a friend suggested a day at the laundromat. And while a box of detergent sits right there on the washer, I actually managed to omit those fun-to-draw soap bubbles.
