Draw me your thing...

Here's an open brief which some of you *ahem* might be interested in. It's for a good cause and seems quite lighthearted. Remember, no photographs!:

'The Artful Todger: The Penis in Popular Culture' Why is the depiction of the male member still considered such a taboo in today’s society? And how is it truly represented by creatives and influential figures in today’s culture? The Artful Todger proposes to be a light-hearted book, examining the artistic representation of the penis in today’s culture, and invites you to contribute. Be it a line drawing, a detailed sketch, a collage, a hand crafted piece or pop up, we want your representation in our book. There will be a whole chapter dedicated to current interpretations and selected entries will be published with the most successful entry used for the front cover. All copyright will remain that of the artist and all artists will be credited unless otherwise requested. Donations from the published work will be made towards testicular cancer charities. Successful entries may also be selected for use in the forthcoming exhibition of the same name. Please send all entries to mitey@theartfultodger.com by the 31st October 2008 for selection in jpeg format, 72dpi, no larger than A4, with your contact details. By submitting your entry you are confirming that you are over 18 and that you own the copyright to your image. No photographs please.

Ok ok ok. I'll be the first to make the terrible joke: I haven't got a piece of paper big enough for this task! There I said it.
And Jen. Did you mean that pun about the pop-up book standing out to you?
