Poster for Hair Salon
"Tony Tanaka Holistic Beaty"

I have this fetish about hair. I love men with beards and with lots of chest hair - even better if it is naturally curly. I adore women with long hair and long, long eyelashes. But I like them even more if they wear short-hair wigs. I am partial to Angora rabbits and hairy spiders. I love drawing hair and sometimes can't resist the temptation to touch the braids on a strangers' head. My mother has lovely long hair and my dad sports blonde hair. Our cat has absolutely gorgeous fluffy white fur. As a connoisseur of hair, I was very happy to work on the advertisement for Tony Tanaka's beauty salon, and I am even happier to receive this award.
