To Russia With Love

I was originally going to draw Vladimir Putin getting bummed.

With the Russian president creating laws against homosexuals, the first temptation is obviously to draw sodomy with his face on it. But I hate his face. And sodomy is great. The other thing is, it felt provocative. You see, in my country same-sex marriage has been legalised. In Russia, homosexuals are beaten on the street. I'm safe from that violence in my country, so provoking facists with an illustrative 'fuck you', quite literally, seemed... well I thought I could do better.

So instead I decide to draw something patriotic. Something loving. 'cos that's really the point.
