Aussie Creates Thriving Business Around Sending Dick Drawings To People
If you've seen Superbad, then you'll easily remember Jonah Hill's character's penchant for drawing penises.
He's able to create vivid, detailed and incredible dick portraits during his school years but he's certainly not proud of it.
While that was a fictional movie, there's an Aussie bloke who has created a business around this idea and he's making a killing.
Like loads of blokes out there, Brendan Pearce has been a fan of drawing dicks for years.
"I drew my fair share of penises during my formative years, but I think where I differed slightly was the choice to pursue it in a professional capacity," he tells LADbible.
"When you find something you love doing I think you really have to grab it with both hands. I have spent countless hours working on my penis drawing skills but it's only been in recent years that I was lucky enough to be able to share that passion with the world."
Brendan says it went from a cheeky hobby to a fully grown business when he was working at creative agency Orange Digital.
His team were tasked with filling a stack of blank cards within a tight timeframe and the Brisbane bloke knew exactly what to draw.
They came up with the idea to send the penis cards to people's loved ones and when they saw how high the demand was Brendan realised there was money to be made.
"It's nice to have found my calling and to be able to use my penis drawing skills to be part of such a good news story," he tells us. "The drawings make wonderful gifts and at least 50 percent of profits raised go to a great cause - men's health charities, primarily the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.
"I've now sent about 1,000 orders of sophisticated penis artwork to people around the world, and being able to raise money for charity makes it very satisfying.
"I'm honoured that some art critics now even place me amongst the world's leading creators of hand-drawn, charitable phallic art."
The prints start at just $7.50 (£3.96) - which are a bloody bargain if you ask us.
The Aussie man's Instagram is filled with incredible, whacky and strange depictions of dicks in all shapes and sizes.
But he's not just drawing dicks, he's incorporating the male form into classic pop culture.
"A few I'm most proud of would be a Miley Cyrus wrecking ball penis, the 'Here's Johnny' scene from The Shining, and the Pennywise drain scene from IT.
"Portraits of friends as a penis are always a favourite of customers."
Brendan says his family couldn't be more supportive of his business venture, which has been up and running for four years.
He says while there are some amazing requests he's had over that time, he's certainly seen his fair share of, let's say, interesting briefs.
Brendan has been asked to draw a Christmas lobster that is also a penis, a three stage progression diagram of a muscle-up being performed by a penis, and even a David Bowie shaped penis being squashed by a giant Freddie Mercury shaped penis, with the message 'Under Pressure'.
It takes Brendan between 30 minutes to an hour to complete the custom prints.
For those people questioning why anyone would enjoy drawing dicks, allow Mr Pearce to explain.
"It's kind of the joke that everyone gets," he tells LADbible.
"It's a fun subject that gives people a laugh but it also gets attention which can be channeled in a positive way.
"A penis could possibly be a 'risque' subject for art, but I've always approached it in a wholesome and humorous way. They really are there to provide an amusing and heart warming gift and put a smile on people's faces while also bringing some attention and raising much needed funds for men's health charities."
