Back in 1979, I was commissioned by the Toronto Globe and Mail to create a series of drawings at the Loveboat Disco on King Street West. The art director wanted me to do clandestine drawings of the male strippers performing there. I was eager given that I was only doing courtroom drawings of long boring trials. I went with my girlfriend at the time since they only admitted women and couples. I drew in the dark while the music played and the women were hollering. Here are a few examples from my first (scandalous) reportage assignment.
