This is a lower quality version of the drawing. I used my camera rather than the scanner. At least you can see the whole thing! The joke comes from a line in the play about puppets not being able to be lewd because of not having any sex organs. Hence the kiltlifting.
[Puppet Leander.] Here, Cole, what fairest of fairs Was that fare, that thou landedst but now at Trig-stairs?
[Cokes.] What was that, fellow? Pray thee tell me, I scarce understand 'em.
[Leatherhead.] Leander does ask, sir, what fairest of fairs Was the fare that he landed, but now, at Trig-stairs?
[Puppet Cole.] It is lovely Hero.
[Puppet Leander] Nero?
[Puppet Cole] No, Hero.
Ben Jonson, Bartholomew Fair, 1614

I've been working on this piece for about a week. This is too large to fit on my scanner, so it's missing a lot of detail to the left and right. It's a donation for an art auction to a theatre company here called Vile Passeist who produce non-Shakespearean plays of the Elizabethan and Jacobean era. They're doing a production of a play called Bartholomew Fair.
It was quite the experience to work slowly on something. My stuff is usually intricate, but I still work on stuff in one or two sittings. This was probably about 15 hours all-told. It was also a little nerve-wracking to know that I couldn't correct any mistakes in Photoshop, and that it had to be good to be worthy of an art auction!
