We’d like to wish Mr. Jack Unruh, the illustrator mastermind behind our advice column The Texanist, a very happy birthday. Every month since July 2007, Unruh has sent us an illustration that makes us feel like it’s OUR birthday when we open it.

When the Texanist got asked if ornamental testicles were ever ok to attach to the back of a pick up truck we knew illustrator Jack Unruh was going to have some SERIOUS fun. After we dried our eyes from laughing so hard at it, we realized the testicles looked a little too authentic. We put the above round of color changes to a vote, and you can go here to see which one made the cut (zing!) and see what the Texanist has to say on the matter.
When it comes to reference photos, sometimes we have to improvise. When we needed to shoot Associate Editor David Courtney (known to the world as the Texanist) holding a baby well, one wasn’t readily available. Enter a pillow filched from a nearby couch and a little imagination, and illustrator Jack Unruh was able to fill in the blanks.
