“Tighty Whities “is from the series of quilted underwear. These works of art deal with combining male friends’ old worn underwear with pattern fabrics. The quilting fabrics patterns can be from anything from feminine, humorous, masculine, or innocent.
To me, a man’s underwear can say a lot about him, is identity, and his personality. Yet these garments, men wear are intimate and only seen by people close to them. Underwear can hint at his sexuality, how important comfort is to fashion, tradition, shyness, sense of humor, etc. Underwear can affect how a guy feels when wearing it, whether it is confidence, sexy, or manly.
“Tighty Whities” is depicting a man with a strong confidante stance and pride. The use of the pink feminine flora fabric is used to show contrast to this strong masculine and conventional male. I initially drew the male figure in the same part of underwear as the one’s quilted behind the drawing to narrate the relationship between the guy and his underwear.
