“In Fornicon, I was showing the clinical aspect of lovemaking nowadays, which is being mechanized. It was a rebellion against a mechanization of our lives, not only of sex. We live in a world that’s completely ruled by machines. I don’t have a computer. I don’t have a cell phone. I believe in my freedom. I don’t want to be tied up by everything that is imposed upon me. The drawings in Fornicon are medical. If you want to see some of my erotic works, look at the big album that is called Totempole, for instance. These drawings are drawn from life and they are, for me, erotic.” - Tomi Ungerer (BOMB Magazine, 2015)

Despite his ambivalence, Ungerer’s illustrations are humorous and charming in their absurdity.
