I used to work with a guy who was big on taking nude photographs. I don't think he ever wore a bow tie, though.

In other news, I wish I hadn't referenced Life magazine. That makes the strip seem dated, since Life has since come to an end. Except that, doing a little research, I see that Life magazine ceased publication in 2000, and I drew this comic in 2002. Did I not know the magazine was finished, or was that part of the joke? Is Scuzzball pretending to work for a defunct magazine? It's hard to say. All I know is, Life magazine was once a cornerstone of American culture, and we should all be sad that it is no longer with us.

I still want to know how scuzzball takes photos. or holds the camera.

and i think the dated reference just makes it funnier-it's like any girl gullible enough to pose for scuzzball is gullible enough to think life magazine is still a thing.

He holds the camera through sheer force of will.
