A billboard for the Healthy Penis campaign has been appearing on some San Francisco Muni buses for about a month now. Today a coworker saw the ad and said “You didn’t tell me your penis was on the bus!”
I’m doing cartooning for a syphilis prevention advertising campaign in San Francisco. Syphilis rates have gone up 50% in San Francisco over the past year, so the goal of this campaign is to encourage people to get tested regularly. The campaign features four main cartoon characters: three penises and a syphilis sore.
If you’re Facebook and want to keep track of this campaign, make friends with Byron (the black penis). He’s a cool guy.
