A great case in point comes via the work of Ginette LaPalme whose artwork consists of imaginary animal characters (which are mostly feline) in psychedelic environments.
Especially amusing are these erotic animal portraits. Ginette is a part of the Woweezonk artist collective and halohalo studio in Toronto.
Implications - Consumers are looking for a shock element in all of their products. Designs that integrate a sexual aspect with unexpected characters create that element of surprise that takes the product to the next level. Companies could incorporate this into their items in order to attract more customers.
