Illustrator Danny Sangra has a penchant for doodling. In his latest exhibition 'Season of the Witch,' the artist took vintage Playboy pictures and manipulated them into humorous reinventions.

The Danny Sangra 'Season of the Witch' exhibition features images of nude models, as well as Playboy interviews. However, both have been doodled on in greatly artistic ways, changing the images from adult content, to something more child-like.

Implications - Hipsters and other pockets of urban youth demographics have a penchant for irony. By juxtaposing two dichotomous images -- adult content with childlike doodles -- Sangra creates a humorous tension that is unresolved. Companies should consider contrast and juxtaposition when creating ads for this mentioned niche group.
