One of them’s fictional and they’re not exactly contemporaneous, but Des Esseintes (the protagonist of Joris-Karl Huysman’s Against Nature) and the Marquis de Sade (the eponym of the term ”sadism” and the man who made me realize it was possible to get tired of erotic poop-eating descriptions) should totally hang out. They could talk about how hard it is to find new and exciting things to consume when you’re a grotesquely wealthy French guy with little to no moral compass.
I didn’t draw it very clearly, but in this sketch, the Marquis is enjoying a poop shake.
Also, sorry about the lack of 30 Day Character Challenge posts recently; I’ve been out of town, frolicking tabletlessly with my good pal Lairn for the last few days. Back on track tomorrow!
