This print is a colorful image of a sink filled with green water. At the center, there is a miniature boat that floats in the water. On the counter-space of the sink at the back, there sits various toiletries such as mouthwash, perfume, toothbrushes, and a razor. Almost out of the frame, a red washcloth hangs off the left edge of the sink. The print is signed (l.r.) "Doug Webb" and numbered (l.l.) "AP 24/75" in pencil.

This ink drawing on paper has a black wash ground, with two figures drawn in opaque black ink. On the right, a comic figure, in only boxers and a pointed hat, dances. His right leg has been kicked through a television set that he holds with his right hand. Scissors fall from his left hand towards what looks like a two-slot toaster on the ground. A black, horned beast lurks in the background, holding a phone overhead that has two earpieces, attached together with no cradle.  In the background, a headstone-shaped form silhouettes the dancing figure.<br /><br />
The drawing is signed and dated in ink (l.l.) "KOSTABI 1984".
