The play takes place in the waiting room of that clinic, so I thought it'd be fun to have the show "sponsored" by them. And, in case you're wondering, that is, indeed, a giant sperm serving to dot the "i" of the test tube...so with a little more sperm (to scale this time) at the bottom of the tube, and the sperm surrounding the woman in the main image, I make literal (metaphorically, in illustration) the Fairbanx Sperm Bank & Fertility Clinic's motto: "If you've got the glimmer, we've got the swimmer!"
The background is the nice pattern of an opera costume (from my costuming days).

This is the preliminary sketch which was included in a package to raise some funds for the production.
