A comic artist going by the name of "The Spooky Red Dot" is unapologetic when it comes to her illustrations.

She pushes the envelope when depicting characters in various predicaments that include dating, death and even the female orgasm.


And we can all relate to most of these hilarious cartoons she refers to as "finessing the appropriate."

Introducing: "Red Dot."

Magic runs in her family.
