You mean the kind of illustrator that works for manga or anime company? The same companies that are still legally able to produce and distribute material focusing on sexually explicit acts with children. Is he doing research or living out a fantasy?

Now DON'T go blaming Anime and Manga for this mess! Not all illustrators work for Manga and Anime companies!
