Mackintosh’ loosely drawn graphic ‘x-ray’ male figures proceeded from a continuous to-and-fro motion of the hand, and his favourite subject was a man with an erect penis. He likewise paid particular attention to eyes, eyelashes, nose and navel, as well as to fingers and toes, which multiply to the extent of covering the entire surface of the drawing.

His ink compositions are accompanied by repetitive flowing unintelligible writings that are more expressive as a result of their gestural rhythm rather than their verbal meaning.
