The Monkey King

This week's topic in Toon Club is, "IF MONKEY'S RULED THE WORLD."

I had a few different ideas. One was evolution reversed, starting with humans eventually turning into monkeys. That still might be fun to do. Then I wanted to do a presidential debate ending in poop flinging, but I have an aversion to poop that keeps me from drawing it. I appreciate it when others refrain from expounding on the subject, too, so I thought it rather considerate of me to stop that idea's progress right there. It's even hard to type the word "poop"; (shudders). Then this monkey came out of the pencil, and it's anti-climactic statement won me over. So now we know what would happen if monkeys ruled the world. Hooray! Now get back to your ruling, and stay away from the poop.

I just stared at this one for a while... the more I look at it, the more I see in it that I love. The chaos of the hair is great... and the fingers and feet... and the pose... excellent. You're quite an artist, sir. Keep it up, and publish a sketchbook. I'll buy 40.
