More Monkeys
June 27, 2006

Okay ... this should be the last time I bring up photos of the monkeys ... but after showing off pictures of my office, several people asked about the red monkeys and if I collect monkeys. The deal is that I do not actually, actively collect monkeys, but when I see one I like ... well ... this results:

The funky "convict" monkey in orange is actually one of the little dog's most favouritest toys (hence, no eyes). Stitch is here as an honourary monkey ... cuz he may be an alien, but we all know he's a crazy li'l monkey at heart. In the back are "the" 3 red monkeys. (Story of the red monkey here.) The littlest one is usually atop my monitor at work - I brought him home especially to take this monkey picture. The other large monkey is Davin Michael ... from the Build-A-Bear Workshop.

So that's the monkeys.

Oh yes, others have asked about the red monkey icon on the page. That's a vector graphic I drew in Adobe Illustrator which is based on the Fisher Price Little People monkey which came with the circus sets. There is no "real" red monkey which looks like that ... I simply blended my Ty Beanie Baby red monkey with the drawing of the Fisher Price monkey.

Oh ... and then I put it on a t-shirt at GoodStorm.

Next post: something of substance. :)

I really like the one with its tongue sticking out. Actually what I mean to say is - the one with its tongue sticking out? I really want one like that.

A green one.

Super cute monkeys. They all deserve bananas!

Isn't convict monkey actually Curious George? Did he kill the man in the yellow hat?

For someone who doesn't collect monkeys you sure have a nice collection of them :)

I would have to agree with Wendy- that is what I would call a collection. If I had a camera I'd gather all the frogs I have-no I wouldn't because that would mean having to arrange them back in their proper places.
