Where This Meets That

Monkeying Around: The Things We Do for Our Kids

My daughter asked me to draw her a chimpanzee’s face this morning, and I had a little pocket of time for a change.

As I worked on it, I realized I’ve never made a serious attempt at drawing an animal.  I’m glad it was a chimpanzee. I love chimpanzees.

I neared completion before thinking to ask my daughter why she only wanted me to draw the face.  As it turns out, she planned to turn it into a parody of the Mona Lisa.

That little monkey!  Sorry I asked.

So first, I present to you my “serious” chimpanzee . . .

And now, I present . . . my mockery!

The things we do for our kids!

NOTE: If my drawing interests you, remember that personalized drawings make tremendously special gifts, and Christmas will be here before you know it. If you’re interested in giving a gift of hand-drawn art this Christmas, contact me for a quote today!  You can see some more examples of my work at my gallery.
