Illustration Friday: Unfold
Inspire Me Thursday: Child Art

Monkey and Map

"You got to know when to hold em, know when to fold em, know when to walk away and know when to run." ~ Kenny Rogers, The Gambler

I'm using this illustration for Inspire Me Thursday's theme this week, Child Art. Nothing in the piece was done by a child...but it is intended for a monkey toy box. Some how, my toddlers have acquired quite a few monkey plush toys. I've put them all into a shoebox and I call it the Monkey Box. It's in their closet and when they need a distraction, I tell them to go find their monkeys, which they are more than happy to dig out. Decorating the Monkey Box is on my list of "to dos" and this illustration is a start.

I have loved reading your blog and your monkey design is delightful. Get that shoebox decorated and let us see the end result!

Oh, I want a monkey box! That illustration is adorable--and I'm not that fond of monkies--monkeys? yeah, monkeys!
