This monkey see - monkey do scene here is the front cover of my 36th sketchbook, which I finished this month. I have studied painting while in art school during the late eighties, but decided later that my paintings were drawings pretending to be paintings. Nowadays I hardly ever paint, except on the covers of my sketchbooks - for which, I must admit have something of a fetish. The canvas structure is always inviting enough to do something like this in acrylics. As a side note, this design is likely to become the cover of my next book with Le Dernier Cri, hopefully to be printed in 2011.
