To begin, I can draw more than just monkeys. I figure that once I get it out of my system, I can move on to other things.
Here's a picture of the pumpkin I carved for Halloween. "Ooo. Ooo." I mean "Boo. Boo."
Monkeys make me laugh and I suppose that is why I keep them around. My desktop wallpaper on my wife's computer is a picture of two monkeys.
Perhaps my monkey/pumpkin (monkin?) was the impetus for my butternut squash-art idea. I am still waiting for someone to give me a request for an image to be carved into the squash. It will be so much better if it is an interactive piece. Whatever you come up with will be far more hilarious than what my two brain cells can churn out.
