Here’s something I’ve been meaning to paint for some time now…
A whole series of animals driving cars shaped like what they eat!
I know, sounds weird- just trust me, okay?
It’s a banana boat, get it?
I think this may be the idea that kicked this whole series off- I have a bunch more in my other sketchbook I have to scan, too.
It was that or the monkey driving a banana like a car. Hmm.
I was tempted to have the monkey rowing, but then it just looks like he’s sitting on a huge banana instead of an actual boat when it has a sail.
I think I like this one because, well a peanut is sort of like a camel in that it’s got two humps
with a pre-built spot in the middle perfect for sitting in!
I think these remind me of Shriner cars or maybe some sort of weird merry-go-round for
animals or something like that.
Okay, now one that’s SOMEWHAT related but not really…
Unless that’s a motorcycle-eating monkey, this is NOT an animal riding its food. But c’mon, you can look into
that innocent little face and tell him he has to leave the page…
I like how happy the monkey looks here. That and there’s something very funny about having thumbs on your feet while they’re sitting on the
gear shifter for a motorcycle.
More next time!
