a nice random image to get you started:

i now have a FLICKR page too!

"why would a reviewer make the point of saying someone's *not* a genius? do you especially think i'm *not* a genius? you didn't even have to think about it, did you?"

"monkeys are superior to men in this: when a monkey looks into a mirror, he sees a monkey.”

"i am secretly afraid of animals.... i think it is because of the usness in their eyes, with the underlying not-usness which belies it, and is so tragic a reminder of the lost age when we human beings branched off and left them: left them to eternal inarticulateness and slavery. why? their eyes seem to ask us."

"we've all heard that a million monkeys banging on a million typewriters will eventually reproduce the entire works of shakespeare. thanks to the internet, we now know this is not true..."

african monkey proverb: "the day the monkey is destined to die, all the trees get slippery."

"i'll buy a bunch of monkeys, dress them up, and make them re-enact the civil war"

19th Oct 2006, 13:48

sorry bmal - i haven't.

i don't actually have much cash at the mo, so it'll have to wait til next friday....

ellen thinks i have a square head - i've asked her not to draw me with a square head in tha past, but she says that i actually have a square head, so she has to - for artistic fidelity.

plus she always forgets that i have a beard...

19th Oct 2006, 13:50

well thats not keeping the artisic fidelity is it if she dont draw the beard!

smellen says:

I am not sure brother of monkey finger, it is a strange phenomenennnnnen. If I do a full body he usually only has long shorts on and his feet face the same direction, not sure what thats about either....

19th Oct 2006, 14:30

maybe you just see him as a child and children wear long shorts and dont have beards? the feet thing i have no idea about. :)

19th Oct 2006, 14:32

Smellen says:

That might be right you know, we act like kids all the time! The feet thing is probably because I cant draw well
