I was supposed to draw an illustration as part of a gift of prints for a friend’s new office. I had the following guidelines: black & white, and an animal. This ended up as my submission.
This drawing makes me smile. It came from a ‘happy accident’ where spilt ink looked like something. So I added some lines & painted (thickly slathered) some white here and there & it all came together into this blissful smoking ape.
It’s also unusual for ‘happy accidents’ to turn out this well. I usually have a lot of recycling to do at the end of the month. I won’t recycle this.
