Vanessa, Thanks for the great comment I am a fan of your work too! Grew up in Clifton and I attended Newark School of Fine and Industrial Arts not far from you. Now over 3,200 miles away. Once again thanks.

I like the tone in this one, it seems and old illustration (50´s) or from an old short. Perfect, Vanessa.

How right you are! Monkey nests are like big bird nests. I can just picture this cute rascal trying to squeeze into a tiny bird's nest. Heeeheee! I love him, Vanessa. I love the little tuft of hair on his head. Hey, I was born in the year of the monkey!
