I don't know where I'm going with this piece. It is really just making itself (as a lot of my projects seem to do). I never sketch out a design. I imagine that's because I can't draw.

I gave the monkey a curly tail and a top hat. I'm thinking he needs a necklace too....
I am so looking forward to seeing more of everyone's eye candy in 2009. The talent I have encountered in the past few months since I started blogging is such a treat. I applaud all of your talents. I hope to learn html (I am entirely clueless!) in 2009 so I can improve the layout of my blog and maybe even make my own web page - wish me luck! Happy New Year !
