Chimps avec pants

Monkey pants are unbelievable but going all in with a Jack high is fine? That dog won't hunt, Monsignor!

Here we have our simian friends sporting a tasteful poke dot underpant ensemble.  I though it went quiet well with the banana stained teeth and matted monkey fur.  “But chimps don’t wear underpants,” you might say, “this completely breaks the reality of the scene.”  Apparently you’re not the only ones uncomfortable living in a world where chimps show a little bit of shame as this one was promptly sent back to my desk.

We couldn't get the butts to sign the release forms, so we had to blur them out.

This one looked more obscene than the first and was sent back right away.  The pixelation makes it look like we’re hiding filthy monkey junk.  Try again.

Sans Pants

Strangely enough, not the first time I've shaded monkey buttocks.

This work entitled, “This Man’s Struggle “or “Poker Chimps” was created as part of a series of illustration demonstrating observational biases.  This one was rejected due to, and I quote, “… the bulbousness and sheer magnitude of the primates hind-quarters are to the point of being obscene.”  Actually, they asked me to cover up the butt cheeks and resubmit.  What was the result?  Tune in for my next post.
