The Skull Monkees by Phraggle The Skull Monkees by Phraggle
I've had this laying around unfinished for a few months. It's done now. It was an album-cover concept that didn't really go anywhere. The guy of whom I designed it for just wanted me to come up with something as he didn't have any ideas of his own at the time. There's a minor theme of monkey-related things throughout the album and this is supposed to be a play on the " speak no evil, see no evil, hear no evil " ... slogan. He went with a band photo for the cover & I'm glad cuz it's a good album and this would've just been silly. The last time I did a cover for him I employed the comedic use or dog urine. Live and/or learn. :-)

Well, I don't know him from Adam, but receiving a piece of artwork like this and turning it down just shows poor taste and bad form.

Oh, it wasn't like that at all. It's mostly just a sketch that I finished up on my own. :aww:

Okay, good, that's just the story I saw in my mind with only knowing the surface details! :)

Yeah, it was all cool. He wanted me to come up with an idea since he didn't have one. So, I cobbled together the monkey thing mostly to help him generate ideas. I'm not being humble or anything when I say that I'm glad he didn't use it. It really felt nothing like the album. :-)

Ah, makes total sense.  Though I have been burned before, done a lot of work for someone and totally rug pulled.  :)

Maybe we'll be able to give out monkey badges as well as llamas. :iconllamajumpplz:
