It's been a good month for monkey adoptions! Earlier this month, I was commissioned to remake my Halloween Bat and Witch monkeys from last year. I shipped them out on Friday on my way to a small private art sale that I was invited to. There, a little boy ran up to my booth, placed his hands right on my Mardi Gras monkey, and said "please, can you put this monkey on hold and don't let anyone have it until I come back with my mom?" I assured him that the monkey was safe (the sale had only been open for 5 minutes and he was the first person there). When he came back with his mother, a long debate ensued about how many points he had and whether or not he had earned that monkey, but in the end, his mother gave in. As she was paying, she decided his baby cousin should have a monkey as well, so my Pretty in Pink monkey has a new home too. That lucky little boy came running back to the sale with his monkey several more times over the course of the weekend. He was full of questions about my other monkeys, and sat with my tablet and looked at pictures of previous monkeys I'd made, and even talked his mom out of a few more bucks for a Tiny Tasty Taco!
