Sidewalk Monkey revisions
As always, design (and painting) is a process. Here is the final solution to the Sidewalk Monkeys problem. The other versions were really bothering me in that they were, well, just not very good. Even though they communicated elements that I liked, they didn't do it clearly, and didn't hold the viewer's attention (i.e. boring and confusing).
So I went down to the basics and did pages of ideas in my sketchbook the last few days on the train to/from work. There are a lot of things I like about this final version, but I won't go on about it. If it's successful, it should communicate without me needing to explain it. And if you have comments or things that you see that I haven't, let me know.
Go Sidewalk Monkeys!
