I'm a little embarrassed to admit that the first thing that came to mind with this week's topic, "Clean", on Illustration Friday was to submit a blank sheet of paper. Dada isn't really my shtick, though, so back I went to the drawing board.

And monkeys crawled out! They're cleaning each other, like all good families do. It's a bit of a deeper cleaning than just loose bits of banana or bugs. I just wish the photo was a bit clearer. I hope to pick up that new scanner soon. That should help get the details and great textures of these papers across a bit better.

And more monkeys wil be forthcoming!

Update 2015: new, better image!
