Not all phobias are personal. Fear can be social; a contagion passed down and around. "The Monkey King" was designed as a kind of visual fable. I've had Aesop on my mind lately.
For the first time, I was able to document the step-by-step process in making this piece, from first scribble to finish. I'm hoping to post the pics up soon. Everyone should know how to build a monkey.
