I liked youre stuff for a while, but this reincarnation of john belushi in spielbergīs 1941 hits me like a hammer.

You're drawing a chimp... as a monkey?? Let's remember the distinction between these two primates! Chimps are apes.. and monkeys.. well.. are monkeys (unless you want to get into the distinction between new and old world monkeys).

No more depicting chimps as monkeys! :)

Love the work but...that's a chimpanzee right, not a monkey?

Very slick regardless though

Love the idea of old school pilot style flying monkeys, it gives them the respect and bad-ass attitude they deserve! The linocut-esque linework really adds to the character of the piece too. Excellent job as always!

Shouldn't that be "Wicked Banana Squadron"? It would go better with their logo patch, too. : D

Wow! Isnīt it Katy Perry?

Brilliant as always!
Itīs amazing how you achieve all kinds of textures by ink crosshatching... I like the leathery texture on the color level as well.
Both techniques really compliment each other and add up to an awesome piece of art. Itīs similar to Drew Struzanīs meshing of pencil, airbrushed acrylics and colored pencil.
