TGIF: Just Hangin' Around...

Just Hangin' Around
(sorry about the watermark...necessary evil :P)

I just love this little monkey! I have so much fun creating these characters. I like to turn my music up really loud and just zone out. I wish I could spend all day, every day being creative!

p.s. In case anyone was wondering, I use adobe photoshop 7.0 for all my little characters and designs AND I am self-taught (meaning I've taken no formal schooling or classes. I tinkered around until I got most of it and if I needed help I sought online tutorials). I threw that in there because that version of photoshop came out in 2002, so it's SUPER old to some people. I want anyone who wants to try illustrating to know that you don't have to have a formal degree in this stuff or have the latest, greatest program to be able to create awesome art! (not knocking anyone with a degree, just saying I don't have one and I'm still fabulous LOL!) and now that I do have more current programs like illustrator cs4 and all that, I still like to use the old 7.0. go figure!
