705: (155/365) Jo Nakashima’s Monkey

This adorable cheeky monkey is a masterpiece of design: Using the back colour of the paper to highlight the face and ears, then working a nice body, lovely long tail and all.

So it is Wednesday, ‘Hump Day‘: Silly season in the assessment calendar, lots happening and a 2do list from hell. This is Eduardo Clemente’s ‘Camel’ – a dromedary or bactrian (who knows the difference?)

Every so often a model emerges that has such a naturalistic form that so perfectly represents the subject.
