Tim’s Monkey

The roots of this piece is an old spot illustration I did for MakeUp Artist Magazine back when Tim Burton first announced he was working on a remake of “Planet of the Apes” so we had a little fun speculating what that would look like. I repainted it (digitally) for an upcoming show of work inspired by Tim Burton and made a giclée canvas print and mounted it on a wood panel. I hope to snap a few photos at the show and post ’em here.

Fun with Tim's monkey business
