7 Lil' Monkeys

"Here, have a cupcake"
2.5 x 3.5 inch
colored pencil illustration


I've been itching for some original ACEOs* to add to my shop lately, so I sat down with a handful of colored pencils one afternoon this week and went to town. These are all one-of-a-kind and will not be reproduced as a print (with the exception of 'Sing a Song'), so once they are gone, they are GONE.

*Not sure what an ACEO is? Read on: An ACEO (Art Card Edition and Original) is an art trading card. They measure 2.5 x 3.5 inches, which is traditional ACEO size. They are wonderful little collectibles, and the perfect way to own awesome art and prints without breaking the bank. Think baseball card, only waaaay cooler.

"Coney Island Corn dog"
2.5 x 3.5 inch colored pencil illustration

I know its always a good idea to know your target audience when creating a piece... this one here is for the sock monkey-lovin'-corn-dog-eaters, who have a thing for stripes.

"The King"
2.5 x 3.5 inch colored pencil illustration

Okay, this isn't really The King... this is Karl, one of the best Elvis impersonators in the biz. No one can resist his crooning voice, his slick hair, his studded jumpsuit... He is quite a treat.

And perfect for the Elvis-impersonator-studded-jumpsuit-loving sock monkey fan.

"Just for You"
2.5 x 3.5 inch colored pencil illustration

I can't decide if this one is cute, or just creepy. Her eyes got a little out of control... but I like the bee!

"Monkey Loves Monkey"
2.5 x 3.5 inch colored pencil illustration

And for the sock monkey-hugging-monkey-plushie lover...

"Sing a Song"
2.5 x 3.5 inch colored pencil illustration

And for the sock monkey-singing-with-a-tweeting-bird lover...

There will be 12 prints made of this one!!

*SOLD*
"Stephen and the Snail"
2.5 x 3.5 inch colored pencil illustration

And because sock monkeys have a thing for snails (I might be making that up, but it also might be true... you never know), here is one for the sock monkey-holding-snails lover.

Art just looks cuter, when it is tiny enough to fit in the palm of your hand, don't you think?

I think so, too.

Enjoy!
xoxo,
