Simian Snobs vs. Slobs

I drew this shirt in celebration of shirt.Woot!'s fourth birthday, happening this week!
Here's some early monkeying around:
My first design had four monkeys going ape, playing off the numerical "4" element of the birthday party:
We ultimately decided there was just too much monkey business going on and simplified the design to the two most primary primates.

It gives me hope that even a visual genius like you often decides to significantly ditch an idea or even a mostly finished product to come to a better solution. That's exactly why my book is now 7 years in the making. ;) Thanks for sharing your process, buddy! If I can't get a dose of it walking 2 cubes down, I'll happily get it online.

I like the one with the lampshade on his head and the cupcake on the record player on his tummy. Someone put the party DJ in a sugar coma!
