These are the reason for "Monkey-Cats" Studio receiving the name. Pretty cute when they were kittens but they are now 9 years old, still think they are kittens and try to fit in the same spaces on my studio table. For some reason these two have very long tails like a monkey and received the nickname monkey boys from my husband. We are sure they can swing upside down by those tails! Their real names are Jake and Elwood, after the Blues Brothers, because they try to do the right thing but they are just naughty.
This is my first attempt at a little owl figure for Halloween, and he isn't quite there yet. He needs to be "monkey-catted" up a bit more before I'm satisfied so I'm sketching out ways to try to make that happen. I'm finding out it's hard to make an owl beak smile......
especially when I think of owls as being so worldly and wise, but I have some ideas so we will see how the next sculpt goes!
In the meantime have a great weekend and enjoy the spring weather!
