Shrub Monkeys 124 by ktshy Shrub Monkeys 124 by ktshy
Last Saturday was the "World Wide Sketch Crawl "[link] a day where tons of artists escape from their studios and dark office spaces to wander around the outside world, blinking in the sunlight, and drawing whatever comes across their path. Despite the distractions described in this comic I actually managed to get a couple sketches done, which you can check out on my blog! [link]

My first comic of 2011 this is also the first Shrub Monkey strip done entirely with ink and brush, fun times!

You should make this into a proper series!
Just like Archie comics, have a book published of unseen short stories with your Shrub monkeys characters!
I bet it'd sell O:

I used to get sooo distracted by sales and shops when I went out, so I actually leave my wallet at home now and maybe bring like $20 along with me so I can't really shop :XD: Love those faces in the 2nd panel btw!

Did you buy the exact same hat Hes always wears? That's a tacky move, older sister. I like how serene your boyf is in the face of all your antics.

So goes my experience with "outdoor life drawing." Doesn't my piercing stare give them a hint that I'm trying to draw them, dammit??

I always get uncomfortable drawing stranger, especially if you lock eyes for a second...
And my days of total distraction from the internets are much like being outdoors surrounded by shops and friends... too many distractions... maybe I should just unplug my internets :(
