Dia de el Monkey

The very talented painter, Rachael Rossman, created this portrait of our friend Monkey (Moi LeSinge). If you recall, several months ago, we featured Rachael and her kickstarter project. Since then she's had over 120 requests for Dia de los Muertos style portraits. You can see some of those in her online gallery, as they are being completed.

When I saw that Monkey and Rachael had shared this painting on Facebook, I automatically knew it deserved to be shared on Skull-A-Day. Monkey is a patron of the arts and dabbles in a little crafting himself. This painting captures the whimsy and spirit of Monkey, and shows off Rachael's watercolor skills nicely. It's not easy painting or being a white terrycloth Monkey.
