A Stone Monkey Head


I don't see this one online right now. It was painted for The Adventurer, LucasArts game fan newsletter. When we drew the screen art for Secret of Monkey Island we had only a handful of ghastly colors to pick from, hence the blue green Monkey Idol in the game. For that reason as well as the tiny characters it was always fun, when I had a chance, to draw Monkey Island concepts the way I thought they should look.

That wimpy little idol on the left of the tongue stairs should be Lemonhead's idol. How cuuuuute...

One thing's missing: The monkey hanging on the nose of the totem figure.^^
