  • Artwork Analysis

    ‘I once worked with an ad exec in New York who had the honor of having her skirt lifted by ‘Ham’ the first chimpanzee in space, she was on vacation in Florida, this chimp clearly had more charisma than Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin combined!’

    -Ian Mcdonnell

    ‘Monkey Heaven’ is a combination of hand drawn portraits, mixed with contemporary illustrations. The copy is set in Gill Sans Regular. The piece was a 1 colour process, printed on a lithographic proofing press, there were two foil blockings made on this print, one for the banana angel wings and helmet detail and another for the star constellations.
