    We chimpanzees are too few. How can we take the iniative when they are in control?

    Here is a cool photo of a sand crab. These suckers are less than 3 inches wide and run fast. It took me several minutes to tire out this crab before it would stay still. When they run on the sand they look like leaves being blown around by the wind--that's how fast they are.



    I love the composition of this shot:


    Here is some palm fiber that look almost like it was woven. Palm fibers glued onto cloth were used for the human outfits on the Planet of the Apes. I forget where I read that.

    I had a lot of downtime in Nairobi. I was able to complete this sweater while over there for my newborn nephew.





    I believe that you should try all types of food or consumables at least once in your lifetime, like camel milk, even if it was in the form of yogurt. I tried this on my last day there. It was really delicious. It was vanilla flavored and it was powdery but very very delicious. I mentioned this to my sister, who said that she has tasted water buffalo milk on rice, and she said it's so rich it was like cream. Thinking about that makes me drool.

    I have that old figure, he's a great looking piece (in storage at the moment) but you can see a pic at the bottom of this old review- http://www.mwctoys.com/REVIEW_050605b.htm
    Picked it up cheap in London about 5 years ago (priced up wrong) it was meant to be £125 but it had a £25 sticker... had to let me have it for the marked price...Yay!

    Thank you for the comparison pix, Jess. You may have posted them for PZ, but I think many of us ape-preciatte them...PS


    I know, I couldn't resist.Shoot me.
    Trust your feelings...and if you can't be good, be careful...

    Angel, those beards look great - nice job!

    Jess - its just so great having you back in town. Those gorilla head comparisons are great. Any thought on whether trimming down a SS head will allow the face to fit on the HT?

    Bugler, sound the advance

    Thanks Ironman.

    About a week ago, I told you I modifying an extra naked orangutan body that did not have any hands. To simulate the black gloves of a gorilla, I had painted some extra “flesh like” hands (belonging to James Bond) the color black. I also painted the orangutan forearms and his neck post the color black in order to help hide any parts of the tan orangutan body.

    Anyways, I started creating a new gorilla character this morning. This gorilla’s face is being inspired by the TV series. I’ll post a picture of this brute sometime today, probably tonight when he’s finished. Wish me luck!

    BTW – No scarecrows this weekend guys.

    Great photos Jessica. Glad to have you back!

    Not sure what I'd think of the camel milk. I guess you'd need a pretty tall stool to milk a camel huh?

    Your nephew’s sweater looks wonderful. He sure is a hairy little chimp, what’s his name?

    This gorilla thug I’m making was a last minute brainstorm. I was hoping to get one of Jessica’s gorilla sculpts originally, but I know she’s very busy with many other things. I’ve had suitcases sit in my basement unpacked for several weeks after a long trip. I dislike unpacking after traveling. Pitiful, I’m just pitiful. How does her family keep up with her?

    Back to the Scarecrows; they are still on my project list, and I see them being made soon… very soon.
