Those monkeys really have blank expressions- in one ear and out the other, I guess!!

This is just great. The pin-up-ish figure of Jane, combined with the blank expressions of the monkeys is so funny!

Something about this picture just fills me with glee! Maybe its the rapt attention of the creatures (something I can understand, as a huge book lover) or maybe it's Tarzan's bangs, or Jane's pinup cuteness next to the rest of the jungle... I don't know, but I love it! Thanks for sharing it with us!

Instead of making all the monkeys look the same, you gave 'em all a distinct appearance and character. I love that!

Haha, Tarzan sorta sticks out, doesn't he?
