Sock Monkey 2

As always the Sock Monkey's take on a life of their own. They start out as an idea, something that you thought about and drew in your Devlopment Sketchbooks, then they become a thing that eventually has all its parts and need to be sewn together AND THEN they become REAL.

You spend all your spare time in the Art Room learning how to connect all the pieces, teaching and helping each other and the next thing I know, you are introducing me to Flanders, Homer, Bella or whomever it is your Sock Monkey has become. You talk about them as if they are people and all I hear about and see for days on end are Sock Monkeys populating our world as if an invasion has occurred. They are incredible.
