VanGoghmonkey's first experiment with structural paste (and artificial flowers, still not glued to the frame yet...)

(16-07-2010) - Mooooooved!

New design for VanGoghmonkey's gallery site

(21-06-2010) - Gallery online

Monkeys With Brushes proudly presents: Fifty of VanGoghmonkey's pictures. Right there in the shiny new flash gallery. (which is now, in 2013, well hidden because it was awful...)

(18-05-2010) - Eureka!
VanGoghmonkey has done it - his first selfmade monkey-site! Little creature hopes it's also his last, or maybe next time there will be hundreds of helpful monkey paws...(Professor Monkey? You hear that? We need lots an' lots of monkey clones...)
