Happy New Year!

The Chinese New Year is on February 8th 2016.  It’s the year of the Monkey!
Most of the reverse images of monkeys I’ve seen so far have been ‘realistic’ in style and fairly poor works of design. But here’s a stylized monkey from Canada that bypasses ‘realistic’ fur for swirls and short lines and looks distinctly mischievous with the fruit of plenty in hand.
