Life, Art, and Monkeys


First of all, Yoshi's Woolly World is fantastic.


If you have a Wii U, or access to a Wii U, or are wandering through Best Buy and they have a demo station with this game available, you should check it out. Not only is it gorgeous, but it's classic fun. The animations are also dripping with charm and appeal. Five stars. Not only one of the best games I've played in years, but maybe one of my favorites ever. (Huge fan of Yoshi's Island on the SNES, but less so the ones that came after it. Until now!)

Given that I've been playing it recently, I thought I'd do some drawings of little Lakitu and his Spiny friend. Or... are they friends? It's hard to tell, given that Lakitu chucks the poor little guys out of the sky. Maybe it's a weird, symbiotic relationship. Or all Spinys secretely hate their Lakitu overlords. Anyway, here's a drawing!

Also the post this week at is on how learning a new skill can foster creativity. Check it out!

  1. The hurt and confusion on that poor Spiny’s face is positively heartbreaking.

    • Right? I looked up some reference, and 100% of all Spiny pictures are so angry! So I thought, what if one wasn’t so mad and had other feelings? (Plus it fit with a different project I’m working on on the side!)
