Symmetrical Stare

by just 'Hooper'

I’m in a little bit of a quandary over my illustration work – I’m enjoying doing one-off pieces based on little inspirations (saw one of these monkeys in my youngest’s reading book) – but essentially am I just doing the same picture again and again? They all carry the same symmetrical stare which could be seen as a stylistic trademark (Dan Clowes often uses it) or am I just retreading old ground? Think I might explore this in some research capacity – there’s a link to human attraction through symmetry.

By the way how do these guys ever get dry?
