INKTOBER 52 2023 Day #49: GROUCHY.

“Who knew squids – especially Plunger Monkey’s bud the Multi-Purpose Novelty Squid – could be so expressive? I guess that’s bound to happen when one has an excessive amount of arms. You can simultaneously cross your arms and put them on your hips (..ignoring for the moment that squids don’t have hips…) in an ultimate ‘harumph’ kind of a gesture. It’s easy to understand the MPNS’ displeasure, but honestly, PMD has a point. A squid head isn’t exactly ideal for a plunger hat. I think once MPNS realizes this makes him kind of a squid unicorn his grouchiness will dissipate.”

Are you enjoying all these Plunger Monkey pen and ink illustrations? Would you like to see a whole lot more of them, all nicely packaged in book form? Then you’re in luck! You can get a copy of my art book Inklings, which collects 3 years of these pen and ink illustrations! Just follow this link:
