PALETTE OF THE APES
portrait of the artist as a young primate
Anyone looking for an interesting conversation piece to add to their abode should look here. Koko the gorilla, she of the 1,000-word sign language vocabulary fame, is also a budding artist. Her works, and those of her companion Michael, are on display here in the Tampa Bay area and are for sale, too. Maybe I'll scoop up one of those t-shirts!

I'm no art critic, but I think Michael had more artistic talent; and so I've planted his photo above instead of that of his more famous "sister". Unfortunately, he's no longer with us. But hey, the great artistes are never really recognized until after they've died, right?
