Geeky for I-Fri and Introducing Kristen Smith

Illustration Friday Challenge- Geeky.

Geek- geek (gēk) Slang.n.
A person regarded as foolish, inept, or clumsy.
A person who is single-minded or accomplished in scientific or technical pursuits but is felt to be socially inept.
A carnival performer whose show consists of bizarre acts, such as biting the head off a live, geeked, -ing, geeks.

Keeping this in mind I was going to draw a bunch of "nerds of the animal world" with glasses and pocket protectors... when I came accross this animal and figured he needed no modification at all. He must have been treated like a" geek" by other monkeys! LOL!!

I travel a lot going from store to store checking my company's product and setting displays. Occassionally I am in the right place at the right time and I find/meet a gem. Last week that gem was a young lady named Kristen Smith of Maryland. While sitting and chatting I discovered we both have art in common. Right away I asked if she knew about "Illustration Friday" and she said she did but was committed to Deviant Art. We chatted about art while and looked at my art that comes up on the screensaver of my laptop. She asked for a pen and paper and proceeded to draw this picture...which she gave to me. (This will be framed and hanging in my new studio as I love to have other artist's work hanging to inspire me!) I was so impressed with her talent I thought I would share with you. Please stop by her site and give her encouragement!
