Monkey vs Robot

So, a few weeks ago I noticed I had four 20 x 20 cm pieces of hanji laying around. I don’t remember why they were there, but they were. And so I drew a monkey on one of them:

Having a monkey on hand, I had to decide what to do with the other pieces. Two options came to mind. My first thought was to make a portrait style for each sign of the Eastern Zodiac. But then I remembered a song…

So monkey vs robot it is!

After I drew up the sapiens and automatons, I had a tough choice. I really liked the pieces in black and white. But I also wanted to add some color. So I did! I decided to have all the pieces be connected with red…

The monkeys I colored with orange and a warm green, while the robots I colored with blue and violet.

I’m thinking of keeping them together as a tetraptych, because that’s a friggin’ awesome word few of us get to use all that often.

I will be doing a few memes with these as well. Here’s one:
