the monkey/rodeo panel above was for my storyboarding class. original layouts of the composition had the monkey in the ring behind the action, and the caption was about how the cowboy wishes he had realized earlier that the rodeo clown was a monkey. then i asked myself why a monkey couldn't be trained to be a rodeo clown,images of monkeys gleaning tasty bugs from eachothers hair came to mind, and the result was this comic. i thought i was pretty clever for using the word 'behemoth' in the caption since it describes both the object and intensity of his fantasy, but in retrospect (and with some criticism from the teacher) i realize that it makes the whole thing too wordy. not too clever after all.
