Jumping Ninja, Flying Monkey

A request was made for an illustration of a “flying” monkey. I initially thought “no, I won’t draw a flying monkey, that was already done in the Wizard of Oz.”  I quickly had a change of heart when I began to realize the loose nature of the term ‘flying’. My thoughts turned to  slow motion Matrix-esque action scenes as well as Chinese fight scenes where people are defying gravity all over the place. I therefore call the following painting ‘Jumping Ninja, Flying Monkey.’ The tree was added to emphasize the importance of nature in all good martial arts sequences (that’s not true, I actually just wanted to practice painting trees… but let’s just keep that between us).
