Monkey Prime: Ferdinand




Name: Ferdinand
Date of Birth: February 2008
Owner: Myself
Eyes: Teal Buttons
Favorite Outfits: Lately has been found wearing a top hat on a regular basis.
Story: In spring semester 2008 I had just returned from a semester studying abroad in Ireland. After having a rough semester (not the fault of Ireland, however), I decided that I wished to take advantage of the opportunities that my university gave me. At Iowa State, there is an art studio known as the Workspace.  Each of my roommates decided to take a class: one, on jewelry making, one, on basket weaving. As for myself, it was the one on sock monkeys that appealed to my sense of randomness and fun, though before I had never really cared much for the sock simians. The class itself was much fun, and birthed my sock monkey prime, Ferdinand. From this class, I learned the joy of making sock monkeys from socks not of the typical red-heel monkeys.

This was Ferdidand in the "bean with legs" stage. At least according to me. This stage may or may not be why these monkeys havce been dubbed "Drti."
