Jolly Apes

 I like to work at night, because then I can listen to jazz. There is no jazz on the radio at daytime.
Not many people favour this music; I do, and I have done so since early childhood when it was even more unusual. Kids like what their parents like.
Maybe the music while working gave this ape a jazzy grin.
Below: I tried overpainting a pale print.
I could also remove the line around the monkey body.
Should I?

These monkeys are great (like all your animal stamps)

Are you curious about me? said...

Such fun, they look like they have what do dancers call it... Jazz hands.

Julie, that's perplexing!

I agree, leave the line. Your monkeys really do look so jolly. And thank you so much for your visit and kind words.

My dad is a great jazz buff and I acquired a love of this music young. Your monkey image captures that jazzy feeling, and I like the line outside, which accentuates their rythm.
